Ham Town, or Hamtramck. Call it what you want; this hood (yes, also technically its own city) is going places! The two-square miles got fifteen million bucks for housing redevelopment which will allow it to tear down 78 dilapidated homes, rehab 14, and build 25 new units of housing. Said Jason Friedmann, the city’s Director of Community & Economic Development “It’s a huge chunk of money. The grant was the largest HUD has ever given out.” Bottom line? Take this article's advice: If you have a job and are still renting, now is the time to buy.
