The North End
The North End neighborhood is poised to take advantage of nearby economic improvements to take the next step into a revitalized and vibrant future. Many of Detroit’s brightest artists, urban farmers and entrepreneurs are happy to call the North End home. The neighborhood’s strategic location just northeast of New Center and west of the City of Hamtramck provides close proximity to some of the strategic reinvestment Detroit has been receiving. The Q-Line streetcar system, which terminates on Woodward Avenue on the western border of the neighborhood, is an example of the kind of economic catalyst that will serve as an anchor for future revitalization.
