Morningside is a very stable area located on the eastside of Detroit. It borders 1-94 to Mack and Alter Rd to E. Outer Dr. It has a very good housing stock of brick houses mostly built in the 1920s. This is considered one of the nicer, more stable areas on the eastside. Although it has suffered a great deal due to lending practice, as this was one of the areas that saw the most appreciation of value during the house boom. Areas of Detroit where there were a lot of sales were also the areas that suffered the most. This area was selling for well over 100k ten years ago , it was beautiful area. It was where most of the city employees lived before the residency requirement was lifted which also caused a surge in area sales as homes in this area that were rarely available were then for sale. It is a very anchored community, it is part of HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Program: Morningside Community Organizations is one of the most active in the city; Habitat for Humanity is also working in the area on a infill project building new homes; there is also good school in the area including a brand New East English Academy. This area includes many neighborhood businesses as well being located close to major Shopping Centers. I hope this helps you.
