Poll: Vote for the most beautiful street in Detroit

poll-vote-for-the-most-beautiful-street-in-detroit

Recently, we asked our readers to immerse themselves in what they consider to be the most beautiful street in Detroit. There were definitely a couple of outstanding and many honorable mentions. There were definitely some common themes. These streets have well-kept historic houses, outstanding architecture, and many are tree-lined. Now we’ll leave it to a poll and the winner will be featured on Curbed.com. Here are your choices.

Ferry Street

This section of Ferry Street spans two blocks from Woodward to Brush and is listed as both a Historic District and the National Register of Historic Places. It includes the Col. Frank J. Hecker House on the corner of Woodward and Ferry and the Inn on Ferry Street, arguably the most beautiful hotel in town.

Pallister Avenue

Over in the New Center, Pallister Avenue feels like a little oasis in the middle of the neighborhood. Lush trees almost create a tunnel for this brick-lined pedestrian street in summer.

W. Boston Boulevard, between Woodward and the Lodge

We’re submitting this for review as one block contains two of the city’s most impressive mansions. Boston-Edison has hundreds of beautiful houses, but on Boston between Woodward and Second you can see both the Kresge and Siegel mansions.

West Canfield

The West Canfield Historic District is between the second and third on the Cass Corridor. The Queen Anne Homes were built in the 1870s and 1880s and it is now a one-way street lined with trees and street lights.

Avery Streetbetween Willis and Alexandrine

Woodbridge is full of beautiful blocks (seriously, make your choice), and our readers picked this one for its well-kept homes and landscaping. Though Commonwealth was a very, very close second.
