Up and coming urban neighborhood. Close to everything. Grand Rapids is a great town. Minutes from the busiest shopping corridor. chick filet, Calvin campus and everything you could possibly want. Several great churches. Very diverse, lots of good neighbors.

My overall experience of my neighborhood seems to be getting better. Recently i have noticed how less crime has effected my neighborhood. Less crime is better than anything. I find it more calm and less movement going on in our neighborhood. i also noticed a lot more organizations from churches surrounding our neighborhood. I'm glad i grew up in this neighborhood.
The crime rate to my own personal oppinion has decreased dramatically compared to last year. Im glad things have changed . This summer wasnt as bad as the previous ones.
