#Skoe on Feb 22, 2014 :
One of the nicest and most expensive malls in America is on 16 mile (Somerset Mall, in case you're curious)...seriously 8 miles north of the infamous 8 mile are areas like Troy, Burmingham, Sterling Heights...there are many multi-million dollar homes in Burmingham...
#bob on Jan 03, 2014 :
Its including Detroit and the surrounding area
#christernyc . on Dec 04, 2013 :
How is it that the cost of living seems so high for a bankrupt city?
#Paul Woodward on Jul 25, 2013 :
What about the "Free houses"...those 20% that abandoned?
That should make Detroit one of the least expensive places to live.
