What is the most newly developed suburb that shares a border with Detroit? I say Southfield.

homelessville. it's not legally incorporated as of this time, but the folks living under the i75 overpass at eight-mile qualify.

Nothing new about that. Back in the 30's, the inner-ring suburb of Detroit where I grew up had a homeless man named "Duco Mike" (the town's population was only about 3,000 at the time). When he needed shelter, he would use the ice shed behind one of the local businesses. With a colorful nickname like "Duco", it's clear that there is nothing new about "huffing", either.

Though the city is old Ford land with all the development is a newer part of town along Detroit. It always is quite a site going down Southfield and passing Paul St into Dearborn (Yes I know the D on the west goes to Ford Rd.).
