Tucked into the far west corner of the city, Warrendale is one of Detroit's largest and most culturally diverse neighborhoods. A steady influx of Arab immigrants in the 20th century has given the neighborhood its flavor, from the Middle Eastern grocery markets on Warren Avenue to the gas-station sandwich shops on Joy Road. Warrendale is also well known for its collection of karoake-themed lounges, Coney Island hot-dog joints, and burlesque bars. This area is among the city's least tourist-oriented neighborhoods and can be rough around the edges, so only adventurous visitors who know where they're headed make the trip here.
Getting Around Detroit
The best way to get around Detroit is on the Detroit People Mover (DPM), an automated light rail system in downtown Detroit that operates every 3 minutes. Fares are $0.75 per ride. Hours of operation are 6:30 a.m.-midnight Monday-Thursday; 6:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-2 a.m. Saturday and noon-midnight Sunday. Hailing a cab from the street is nearly impossible; reserve one instead (try Checker Cab Detroit: 313-963-7000). Taxis charge $2.50 per trip plus $1.60 per mile.
