Google maps labels city's neigborhoods. We all know the cliche ones, Indian Village, EEV, Palmer Park, Delray, Brightmoor, etc. What about the less known and obscure ones?
Here's a partial list: (with their possible major street intersection, just guessing)
The Eye (McNichols and Telegraph)
Five Points (Five Points, Telegraph, 7 Mile)
Barton-McFarland (Chicago and Meyers)
Fishkorn (Joy and Greenfield)
Greensbriar (Goulburn and 8 Mile)
Grixdale (NW of Jos Campau and Nevada)
Blackstone Park (SE of 8 Mile and Schaefer)
Belmont (Puritan and Greenfield)
Franklin Park (Chicago and Evergreen)
Krainz Woods (7 Mile and Mound)
I would love to know how they were named, their histories, if they have community associations, if anyone lives here, memories, etc. Do residents know about the name?
Was their ever a "naming convention" where city leaders assigned names for different neighborhoods?
I didn't grow up in the city, but I know the basic neighborhoods and know my way around the city well, but have always been interested in the city's diverse neighborhoods. Is their a definitive source for the city's hoods?
