"Roseville – Retirees Moved to Florida and the City Went Downhill"

Roseville – Retirees Moved to Florida and the City Went Downhill

It frustrates me beyond belief to write a review of Roseville because this is a place I visited often as a child as my grandparents lived nearby in St. Clair Shores. Many years ago, Roseville was actually pretty nice. It is a city, filled with countless neighborhoods of single-level brick houses and tree-lined streets. I remember playing putt-putt golf here with my grandmother and going to the mall. Roseville was a place where most residents lived for decades and raised families. Then, it seemed as though everyone ages, retired, moved to Florida and slowly these neighborhoods started deteriorating.

Quite honestly, Roseville has nothing to offer residents today except a horrible school district, potholes big enough to swallow a car and an endless supply of crime. You are surrounded by Eastpointe, Warren and Fraser; all throw away cities in my opinion.

There are a few parks, none of which are maintained. About the only plus side to Roseville is that it is 2 miles from Macomb Community College, so it is not a bad place to find affordable housing, if you are a student. That being said, I would definitely recommend a roommate. The crime rate is ridiculous. In addition to several hundred auto thefts, burglaries and assaults per year, Roseville sees more than its fair share of rapes and murders. If you need to live in this area, I would recommend north parts of Warren instead, which puts you on the border of Sterling Heights. You can still find affordable housing, but it’s not such a dangerous and run down area.
