Detroit is a major port on the Detroit River, one of the four major straits that connect the Great Lakes system to the Saint Lawrence Seaway. The metropolitan area, known as Metro Detroit, is home to 4.3 million people, making it the second-largest in the Midwest after the Chicago metropolitan area. The city's name comes from the word 'détroit' meaning "strait" as the city was situated on a narrow passage of water. In 1701, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac and Alphonse de Tonty founded Fort Pontchartrain du Détroit, the future city of Detroit. Detroit is best known as the center of the U.S. automobile industry, and the "Big Three" auto manufacturers General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis North America (Chrysler) are all headquartered in Metro Detroit. As of 2007, the Detroit metropolitan area is the number one exporting region among 310 defined metropolitan areas in the United States. Detroit and its neighboring Canadian city Windsor are connected through a highway tunnel, railway tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge, which is second-busiest international crossing in North America, after San DiegoTijuana. Both cities will soon be connected by a new bridge currently under construction, which will provide a complete freeway-to-freeway link. The new bridge is expected to be open by 2024. In 2013, Detroit became the largest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy, which it successfully exited in December 2014, when the city government regained control of the finances.

Toponymy

Detroit is the primary city name, but also Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pt Pk are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Detroit. Detroit is named after the Detroit River, connecting Lake Huron with Lake Erie. The city's name comes from the French word 'détroit' meaning "strait" as the city was situated on a narrow passage of water linking two lakes. The river was known as le détroit du Lac Érié," among the French, which meant "the strait of Lake Erie". The city is located in the province of Michigan, which is part of the Canadian province of Ontario. It is the largest city in the state, with a population of more than 1.5 million. It was founded in 1836 and is home to the Detroit Institute of Arts, a museum of art and culture, and the Detroit Museum of Nature and Science, which was established in 1851. The Detroit River runs through the city and was once known as the 'Detroit strait' or 'Detroit-Erie strait', meaning "the Detroit strait" or 'the Detroit-Erié strait'. It was also known as 'Le Detroit' or "Le Detroit" in French, meaning "The Detroit River" or "TheDetroit Strait" by the French. The name 'Detroit' is now used to refer to the city as a whole, rather than just the river that runs through it. It also means "Detroit" in English, and "Detroit River" in German, which means 'Detroit's River' and 'Detroit River' in both languages. The word 'Détroit" means'strait' in French.

History

The city was named by French colonists, referring to the Detroit River (French: le détroit du lac Érié, meaning the strait of Lake Erie), linking Lake Huron and Lake Erie. It was the third-largest city in what was known as the Province of Quebec since the British takeover of French colonies following their victory in the Seven Years' War. The region's economy was based on the lucrative fur trade, in which numerous Native American people had important roles as trappers and traders. Descendants of the earliest French and French-Canadian settlers formed a cohesive community, who gradually were superseded as the dominant population after more Anglo-American settlers arrived in the early 19th century with American westward migration. Today the flag of Detroit reflects its French colonial heritage. The Great Fire of 1805 destroyed most of Detroit, which had primarily buildings made of wood, chimneys and wooden homes. The city is located in the Upper Great Lakes region of the U.S. and was once the largest city in the state of Michigan, with a population of 2,144. It is located on the banks of the Detroit and St. Clair rivers, which were once part of the Upper and Lower Great Lakes watersheds. Detroit was the site of the Battle of Detroit (1763), which was fought between British and French troops in the North American front of the French and Indian War (175463-175463) The city's name was shortened to Detroit in 1760 and shortened its name to Detroit.

Economy

Several major corporations are based in the city, including three Fortune 500 companies. The most heavily represented sectors are manufacturing (particularly automotive), finance, technology, and health care. The city of Detroit and other publicprivate partnerships have attempted to catalyze the region's growth by facilitating the building and historical rehabilitation of residential high-rises in the downtown. Since 2006, $9.9 billion has been invested in downtown and surrounding neighborhoods; $5.5 billion in 2013 and 2014. The number of vacant downtown buildings has dropped from nearly 50 to around 13 on July 25, 2013, Meijer, a midwestern retail chain, opened its first supercenter store in Detroit in the northern portion of the city and it is also the centerpiece of a new $72 million shopping center named Gateway Marketplace.

