    This was an incredible thing to see in person. It is a powerful artistic response to neglected or abandoned properties and objects. It exemplifies the proverb - One man's trash is another man's treasu...  more »

    Unique array of misc odd junk affixed to houses/trees in neighborhood. Quirky at best. Artist friend took dozens of photos. Not my cup of tea. So truly in the eye of the beholder.  more »

    This area is full of rats and vermin crawling around all of the stuffed animals and garbage that is in the park, nailed to homes and strewn about. It's a total disgusting pit.  more »

    I honestly love coming here. It's almost always altered in someway, with something new added. It's a really good place to go for free family time, and a brief history lesson. There's lots to see here, so bring the whole family and have a walk around and a good time- sign the house at the end if the owner lets you!

    This place isn't for everyone. If you try to judge it from the face, it'll look like a junkyard and sometimes even eery. But once you get past the visual and understanding the idea behind the installations, you may start appreciating it. Drawing so many people to this isolated location is in itself a great achievement...

    A unique place to visit in Detroit! It's not your typical street art, but it is packed with meaning and nuances. It changes from time to time and you can see that in photos in the gift shop they have in one of the houses!

    I enjoy periodically visiting this collection of weird stuff and paintings on a couple blocks of old houses in Detroit... it keeps evolving and changing as things are added or destroyed. It's a unique display of art and tragedy, convicting vistors to do their part to change the world for good.

    Breathtaking work! Worth an hour of exploring. Respect the area by not parking in front of homes & staying off residents' grass.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
