It was home of a Michigan National Guard rifle range in the teens/twenties:

Not so much a home, but it was the main thoroughfare (and Balfour) for them to exit in and out the rifle range.

I'm re-habing a home in the 4000 block. Looking for some info on the neighborhood. They're some beautiful homes around there.

I love those old houses. I have done and still do a lot of work in Grosse Pointe Park and Farms area. Some of those homes have great plaster details.

1010 Buckingham was my favorite,the home of the late Judge Thomas J. Murphy, CJ of the Wayne County Circuit Court and his wonderful family, one of whom married my brother in '59. Lots of good family times and memories down there in GPP. Lovely street.

Thinking of re-habing a home on Mapleview St. which is off of Gratiot and 7-mile. Any stories about that street. Another beautiful home. Shaky neighborhood?

Depends on which side of 7 Mile. The neighborhood is so-so, but one side is worser than the other (the southside of 7 Mile is the worst).

Actually there is a MApleview street BuyAmerican between Eastwood and Lappin one block east of Schoenherr. On 7 Mile, its the street with a Coin Laundry, Beauty Salon, back of CVS, and Apartment building on it. I think I saw the house you were talking about Eastsideinvestor, and it is a nice home.

Eastside: Are you rehabbing and selling, or renting. Have you completed other rehabs already? Just curious here - I'm sure we all love to hear of any rehabbing in the city.

I had relatives on Buckingham but I need to look up the address. It was several blocks off of Mack on the D side. They moved there I guess right before the WW2 from Heidelberg Street. They moved out 92 or so because the house had been broken into about 5 times in one year.

I'm re-habing and renting. I have 2 going right now. I live in Florida but love the city. If you take a look around, there is a site dumpster in almost every neighborhood along with out of state investors like myself.

Patrick, I'm curious...I haven't lived in Michigan in a long time. If someone breaks into your house, can you just shoot 'em?

They've got a bill on the governor's desk here in Texas that says if some one sets one foot in your house by force you can blast 'em. Not only will you not be prosecuted, but they'll probably throw you a party at the Astrodome with ZZ Top.

God Bless Texas Eastsidedame, but I think that is a topic for another thread. Good info Mikem. I learned something new today.

Gee, Bulletmagnet, is is really? I read Patrick's relatives got broken into 5 times.

When I read phrases like "shaky neighborhood" in a thread, I just wonder who the shaky one would be if they were facing the business end of a shotgun.

I just feel passionate about my beloved east side, born and raised there. WSU grad, too. Hate to see it anything but the great place to live as I knew it. Just wondered if any legal eagles were on board who knew the law, that's all.

BTW, God Bless You right back.
