City of Detroit, Houses for Bid Sale List

See the list at City of Detroit website:

copy/paste individual property addresses w/ zip code into Google maps to see a 360 view; neighborhood/street view is important! Look for other vacant houses or signs of dereliction, vandalism, vagrancy, litter/pollution, tagging/graffiti, etc. Vacant lots are okay.

Although the east side (seat of Woodward) was formerly very grand and green, it’s now a scary mess. Take for example the faux-Catholic Church (fka St. Anthony) on corner of Gratiot  and Sheridan http://www.cathedralofstanthonydetroit.org/historical-information.php

These dudes pretend to be ‘ecumenical catholic new Franciscans’ (what?), but are really vampires (maybe).

Anyway, stay on the west side — west and/or northwest of Woodward. That’s my plan, close to Dearborn or Southfield. Although I like the Del Ray Mexican-town area as well (south of center-Detroit).
