Great neighborhoods and neighbors. The crap about gun violence and people on welfare points more to the previous poster's political feelings than anything based in reality. Maybe you are talking about Muskegon Heights which is decidedly NOT Roosevelt Park. The worst thing about the City is the City's management, council, city workers (administrative, not actual laborers) and the police department. The city will fine and fee you to death over anything. They will literally measure your grass with a ruler. Roads are absolutely awful. Flooded roads are quite common. Police have nothing to do so you often see them just driving around aimlessly or stopped in parking lots talking to each other. Nice place to live, just mismanaged.

The major issue with my area is crime and safety. Muskegon is unfortunately known for its gun violence. Schools do not seem to be improving test scores very well, and Muskegon Heights Public Academy schools continue to fail despite efforts. Although Muskegon has many flaws, it is a beautiful place. There are beaches everywhere, as well as thriving businesses (mostly already established) and many good residents. "Watch MUSkeGOn" is a great program--watch us go. I will continue to live in the Muskegon area once I am an established Pharmacist due to my family. If there was a way to force individuals to get jobs and not live off medicaid and the government, I think this place would be a lot better. I know that there are many families genuinely need these programs, even mine did for a few years, but unfortunately too many people in this area take advantage of the programs in an uneccessary way. If everyone in Muskegon, not just a select few, truly cared about how the roads looked as well as their homes and general area, it would be an extremely beautiful city.
Police will pull you over for just about anything rather than being on the lookout for real crime and criminals. In certain areas, people can get away with drug deals in broad daylight. However, there are many cops who are patrolling high crime area 24/7 and busting criminals on an everyday basis.
