Central Woodward-Boston Edison

The Central Woodward area of Detroit is located between the Lodge and I-75 freeways, north of the New Center and south of Highland Park. The neighborhood is home to some of the richest historic residential architecture in Detroit, including the Boston-Edison and Arden Park historic districts, as well as several historic churches in  the "Piety Hill" area of Woodward Avenue.
 
The area once was home to people like Henry Ford and S.S. Kresge, as well as physicians, teachers, and factory workers. It is now affordable for middle income homeowners.
 
Central Woodward is in close proximity to Midtown and downtown, and is easily within 20 minutes of shopping options in the East, West and Northern suburbs.
