Most Liveable Cities: Detroit

DETROIT: See our vitality, our joy, our happiness.

Detroit is a city of vigor many of us haven’t seen in the news. It’s a place where neighbors are reimagining work, food, and the very meaning of humanity. Get to know Detroit from the inside out, from those who love their city more than anything.

Did you know:


Detroiters are Detroit’s greatest asset? Detroiters have never stopped caring. A fiercely independent, optimistic, resilient, and creative spirit has existed in the city for decades. Many who could leave have doubled down and stayed. “We're a people who make a way out of no way, something all of our Southern grandparents and great-grandparents passed down to us.” – Aaron Foley

Detroit has a Chief Storyteller? When journalist Aaron Foley, a Detroit native, was approached by Mayor Mike Duggan to help shape a new narrative about the people living and working in Detroit’s neighborhoods, he jumped at the chance. In 2017, Foley became Detroit’s first “chief storyteller” — an unusual title for a job in local government.

Detroit’s 200 plus distinct neighborhoods are the spirit of the city? The Detroit area's diverse population includes people of French, Belgian, German, Hispanic, Polish, Greek, Italian, and Middle Eastern background, in addition to its predominant African-American population. Each adds its rich cultural traditions.
