One of the things that I love the most about Ypsilanti and the surrounding area is the amount of diversity. Not only can you find people of all different races, ethnicities, religions, beliefs, etc. but there is a beautiful sense of shared ownership of the town, and the town is super open to creating a new and beautiful environment where everyone is allowed to be themselves and to shine!

I like that Ypsilanti is a friendly atmosphere with a small city feel. I like that people are kind and sociable and they talk to you regularly and that many of the residents are intelligent and able to articulate their thoughts very well.
However, despite the things that I like about this area, there are a lot more that I dislike. The main things that I dislike are: The overwhelming sense of quiet desperation that turns people into both criminal and or drug addicts. I dislike that there is poverty and extreme examples of wealth in this cultural melting pot. I do not like that on your greatest day here people can bring you so low because while individually one may like you, they like themselves a lot more than the surface level that most show towards you.
I've been here my whole life, therefore I am used to things here. This town is all I've ever known. It's not the biggest city so it's easy to get around. Everybody is familar with everything. Also, everyone seems to be related or know each other. A funny thing about this area is that it's not very known. Someone from out the way might ask where you are from, and you respond Detroit or Ann Arbor because if you say Ypsilanti, you usually get a confused look.
