Rush’s northwest side neighborhood is one of the most stable in Detroit. Most houses are brick and the properties are well-kept. But several miles to the east on Robinwood, the heaviest fire damage was to vacant houses already in poor condition.
Some houses are separated by vacant lots where homes once stood. The neighborhood is among Detroit’s most desperate.
