NOTE: These are not the official neighborhoods of Detroit. The City of Detroit’s Department of Neighborhoods released their own update in 2015. Find those available HERE
From Loveland Technologies, makers of Why Don’t We Own This, this is a more recent attempt to pull together various understandings of neighborhoods in Detroit. A continually controversial topic and likely only get more confusing as the city “redevelops.”
“We got tired of looking at a Detroit split up by zip codes, and all the neighborhood maps of Detroit that are half empty, so we created a map where Detroit is completely filled in with neighborhoods.
We know it’s not 100% accurate (there’s probably no such thing as a completely accurate Detroit neighborhood map) so if you see things that are wrong, take it to the comments and let us know! The map will change as our understanding of peoples’ neighborhoods does!”
