Cultured, exciting, and proud. People from Ypsi stick together, united by an old water tower, Dom's Donuts, and cash-only establishments. Generally safe, very diverse, and lots of quirky local shops. Ypsi's brand is "Ypsi real" and I couldn't agree more. Though part of the Ann Arbor area, Ypsi is the more real, the more trendy, the more affordable, and the more exciting neighborhood. For being the A2's slum, its one fine slum.

I believe that the Ypsilanti Township owns a sense of history to its owners as well as to newcomers. Especially with Depot Town within Ypsilanti. Depot Town is an area where the well known restaurant such as, Sidetracks, is part of the experience with Ypsilanti. Sidetracks holds the history of how long the restaurant has been there on the side of the railroad tracks. It is an attraction based restaurant of the way it was set up to be as the train travels beside the restaurant for customers to watch. Not that many townships have trains ride through a small part of town itself. This alone provides a sense of individuality in Ypsilanti.
Ypsilanti is a small city, however still very close and easy accessibility to large/popular neighboring cities ex: Ann Arbor and Detroit. While still considered a college town lots to do for all ages and plenty of really good restaurants. Variety of housing options with plenty of affordable apartments. Local to many other school districts and definitely family friendly. There are areas that aren't considered the safest, however that comes with every city.
