The New Center area is historical district in Detroit about three miles north of downtown that was established in the 1920s as more of a link to the business community in the city. The New Center area was the link between the downtown business and the manufacturing factories that were scattered about the city. Today, the New Center area is full of life, with residential housing, great restaurants, bars/pubs, and even a newly designed park space. There are also many government buildings housed in the New Center, along with offices for many commercial businesses. The Fisher Theatre, Henry Ford Hospital, and the St Regis Detroit are all located in New Center also. The New Center area is still alive and has become a hub in Detroit for both culture and business.
