“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
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.
