Grosse Pointe is an affluent coastal suburb that borders Detroit to the south at Alter Road and to the west at Mack Avenue, on a standard grid street plan which expands outward from Detroit city centre.  The real estate ranges from single and multi-family homes graduating to multimillion-dollar lakefront mansions which house auto barons such as the Ford family.  Grosse Pointe has its own top-rated public school system, community parks, marinas, pools, theaters, gyms, indoor and outdoor event spaces - all of which are only accessible to those whose permanent residence is in Grosse Pointe.
