Midtown




Midtown is the city's cultural hub -- with some of the best galleries and museums. It also boasts a vibrant blend of housing -- historical and new construction, affordable and luxurious, townhouses and lofts. The neighborhood has great restaurants, shops, nightlife, plus Wayne State University and College for Creative Studies.