In April 2014, the United States Department of Labor reported the city's unemployment rate at 14.5%. The city itself has cleared sections of land while retaining a number of historically significant vacant buildings in order to spur redevelopment; even though it has struggled with finances, the city issued bonds in 2008 to provide funding for ongoing work to demolish blighted properties. In the decade prior to 2006, downtown gained more than $15 billion in new investment from private and public sectors. A study in 2007 found out that Downtown's new residents are predominantly young professionals (57% are ages 25 to 34, 45% have bachelor's degrees, and 34% have a master's degree).

Arts and culture

Detroit has a rich musical heritage and has contributed to a number of different genres. The city's theatre venue circuit is the United States' second largest and hosts Broadway performances. Live music has been a prominent feature of Detroit's nightlife since the late 1940s. Berry Gordy, Jr. founded Motown Records, which rose to prominence during the 1960s and early 1970s with acts such as Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, the Jackson 5, Martha and the Vandellas, The Spinners, Gladys Knight & The Marvelettes, The Elgins, The Monitors, The Velvettes, and Marvin Gaye in the house band The Motown Sound. Detroit's proximity to Windsor, Ontario, provides for views and nightlife, along with Ontario's minimum drinking age of 19. A 2011 study by Walk Score recognized Detroit for its above average walkability among large U.S. cities. About two-thirds of suburban residents occasionally dine and attend cultural events or take in professional games in the city of Detroit. In the central portions of Detroit, the population of young professionals, artists, and other transplants is growing and retail is expanding. This dynamic is luring additional new residents, and former residents returning from other cities, to the city's Downtown along with the revitalized Midtown and New Center areas. A desire to be closer to the urban scene has also attracted some young professionals to reside in inner ring suburbs such as Ferndale and Royal Oak.

Since 2017, all of these teams play in the city limits of Detroit itself. The city hosted the 2005 MLB All-Star Game, 2006 Super Bowl XL, both the 2006 and 2012 World Series, WrestleMania 23 in 2007, and the NCAA Final Four in April 2009.

In the years following the mid-1930s, Detroit was referred to as the "City of Champions" after the Tigers, Lions, and Red Wings captured the three major professional sports championships in existence at the time in a seven-month period of time. In college sports, Detroit's central location within the Mid-American Conference has made it a frequent site for the league's championship events. The University of Detroit Mercy has an NCAA Division I program, and Wayne State University has both Division I and II programs. The NCAA football Quick Lane Bowl is held at Ford Field each December. The Detroit Tigers have won four World Series titles (1935, 1945,1968, and 1984).

The government of Detroit is run by a mayor, the nine-member Detroit City Council, the eleven-member Board of Police Commissioners, and a clerk. All of these officers are elected on a nonpartisan ballot, with the exception of four of the police commissioners, who are appointed by the mayor. The city is home to the Thirty-Sixth District Court, as well as the First District of the Michigan Court of Appeals and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Detroit is sometimes referred to as a sanctuary city because it has "anti-profiling ordinances that generally prohibit local police from asking about the immigration status of people who are not suspected of any crime" The city provides law enforcement through the Detroit Police Department and emergency services through theDetroit Fire Department. In March 2013, Governor Rick Snyder declared a financial emergency in the city, stating the city had a $327 million budget deficit and faced more than $14 billion in long-term debt. In 2016, further corruption charges were brought against 12 principals, a former school superintendent and supply vendor for a $12 million kickback scheme. Detroit's protracted decline has resulted in severe urban decay, with thousands of empty buildings around the city. Some parts of Detroit are so sparsely populated the city has difficulty providing municipal services. Roughly half of the owners of Detroit's 305,000 properties failed to pay their 2011 tax bills, resulting in about $246 million in taxes and fees going uncollected, nearly half of which was due to Detroit.

