"Eastpointe – A High Crime Area"

Some people will say that Eastpointe is worse than Detroit when it comes to crime. Sure, maybe there are not blocks of abandoned houses and thousands of unchained dogs running the streets, but Eastpointe is not the place to raise a family, that is for sure! Aside from numerous rapes and murders in the past couple years, there have been thousands of assaults, burglaries and car thefts. Although you can find some cheap housing, it’s really not worth it.

I-94 sits in your backyard, so commuting to Detroit, Southfield or any of the northern suburbs is easy. There is a mix of races here and over half the population is married. Interestingly, there are plenty of families with children in Eastpointe, along with 27 registered sex offenders! If that’s not enough to deter you away, this is a favorite place in Michigan for tornadoes. If you do need medical attention, there is a hospital four miles away however, it’s St. John’s, not necessarily a recommended facility.

Fortunately, if you want to head to a ballgame or one of the Detroit casinos or clubs, you’re minutes away. If you just need something to eat or drink, Eastpointe is a haven to the pizza delivery, Chinese restaurant or fast-food drive-thru lover. There are a multitude of dive bars all along Gratiot as well, but your car might not be in the parking lot when you get out.
