West Village Reviews

3
We’ve lived here for 7 years and love it. I would argue this is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city. There is people of all ages, races and back ground. We have apartments all the way up to mansions. Plenty of food options and even inclusive work out studios.

I, like my parents, was born and raised in Detroit. Over the past 18 years, I have witnessed significant change in Detroit. I honestly cannot compare Detroit to everywhere else in the country, because it is so different, and so unique. If I could do it all over again, I most certainly would choose to live in Detroit again.
In some areas of the city, crime is more prevalent than in other areas. In my neighborhood, crime is not a big issue, but in other areas it is a big problem.
