Asset 1

Filled with vibrant buildings and some of the best street art in the city. Isn’t the most happening place, but seems to have more restaurants than any other hood. You do have to do some exploring on your own, since most places are spread out. Vernor Highway and Bagley St. contain most of the highlights.
