East Hills - Cherry Hill



With seven distinct neighborhoods, three thriving business strips, and three of the city's five historic districts, East Hills is Grand Rapids' undisputed Center of the Universe.

 

Located just east of the central city, East Hills offers a wide selection of eateries, boutique shops, and art galleries. Although the flavor and character of the district is perhaps best experienced by simply strolling neighborhood sidewalks and welcoming chance conservations.

 

Defined by kindness and courage, East Hills is celebrated for its unique mix of racial diversity, artistic creativity, and blazing civic spirit. And whether it's the Corinthian columns of the historic DA Blodgett building or the red brick pavers lining Wealthy Street, the neighborhood also is maintaining clear connections to rich its past amidst a flurry of modern development.
