Don't move here guys and girls!!! The police here act like SWAT teams, they will pull you over for anything, and search your car for no reason! If you have even 1 tiny dose of any drug they will call backup on you and treat you like you are a terrorist, and stuck their guns in your face amd throw you ok the ground like an animal!!!!

And the jails here, I saw a girl who had her back BROKEN and they didn't even call ambulance, they left her on the cold concrete ground of her cell to suffer in pain for 2 days, while she is crying and begging for help, these cops are the most sick people I have ever met, and they are EVERYWHERE.

Most of the USA is like this now, police everywhere, cameras recording everything 24/7...I recommend for all in the USA to move and leave this country, I am saving my money currently to do so.

Also onr more thing: traffic in GR and all surrounding area is VERY BAD. At almost all times of day from 7am - 10pm! Even on freeway, is so slow that your car stops completely a lot.

If you are bothered by and traffic do not move here!

Hello,

Apartment price is off a bit. Is not so high, but is getting higher each month it seems, so maybe three prices will be correct soon.

1 bedroom prices is correct, but i don't think 3 bedroom is $2000 yet, more like $1700-1850.

These prices are crqzy though....is another housing BUBBLE...domt buy house right now guys..

The apartment rental prices are not this high. You can easily find basic places for $700 or so on the outskirts of GR. Hell, there are even a couple places left where you can get a 2-bedroom for $750.

I had a really nice duplex, totally renovated and looked great 2 bed, for $875 with partial utilities included a couple years ago. Last I heard it was raised to $950, but still a geat deal. It's maybe 2 miles from GR.

The above prices I find too low. And I've lived in Gr Rap for 40 yrs.

Grand Rapids has been named Beer City USA. There are many Micro Breweries. People here eat out very often, and there are more restaurants per mile than almost anywhere in the U.S. Many Steak houses, cultural and ethnic foods.
