I've recently come across some houses for rent (4-plexes and flats) in Grosse Pointe Park. They're located on a few streets: Nottingham, Beaconsfield, and a few others. Wondering if this is still considered a "nice, safe area" among the Detroit suburbs. Thanks.

Most definitely a nice, safe area. I talk to a few officers and Lt's from that department on a frequent basis, they're doing fine. Their biggest problem is stolen cars near the border, mainly Chrysler vehicles. Other then that, you're good. Small city, average of 6 cops on the road at once. Great police service.

All of the Pointes are police patrolled like crazy. One time I was driving from downtown Detroit to St. Clair Shores and wanted to take Jefferson and Lakeview becuase of the view and when I was in the Pointes at least 4 or 5 police cars drove past or by me.

I used to live on Wayburn (Detroit side) for over 2 years and never had an issue. We used to call the police the border patrol. If I ever move back the Michigan, I'll head right back the park. /I miss Ye Olde Tap Room!

thanks for the responses! so, even the houses that are 4-plexes or have flats, are in a good area within this area? i've heard from a few people that there is a border of Grosse Pointe Park that may not be in a good part of town???

If you are renting you are fine. As the others stated there is a strong police presence, just need to make sure you keep your car doors locked and not leave your ipod sitting out and otherwise you will be fine! Not sure your age or situation, but I lived in that area (they call it the "cabbage patch" )in my 20's and had a great time. Walking distance to quite a few bars and restaurants.

I personally don't like it. I think the part of Detroit that it borders is pretty neglected by the Detroit Police. I've seen more gang **** out that way than I have in midtown. My brother lived there for about 3 months and was contacted by police at least twice asking if he'd seen or heard anything regarding shootings in the area. He was right on the border on Wayburn and Kercheval. It's an alright neighborhood. The Grosse Pointe's kinda creep me out though.
