Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we’ll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, and more. Have something you want discussed? Let us know. This week’s topic: what do you love about a certain Detroit neighborhood.

Detroit is full of many unique neighborhoods—over 200, to be exact. From the historic storefronts in Corktown to the canals in Jefferson-Chalmers to the odd layout—over two cities—of the Aviation Sub, there’s something to love about all of them.

What draws us to a neighborhood? Is it the classic architecture? The amenities? The history? The walkability? The people? The potential? The public art?

Today we want to know which neighborhood in Detroit is your favorite. It might not be the one you live in—for a variety of reasons. If you don’t, why are you drawn to it? Do you visit the shops or restaurants? Is there a big park you where you like to find solitude? Did you grow up there? Or is there a history to it that you love to learn more about?

Share your thoughts in the comments here, and remember, this is all about neighborhood pride.
