WE ARE CORE CITY
Just past the northwest border of Corktown and Woodbridge is the close-knit community of Core City. Over the years, the nonprofit Core City Neighborhoods Inc. has helped lead the effort to build homes, including about 100 single-family houses and townhomes in the early 2000s for moderate to low-income residents. Warren Avenue, Grand River Avenue, Martin Luther King Boulevard and Michigan Avenue are the main thoroughfares in this 4-square-mile neighborhood. On Michigan Avenue, staples such as Hygrade Deli and Mike’s Famous Ham Place as well as the infamous Highwaymen Motorcycle Club are among Core City’s most familiar storefronts.