Name

Hamtramck is the primary city name, but also Detroit are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Hamtramck. Hamtramck is named for the first American commander of Fort Shelby, the fortification at Detroit. It was originally known as Hamtamck Township. It is located on the banks of the Detroit River, near the city of Detroit. The town is now home to the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Museum of Art, which was founded in 1872. The city is also home to a number of museums, including the Michigan History Museum and the Michigan Museum of Science and Industry, which opened its doors in 1876. The Detroit River runs through the town, and it was originally called Hamtramcke Township, after the French-Canadian soldier Jean-Francois HamtAMck, who was the first commander of the Fort Shelby fortification. The name was later changed to Hamtams Township. The current name is in honor of the town's namesake, Hamtrams, a former mayor of Detroit, who died in 1881. It's also known as the Detroit International Airport, where it was built in 1883, and as the site of the U.S. Army's first air base, the Detroit National Guard base, and the National Museum of History and Art, among other things.

History

As of the 2010 American Community Survey, the city's foreign born population stood at 41.1%, making it Michigan's most internationally diverse city. The population was 43,355 in the 1950 Census and 18,372 in 1990 Census. In 1901, part of the township incorporated as a village to gain more control over the settlement's affairs. By 1922 the village was reincorporated as a city to fend off annexation attempts by the neighboring city of Detroit. The city is said to have been the first to elect a Muslim-majority council in the country. In 1970, 90% of Hamtramck's population was Polish, and by the end of the 20th century, the population had dropped to 14.5%. The city was once primarily farmland, although the Detroit Stove Works employed 1,300 workers to manufacture stoves. In 1910, the newly founded Dodge Main assembly plant created jobs for thousands of workers and led to additional millions of dollars in the city. By the mid-1920s, 78% of the residents of Ham tramck owned their own houses or were buying their houses. Around that time, the factory workers made up 85% ofHamtramk's heads of households. In the 1990s, a large number of immigrants from the Middle East (especially Yemen), India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal, and Southeastern Europe (especially Bosnia and Herzegovina) have moved to the city, making it more ethnically diverse than ever before.

The city is home to the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Lions, and the University of Michigan at Detroit. It is also the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, which was founded in 1875. It was named after the city's founder, William "Bill" Hamtamck, who was born in the city in 1872. It has a population of 3,000 (3,000 per cent of its area) and is the second-largest city in the state of Michigan. It also has the third-largest population in the United States, after Detroit and Macomb County, Michigan, with 3,100 per cent and 3,200 per cent, respectively. Its population is about 2,700 (2,700 per cent) and 2,800 (1,800 per cent), respectively. It had a population boom in the 1950s and 1960s, when it was the largest city in Michigan. Its current population is around 3,500 (2.7 million). It is located on the Detroit River, which runs through the city.

Culture

Hamtramck flourished from 1910 to 1920 as thousands of European immigrants, particularly Poles, were attracted by the growing automobile industry. The city has grown increasingly ethnically diverse but still bears many reminders of its Polish ancestry in family names, street names and businesses. A recent survey found 26 native languages spoken by Hamtamck schoolchildren. In May 2003, Maxim Blender selected Hamtramack as the second "Most Rock N' Roll City" in the U.S., behind Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York City. In January 2004, members of the Al-Islah Islamic Center requested permission to use loudspeakers for the purpose of broadcasting the Islamic call to prayer. This request set off a contentious debate in the city, about the noise that would be caused by the call to Prayer, eventually garnering national attention. In 2011, almost 200 bands played the Blowout at 14 venues over four days. On Pczki Day, several local bars host parties with live entertainment and free pczki. On Tusty Wtorek (Fat Tuesday) people line up at the city's numerous Polish bakeries to purchase pczkis.

The post office annex is located in the City of Detroit at 14600 Dequindre Street. In December 2010, citing general budget woes and the city of Detroit withholding a portion of shared revenue for the Detroit/Hamtramcks Assembly plant straddling the border of both cities, HamtAMck requested that the State of Michigan allow it to declare bankruptcy. Receivership was avoided when a deal was struck between the city and Detroit which required Detroit to pay $3.2 million in collected taxes to Hamthamck in exchange for Hamtcamck paying Detroit nearly the same amount for a water and sewage bill that was in arrears. In March 2019, the plant will be retooled as Factory ZERO for 2021 Hummer EV by GMC. The former facility has been demolished. As of February 2014, most of the 1.9 million-square-foot former facility have been demolished and replaced with a parking lot.
