Barbara Corcoran ( From the tv show Shark Tank ) was a guest on todays The View on ABC ... Barbara made her fortune in real estate and mentioned Grand Rapids as a great place to buy a home , good schools etc. followed by a city in Arizona (but who cares about them , GR was mentioned first lol )

toward the end of the show

The View Season 16 Episode 9 | Full TV Episode Online - ABC.com

At one time G.R. was a good place.. but that was before the 2004 recession took hold and the 2008 depression hit us.. It will be awhile until we again, become a good place to buy a home and raise a family..

We have had a lot of debris come into the area lately and it all has to be moved out..

A depression... seriously? You've got to be kidding me.

Are you referring to Hurricane Sandy? I'm guessing not.

I means a lot of low life from Detroit, and illegals, and gang activity that never existed, or if it did, was kept to a small area of town.. Now you have huge sections that are that way.

There are still areas that are good, but it is no longer the safe city it once was.

Wait. I thought most people believe that GR has gotten nicer in the last 10-20 years? How can that be if gangs are running rampant?
