Downtown Wyandotte is full of small retail and restaurants/bars, mostly along or branching off of Jefferson Avenue. They have a great Third Fridays event which brings a lot of people downtown for the night, but it is an area that is doing well. There aren't many vacant storefronts and it is just hip enough to bring in a young crowd without scaring off older customers.
On a somewhat negative note, I was surprised to find out that the city's population has actually declined by about 9% since 2000, currently at about 25,500 people (as of 2012). Since I can see visible signs of the city being better than in 2000, and had no idea there was a population decline, this took me aback. I even went to several sources to make sure it was true. It is.

As for the housing stock, the median value of homes there is around $110,000 (don't forget that Michigan is much more affordable than California or New York or most of the country in general). There are a good amount of multi-family units, especially duplexes and triplexes. Real estate investors are looking at a healthy environment for flipping or rental units.
