Corktown

Detroit's oldest neighborhood, Corktown, is located just west of the downtown commercial district. Its historic streets boast Victorian-era row houses, beautifully restored with vibrant colors and careful gardens. The neighborhood is a tight-knit community, and the surrounding entertainment district is great for music and bar hopping.

Development News “The Southwest Greenway will make it easy and fun for people living and working on the west side of Detroit to get to the Detroit Riverfront,” says Matt Cullen, chairman, Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.
