I have lived in Warren, Michigan my entire life, 28 years to be exact. For the time I have lived in Warren, I have never had any issues with safety or commuting. Living in Warren you can hop on the expressway quickly and make it to the cities around us like Grosse Pointe, Detroit, Rochestor, Royal Oak, and Ferndale within 20 minutes. Warren has many wonderful things to offer like their farmers market every Sunday located at the Warren Civic Center. When you are not enjoying the farmers market in the summer and the water fountain for family fun, the fountain turns into an ice skating rink in the winter. The Civic Center library is a wonderful resource to study, and be socially active in our community. Warren also has a wonderful community center, it has a gym, day care facility, summer camp, playground, walking path, pool, and offers many activities for all ages especially senior citizens.

I have lived in Warren my entire life. It is a great city with wonderful schools! I have had 2 different jobs within Warren. The first being at a Little Caesars, and the second a job shadow at a local elementary school! I feel that Warren is fairly safe and pretty affordable! I am proud to say that I grew up in the city of Warren!
Warren doesn't have any glaring flaws when it comes to safety and public services. Where it falls behind, compared to other cities are entertainment and public spaces. Although the city center has a wonderful library, parks and other public spaces, especially drawing closer to Detroit, lay in disarray and aren't taken of properly. The city is a prime example of how diversity sweetens the communities where it takes place. From Bengalis, Yemini, and Filipinos, Warren feels like a safe city that minorities can live out the "American Dream". Warren also limits commute options other than car, which isn't great for those who want a more vibrant and walkable city to live in.
