1. A neighborhood in Southwest Detroit, located south of the Ambassador bridge between Fort street and the Detroit River near Zug Island. Delray formerly was a suburb of Detroit until it was annexed by the city in 1905. Soon after, it became a major industrial center surrounded by residential homes. As time progressed, many industrial jobs began to leave Southeast Michigan, and as a result, so did many of the residents of Delray. It has collapsed into a heavily impoverished, polluted area which many Detroit leaders have hoped to completely industrialize. The air in Delray is rated the most polluted in the entire state of Michigan. Many houses in Delray are assessed at near only $3,000-5000.
Think yoga studios, coffee shops, and young married couples with dogs. Pretends to be a small town. Has some kind of street festival like every weekend.
