"Extremely busy side-street"

I lived on this street for most of my life. I've grown to love and hate things about it.

The plus side is that there is an elementary school only two blocks away. My parents didn't need to make travel arrangements for me, since I could walk to or from school in five minutes.

It's also a major bus route for both the Jr. Highs and High School in the city. No matter which Jr. High you attend, you'll only have to walk a block to a bus stop.

One thing I did not like is that because there is a party store at the corner of O'neil and Martin road, there is a lot of foot and car traffic all during the day and into the night. When it's rowdy customers, you may know it.

Otherwise the neighborhood is generally quiet, and people keep to themselves.

"The Road to Everywhere"

Martin Road stretches from the edge of the lake on Jefferson all the way to the city of Warren. Though it is more residential the closer to the lake, it becomes a four (or three and 1/2?) lane "avenue" the rest of the way.

Living on Martin is difficult because of the traffic. Turning into or backing out of your own driveway can become a chore during rush-hours. Large churches, Roseville Junior High and Macomb Community College, and Gratiot avenue, one of the busiest streets in Michigan, add greatly to the traffic on this street.

Some of the oldest and most beautiful homes in Roseville are also located on this street. Though some may find Gratiot Avenue a burden, I find it a blessing; This road gives Roseville much-needed retail space, where classic record stores, artist studios, bookstores, and just about every restaurant known to man have a place to do their business.

With cost of living being so low, this street in particular would be a great choice for someone to get a fresh start, or their very first start!
