Map: Median Value of Owner-Occupied Housing 1960

dox-1960-home-value

From Doxiadis’ “Emergence and Growth of an Urban Region” Volume 2, this map utilized 1960s Census data.

The most important pattern to see in this map is the low value (and likely low quality) home values in what would have been Detroit’s minority neighborhoods in the “core city” area and Southwest, while the outer neighborhoods (notably Palmer Woods and Grandmont-Rosedale) were much more valuable and predominantly white.
