Great lakefront neighborhood

Nettie R
Just moved there a year ago and love it. The people are all friendly with several left from the steel days offering interesting tidbits of neighborhood history. Others came for affordable lakefront property, with easy downtown commute and not all the traffic. The neighborhood still needs to work on the many scattered vacant homes and lots. The Bush seems up to the task as Neighbors do periodic volunteer cleanups, and landscaping with the help of a community garden.
