DETROIT (WXYZ) - Dozens of Detroit residents will be opening their doors to strangers as hosts of Crain's House Party.
Suburban dwellers get a chance to visit homes in the city and experience what it's like to live there from the hosts of the party.
The 8th annual Crain's House Party is a collaboration between Crain's Detroit Business and the Michigan State Housing and Development Authority.
You'll be able to choose from six different tours that include an overview of the people, places and neighborhoods that make up Detroit's core including the Eastside, Lafayette Park, Corktown, Woodbridge, Midtown, and Downtown.
Kevin Morin lives above the Westin Book Cadillac and is one of the party's hosts.
"It's been five years and I wouldn't change a thing. Living above a hotel is a neat thing," says Morin.
Amy Haimerl is entrepreneurship editor at Crain's Detroit Business.
"The idea started as a way to bring the suburbs in Detroit - to show them that there is market rate housing and that there are people living here, making their lives here, investing and wanting to be in Detroit," says Haimerl.
Neil McEachern is also one of the party's hosts. He lives in Lafayette Park and will be opening his doors on Thursday as part of the Crain's House Party tour.
"I'm very proud of Lafayette Park and I'm proud of my home and I like showing it off," he says. "But you could go to any of those neighborhoods and meet people equally proud and committed to their neighborhood."
