    yeah and Greenwood Indiana is south of Indianapolis.

    I still live on the south side of Indianapolis.

    every city has a southern most point, which is the south part of the city.

    There is a “south Detroit”. Again...south is just a direction. Directions don’t exist or not exist because there is something further beyond in the same direction.

    & then there's that great ode to not being able to find your car keys by that Hewson fellow. no more than 4 chords, & a 4 note bass-line, only made tolerable, IF one can stand the singer.

    Yeah, just extending the joke. Zug Island is the southern limit of Detroit. It's an old Indian burial ground turned industrial dump now home to iron works.

    I get the “joke” but every time someone brings up Don’t Stop Believing the comment section is full of people saying (often preceded by “fun fact”) “did you know there actually isn’t a south Detroit?” because they heard their local DJ say it when he was talking over the beginning of the song.

    Well, we're talking about the area where I grew up. I spent nearly every weekend of my youth seeing shows and galleries in Detroit. I had girlfriends in Detroit, and my older brother lives there now.
    When someone says "south Windsor" they're talking about the area south of the center of Windsor.
    There is no "south" of central Detroit.
    But hey, don't stop believin if that's the way you want it.

    South is a direction. That's all it is.

    What do you mean there is no "south Detroit"? Since you grew up there what do you call the direction that's opposite of north? I'm betting you call it "south" like the rest of us....despite having grown up in Detroit.

    How ridiculous do you have to be to argue a city doesn't have a south side lol? It's just a direction. Detroit has a northern border and a southern border....just like every other city.

    Detroit absolutely has a south side.....what you personally call it doesn't change how North, East, West and South work.

    I'm "ridiculous" am I? :rolleyes:
    Detroit's downtown is right on the water front.
    Nobody says "South Downtown Detroit" except some yokel from suburban Indianapolis who's about to walk into the river.
    If you stopped posting and looked at a map you might understand.

    That's like saying, "northeastern West Virginia." It confuses the hillbillies.

    Nobody says it because they don’t have time. They’re too busy telling everyone “fun fact: There is no
    South Detroit” because Detroit is the only place on Earth where the direction “south” doesn’t exist apparently.

    I was born in South Detroit...or was it in the back of a Greyhound bus rollin' down Highway 41? I can never remember . I was so young.

    But you have time to look at a map right?
    Can you understand maps?
    Or are you too busy telling people from Detroit there is a South Detroit?
    From the article you apparently didn't read:
    But check a map of Detroit and you won't find a place called "South Detroit." In fact, if you travel south from Detroit, you end up in another country. So if it's not technically in Detroit, where is South Detroit? Answer: it's Windsor, Ontario in Canada.

    What map actually says “south City-X” on a map lol?

    South (and stop me if you’ve heard this before) is just a direction. Every map I’ve ever seen has “N”, “S”, “E”
    and “W” on it.

    Detroit has a
    South side......that’s simply a fact. What you call it doesn’t change basic geography.

    Ah, so you don't understand maps.

    LOL, you didn't even read the article obviously.
    Your comprehension problems are not just limited to maps.

    Why announce that you're out? You already know and I don't care.

    And I understand maps just fine lol. That's how I know there's a south side to Detroit just like there's a south side to Detroit just like there's a south side to every city.

    Maps don't say "south Chicago" or "south NY" or "south Indianapolis" or "south Detroit" unless the city's actual name is "south Whatever".......but they do show directions so you can tell which side is the north side....east side....west side and .....south side.

    I don't get why you're so getting so bent out of shape over Detroit having a south side. Every city has a south side lol.
