This Wiki is far from complete so please add to it!

The main Jewish Community is located in Oak Park/Southfield.
There are other smaller parts in the Young Israel of Southfield neighborhood and also West Bloomfield.
Getting there:
Best option: 7.5k avios from LGA/PHL
10k UA from EWR
Or DL 12.5k, sometimes 7.5k
Often there are cheap paid fares on Frontier from Trenton(TTN)
Or ACY on spirit
It's 10 hours drive from NYC & 9+ from Lakewood.
If renting a oneway from hertz, drop at centerline, MI.

Where to stay:
People are very hospitable!
There are no hotels within walking distance to the main Jewish community.
The Westin in Southfield isn't far by car.
The airport Sheraton is now a Cat 1.

Where to eat:

Prime10 is centrally located, and probably the best kosher flayshigs in Detroit.
They have a decent lunch special. Expect to pay $35 plus per person.

Kravings is a very solid, centrally located burger/sandwich/sushi/shabbos takeout place.
They are open Thursday nights until 1ish with Cholent.
Meals start at around $10.

Sara's in the oak park JCC, very solid deli the oak park JCC is (permanently) closed, and so is Sara's.

Dave's is currently closed.

Jerusalem Pizza has plenty of specialty pizzas.
Their regular pies are thick and smallish.
They also offer a "New York style" pie.
They have plenty of calzones. Bread sticks/cheese sticks are a must.
Order by phone if youre in a rush as they usually take 15mins to get you your pizza.
They also have a branch in the West Bloomfield JCC.

the soul cafe in west bloomfield is a nice dairy place a bit more upscale then the rest
One Stop supermarket also sells take-out pizza inside their store.

Gold N Greens is in the Wayne County Cafeteria. They are only open when college is in session.
They are not Cholov Yisroel. It costs about $8 for all you can eat: pizza, bread sticks, soy stuff, salads, desserts, soft ice cream, sodas, chocolate milk, OJ... Kids 5& under are free. 6-12 is $4.

Zemans bakery is centrally located and is very solid.
Dunkin Donuts/baskin Robbins is kosher and also centrally located.

Driving from Traverse City to Detroit tomorrow, looking for something to do to break up the drive.
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.
