Hamtramck


Hamtramck is a 2.2-square-mile city within the city, packed with a population that is one of the region's most diverse and culturally unique, with strong influences from people with Polish, Bangladeshi, Arab, Bosnian and African American backgrounds. Add to that ethnic mix a growing population of artists, hipsters, students and Midtown and downtown professionals who appreciate living in a vibrant, walkable neighborhood minutes away from anywhere by car or bicycle.
