Oldest neighborhood: Corktown (c. 1840s)
    
    Irish immigrants fleeing the Great Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s settled in Corktown, named after County Cork, Ireland, which is now Detroit’s oldest extant neighborhood. By coincidence, Henry Ford’s ancestors were from Ireland, and now the Ford Motor Co. is redeveloping the massive Michigan Central Station near Corktown to serve as a new laboratory for electric and autonomous vehicles.
