In 1891, Detroit Mayor Hazen S. Pingree approved the beginning of construction on a "Grand Boulevard" that would circle the city. That same year, the city of Detroit annexed a part of Hamtramck.
These two acts by the city of Detroit would create two important neighborhoods - the New Center and the North End.
Both of these neighborhoods are among the most historically significant in the city of Detroit, especially in Detroit's Black History.
