The only reason I am giving this 4, not 5, stars is that the appeal as an "attraction" isn't there. If you are in the area for business it is a lovely area and it really demonstrates the revival of the city. The restaurants are nice and the area is very clean. I just wouldn't go out of my way...

The first time I saw this area was long ago when I rode the people mover from Cobo center. Then I decided to give it a check by strolling through the area. It is a nice area with lots of cafes and restaurants. Apparently it gets its name from is brick houses characterising it.

Just outside of Greektown is a very nice area. Plenty of bars and restaurants on the street. Some of Detroit's more upscale area, with a bit of history thrown in to the mix. Great representation of where Detroit is headed
