SOUND OFF: What is the name of this neighborhood?
We need your help in deciding what to call this District 6 neighborhood
We’re having an internal debate here at The Neighborhoods, and we need your help to settle it.
See the grey-highlighted space in the picture of the map above? On our City of Detroit map, it’s referred to as Southwest. It is bounded by Michigan Avenue, I-75, West Vernor Highway, Clark Street, the railroad tracks and Livernois Avenue.
Here’s the thing, though -- when The Neighborhoods first launched last month, we were referring to this area as “Southwest Detroit.” But after a review of the citywide map, we were briefly calling it “Central Southwest” for a day or two. And now we’ve reverted to just “Southwest.”
But after the City of Detroit’s Department of Neighborhoods surveyed the area, we ended up stuck with three different possibilities. So what say you? Southwest Detroit? Central Southwest? Southwest? Or something else entirely?
