I am from the Metro Detroit area, although live in chitcity presently and have done my best to see the most visible areas of the city ie. brush, greektown, corktown, midtown tourist attractions, Belle Isle, Indian Village, Mexican town, Boston Edison etc. Anyone want to give some suggestions about less known areas in the city whether up and coming or kindof on the fringes that would be interesting to explore?

hi. This off the wall, but look at Old Redford, just west of Lahser and then south of Grand River. I think this was a small town that was swallowed up by Detroit a long time ago. The streets twist and turn, like a knot or a nail that has has been swallowed up by a growing tree. For dessert you shop hit Grandlawn Cemetary - excellent for sitting and thinking.

Check out Historic Fort Wayne at the foot of Livernois on the Detroit River. It's an 1840s-era brick "star" fort like the kind you would associate with the Civil War. There was a major Army post here until shortly after Vietnam. It is an amazing place with spectacular views of the city. It's closed to the public most of the time, but will be open for a flea market April 21 - 22.

Palm Park or Indian Village for historic homes. Pewabic Pottery is a hidden gem. If you want to get a different perspective of the city then take the Diamond Jack tour boat. Mexican Town is an area which is rebounding and worth exploring. Buy a fresh bag of tamales and a jar of salse for some cheap eats.

Get a good pair of tennis shoes a camera and walk all over downtown. Do some research first of the buildings and history. Find things like the Michigan theater and explore, it really is cool.
