10. Things are starting to come back in pockets, but
there's no good central shopping area and no decent malls or typical downtown shopping area like you find in other major cities of any kind. Detroit is not like most other major cities. There is a lot of new development, but it's happening very, very slowly and there are decent areas right next to slum areas that stretch for miles. I don't mean to paint a bleak picture, but the city has never really come back completely after the 1967 riots.

Boston-Edison is a beautiful area, but there are bad areas right around it, and you'll find that you'd be better off going to the suburbs for shopping, movies, etc. The casinos, theatre, museums, ballpark, etc. are in the city proper and convenient to Boston-Edison.
