It's only a short walk away from Michigan Stadium. Restaurants popular in this neighborhood include Sava’s, Taste Kitchen, and Neopapalis. There are also coffee shops like Espresso Royale, Black Diesel Coffee, and the Pastry Peddler Bakery & Cafe, as well as bars including The Gouge Bar, The Blue Leprechaun, and Good-Time Charley’s.

Best part is that it's close to Ross and not far from downtown. It can be noisy however on weekends and game days with surrounding undergrad parties (although that died down really quickly once it got cold)!

Very safe and secure neighborhood. There are a couple of frat houses across the street which get noisy only during the football games. Otherwise, excellent neighborhood and location.

There are several restaurants and the hardware store nearby which is very convenient. It's a close walk to Ross and not far from downtown. But, there are several frats in the area. The building is sheltered from the noise but you can still hear them from time to time.

Unfortunately also close to the fraternities that party ALL day on game day. Grocery stores are a drive or bus ride away, but bars and restaurants on State Street, Packard and South U are all walking distance which is really great.

It's not that bad. There are a lot of undergraduates in this area, there are some law students, too. It is generally very loud during football season, specifically on Saturdays. There is a good amount of street parking and the food in the area is quick, cheap, and not that bad.

It's a good location. It's about a 5 minute walk to Ross and a 10/15 walk Downtown. There are several take-out restaurants and bars in the area as well as a hardware store, so it's easy to run out and get things last-minute if needed. There are a fair number of undergrads/frats in the area and they can be noisy during weekend nights, but the building is positioned so that the noise is minimized.

My location is a short walk to Ross, which is especially nice in the winter, and feels very safe. Cons are there are a lot of undergrads and it can get a little loud on weekends. It is also far from downtown Ann Arbor, where many restaurants and stores are.

This neighborhood is where many frats are located so it can get noisy, especially in the fall with football season. However, there are many people around even late at night so you don't feel too unsafe walking around.
