What Bert Has To Say About Detroit-Warren-Dearborn Metro Area

Detroit’s seemingly endless grid-patterned suburbs spread mainly west of town, and the northern half of this suburban cluster has been split off of the formerly singular Detroit metro area. That northern half consists of the relatively new and prosperous suburbs spreading north into Oakland County, including not only the named places of Warren, Troy and Farmington Hills but also such familiar names as Southfield, Pontiac, Royal Oak, Auburn Hills and Bloomfield. These suburbs, located on once-agricultural land, are plain, business friendly and mostly family friendly.
