With the zoo in its backyard, tree-lined neighborhoods, and close proximity to Detroit, Huntington Woods ranks alongside Englewood, CA and Haworth, NJ for the tops in near urban suburban living.
"No. 10 on the list is this Detroit suburb, also known as the "City of Homes," which was established in the early 1920s. One of the original developers was inspired by a trip to Huntingdon, England, and as a result, the streets and many historic homes have a distinctly British flavor. That also is reflected in street names such as York, Hereford, Huntington, Salem and Dundee."
