Some fabulous homes. How far out from the centre of Detroit is this suburb?

These are really modest compared to what's on the lake shore nearby, you can see some here:

Grosse Pointe is pretty close to downtown Detroit, about 5 to 10 miles. It is beautiful but for me it is too close to some of the most crime-ridden parts of Detroit. This is a nice video of the community:

Jane, from what I understand, Grosse Point is not only occupied, but one of finest residential areas in the nation.

Oh yes, they are. The wealthy do not seem to be affected much by the crisis. I went a couple of weeks-ends ago on Lake Shore Dr. at night, and all of those houses had the lights turned on, and most were having cocktail parties
