    Remember Mr. Roger’s “It’s a Beautiful Day in This Neighborhood”. He must have been talking about either the near West side or Southeast side Not much difference.

      This is Eddie Murphy’s version,from SNL–“Mr.Robinson’s ‘Hood”.
      These items i will list are true:
      20 years ago,no blacks lived on the West Side=No shootings then.
      Now,I’d estimate,since 2005 a geometric increase to at least 20%,some neighborhoods much more.Hamilton,Sixth,Alpine,the Stocking area-either side for blocks.Lexington,Straight,Watson.Alpine from Leonard either direction is as bad as any street in Southeast GR.Stocking school opening up for the minorities to go to,was a turning point in speeding up the decline of the West side.
      And now the results of the city of Grand Rapids,letting this happen is in:Shootings every day,drive-bys,houses filled with gunfire on a regular basis.So the George Heartwell/Bliss initiative to push diversity is now in full bloom.
      The Grand Rapids–as we knew it–is DOA.
      It can be fixed,but it appears Bliss would rather add low income housing to the Stocking area.The wrong move for sure.These people add nothing to the area,but crime.Learn from Detroit.Knock down houses and bulldoze a large swath of the city–and rebuild.It’s the only way.
