"Pretty diverse neighborhood bordering the Grosse Pointe Area"

Overall the entire neighborhood here, right in the Gross Pointe area is nice, but it can be a mixed bag. Like on some streets like Bishop you can find some nice, modest, brick bungalow style homes. And then in other parts of the neighborhood like Outer Drive, you find towering stately brick homes that are two-story and expensive looking. But overall the entire residential area is very well kept up and clean. The houses don't have that cookie cutter feeling that you get when looking at suburban neighborhoods. There is plenty of unique architecture here.

I do believe there is a home owner's association here, and it wouldn't surprise me because most of the really nice areas have strong ones. There are also plenty of quality public and private schools in the area, which is a bonus for families with young kids.

The main roads in this neighborhood are Cadieux, Warren, and Mack. Surprisingly, there are quite a few fast food outlets in this area, which you usually see in the poorer areas. There is also plenty of public transportation on the main thoroughfares, and of course I-94 is right there, which can take you right into downtown Detroit.

Overall I love the charm, design, and upkeep of this area, and it's not far from the water. I'd live here, definitely.

"Small But Gorgeous Area of Town"

Bordering up to Grosse Pointe which happens to be one of the most affluent areas in Michigan, this is a fabulous community. It is small but the homes here are beautiful. You can see just riding down the street that these homes are in a different categoryt than some of the nearby communities.

The tree lined streets lead up to a nice offering of homes and though many are very elaborate, some are a bit more modest. This is an area of town where you need some money to find the right housing. It is located within the Detroit area but that is mroe associated with nearby Grosse Pointe than with the city as a whole.

It is close enough to the waterfront that it offers a feature in and of itself. It is smaller than other communities but that may add to its allure. It's a great community to be a part of but expect to pay more and to have a few less amenities than larger areas of its kind.
Pros
  • More Affluent Area
  • Beautiful Homes
  • Close to Nice Neighborhoods

  • Smaller Area of Town
