Oh I’ve been here 8 yrs.

I love the diversity there is 13 different nationalities here.

I feel safe and the neighborhood is starting to make a big change.
New roofs, siding and complete overhaul of houses!
Roads being repaired and new sidewalks.

I love Hamtramck!

Some places are close by so you can go for a walk, they clean the streets 2x a month. There are many stores and schools near by but the streets have bumps or pot holes, when it rains the basements get flooded but the city wants you to pay extra to protect yourself from damages done by the cities pipes!
The things that I like about our city of Hamtramck is that there is a lot of cultural diversities in religion and political beliefs. The economy in Hamtramck is vast growing even in the Real Estate Market where the value of houses is highly priced. Every citizen in Hamtramck has friends or families that they can communicate to every day which makes a Family Friendly environment. The improvements that we need in our society is to have better Public Schools were our children can learn, read, and write. These are the overall experience that I have living in the city of Hamtramck.
