How different are Old Detroit and New Detroit really?
The Foundation asked data partner Data Driven Detroit to find out. Looking at a variety of public data sets, D3 compared the 7.2 square-mile Greater Downtown area (“new” Detroit) with the neighborhoods that make up the rest of Detroit (“old” Detroit), and an interesting portrait emerged. There are differences, certainly; but overall, the two parts of Detroit that so many consider distinct are more alike than you’d assume. Our Detroit is, in many ways, already a reality.
