Areas like Roosevelt Park remind me of Chicago neighborhoods like Bucktown. Great old buildings, beautiful housing stock, incredible views of Downtown, and ethnic pockets. Bucktown, five years ago is nothing like what it is today. I have five sisters and since I was in high school, I've always had at least two sisters living in Chicago.

Oh.... my aching heart, soo many central areas in GR are just waiting, saying "hello, I'm ready to be fixed up." Though, I recently was in Detroit speaking at a conference and I stayed over night at the Hotel Pontchartrain. At 6pm I was walking around and I saw maybe six people on the street and the beautiful buildings were crying.

Once a week, most of my office goes out for lunch and currently we are on our "Latin Tour". I suggest trying out Cancun Restaurant at 1518 Grandville Ave SW.

Go, Go Grandville Avenue!
