Help us make Detroit’s neighborhood descriptions and city map right

Here’s how Detroit residents can help us create a comprehensive local guide
City map

Last year, we launched with a few things in mind: Communicating with Detroit residents about ongoing updates from city government, creating more media and content for and from Detroiters, and sharing our stories from the city with the world.

But above all, The Neighborhoods is a place where you can learn more about your neighborhood — or a neighborhood you’d like to call home someday. One of the more popular features of the site is the clickable citywide map, in which more than 200 neighborhoods across the city each have their own page that has descriptions of the area and key statistics, ranging from number of homes in the neighborhood to number of schools and parks, available for perusal.

Some neighborhoods, however, are missing descriptions. A handful of neighborhoods are missing pages altogether. We’ve also received feedback on neighborhood names and boundaries, or if neighborhood descriptions can be edited.

Event Info | Get Books By This Author


Writer, songwriter and local businessman Andy Gutman today announced the release of his children’s book, Even. The story, written in a lyrical style amidst vibrant illustrations, offers a sweet lesson in the eternal love and strong bond between a father and his daughter.

To introduce his book to the community at large and give parents an opportunity to spend quality time with their children, Gutman’s appearance at Honey Space features family-fun activities, including a reading of his new book, Even, and entertainment by a local musician, who will perform the companion songs from all three of Gutman’s books. Gutman also will sign copies of his books for attendees. There will be coloring activities and a photo booth for parents and their children to mark the special event. Fall-themed refreshments, such as cider and doughnuts, will be served.

Even is the third children’s book for Gutman and was inspired by his own relationship with his daughter, Riley. He also is the author of Charlie the Caterpillar and Pop Lullaby, and has written and produced numerous musical pieces. His children’s books were originally written as song and then transformed into books.

How to set up parental controls on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu

Welcome to Small Humans, an ongoing series at Mashable that looks at how to take care of – and deal with – the kids in your life. Because Dr. Spock is nice and all, but it’s 2018 and we have the entire internet to contend with.

Today’s video streaming services are absolutely amazing for children’s content, both educational and entertaining, but the savvy little monsters soon learn their way around an interface.

Before you know it, you’ll think you left your innocent toddler watching Wishenpoof and come back to find her staring wide-eyed at a fight scene in Ronja.

It’s important to understand how to set up your systems so that your precious poppets don’t see something they aren’t yet old enough to process.
