The City of Grosse Pointe is appreciated for its convenient central location. Here you will find “the Village”, a shopping area of one-of-a-kind specialty stores, a large bookstore, gourmet grocers market, coffee and ice cream shops, restaurants, and hardware and drugstores. During the summer, concerts, fine art shows, and sidewalk sales take place in “the Village”. The nearby Neighborhood Club offers classes in sports, hobbies and recreation to all Grosse Pointe residents. Homes here vary in size and style from small quaint “farmhouses” to larger family homes.
