The West Grand neighborhood, in my opinion, has all you need for life within reach, especially with the construction of the new Meijer store happening. It has some great bars/breweries, corner groceries, ice cream, Richmond Park, churches, and many specialty and service stores for cars, computers, and more. The businesses and families moving into the area are improving life for everyone around.
