"Only one real neighborhood here - and its awesome!"

When I worked for DTE Energy, my coworker Brian and I had occasion to come down here for a gathering at the Edison Boat Club as uninvited guests. So I got a good look at the area down here by the water.

The boat club is members only and we were only in the area on official business, but the place is awesome nonetheless. I love seeing expensive yachts on the river, it is so relaxing. The dining area in here is nice as well for the upper crust.

I bet a few of those guys and gals with the yachts lived in those estates right down near the water. Now that is somewhere I would live in a heartbeat. The homes are new, huge, brick in a clean and spacious neighborhood. The estates are private however and probably priced way too high for the average person.

So far I have gone on and on about the boat club and the estates, but this area is really dominated by the Chrysler Conner Assembly plant. I think they make Jeeps and Dodges here, and the plant and it's other little buildings take up most of this area, all the way up I-94. I imagine that most of the time, traffic on Conner and St. Jean Street is bad and noisy.

Living here, you are only a few miles from East Jefferson to the downtown area and all of its amenities. There is busing on East Jefferson as well for those who work at the Chrysler plant, as I don't think the guys with the yachts ride city buses. Despite the plant being here, I would love to live in those waterfront estates.
Pros
  • Great Amenities Nearby
  • Nice Area of Town
  • Waterfront Area
Cons
  • Traffic due to the plant may be excessive
  • May Be a Bit More Expensive Than Other Areas of Town

"A Great Area With Nice Features"

This is one of those areas of town that people would flock to if they knew about it. Somehow this community seems to be a well kept secret just inside the borders of Grosse Pointe Park. It is not only in and around the Grosse Pointe proper area, but it has some great features in and of itself.

It's really a small area of town as compared to others of its kind so it has that small town sort of feel. Thjough it may be small it offers great features such as nearby parks and trails, a great hospital, and some amenities like a great movie theater and some restaurants. You really can't go wrong here and yet you aren't paying the top price that you would in neighboring communities.

It is also right there near the waterfront and therefore you get a lot for your money. The cost of living may be a bit higher but it truly delivers in terms of what you get for that investment. This is a great area of town and one well worth checking out!
