Local Reviews

If you like bars, it's a great place. I don't so it's awful and there is never parking, often causing you to park away of ileagally in hopes you can move your car to a spot that's more conveinient

Near downtown; many cultural activities nearby. There is a good variety of dining options. Generally a clean neighborhood. Good public transit options nearby

My favorite place to live is near a bar. I love pubs. I go to pubs and drink with my friends. And eat at a nearby restaurant.

Historic neighborhood, some commerical and local places of businesses. I like the Greek resturant, its my favorite.

It's very close to a lot of bars and restaurants. There are a lot of new apartment complexes which give it a good visual appeal.

Restaurants, bars and shops are quite near. Michigan lake is very near to my residence where i can take my family and friend for a walk;One can enjoy the lake charm and can spend hours there
