    "What makes the neighborhood (Greektown) special is that it has many authentic places that exist nowhere like Artopolis. Not to mention that the area is considered safe in comparison to other neighborhoods close to the loop. Other words that might describe it are (kinda quiet yet active, strategically located). "
