East Hills

The city’s East Hills area has one of Grand Rapids’ most distinct personalities. East Hills is made up of seven sub-neighborhoods and three commercial districts: Fulton East Business District, East Hills Business Association, and Wealthy Business Association. It is located south of Fulton Street, west of Fuller Avenue, north of Wealthy Street, and east of Union Avenue. Because it is located in the heart of the Midtown, Eastown, Baxter, and Heritage Hill communities, East Hills has been nicknamed “the center of the universe.” The majority of the East Hills neighborhood was constructed in the late 1800s when it was mostly orchards and farms. The city of Grand Rapids was affected by the industrial revolution and the huge immigration of Europeans in the late 1800s. Many of these ethnic groups lived in the city’s East Hills neighborhood, which was easily accessible thanks to the tram. East Hills has seen great expansion since 2004, with the addition of new businesses, restaurants, breweries, pubs, and coffee shops in its three commercial areas of East Fulton, East Hills, and Wealthy Street. East Hills, immediately east of the city center, has a diverse range of cafes, boutique boutiques, and art galleries. Although it is possible to get a sense of the district’s flavor and charm by just wandering around neighborhood sidewalks and greeting casual conservations. East Hills is known for having a unique blend of racial variety, creative inventiveness, and a fiery civic spirit. Whether it’s the ancient DA Blodgett building’s Corinthian columns or the red brick pavers bordering Wealthy Street, the area is keeping visible links to its rich history among a bustle of new development. The Wealthy Theater Historic District, the Cherry Hill Historic District, and the Fairmount Square Historic District are also included in East Hills. This preservation of the majority of the neighborhood has resulted in a lot of architectural character and continuity, as well as a sense of community pride. While the history and description of the area are essential, we recognize that you want to know where the best food and drink are. Marie Catrib’s for the healthier Mediterranean fare; Brick Road Pizza Company for vegan-friendly garlicky Italian entrees; Cherie Inn for long-standing, great French-inspired breakfast; Donkey Taqueria for fire-roasted Mexican goodness; Electric Cheetah for experimental, quirky food combinations that work; Grove for some of the best dinner Grand Rapids has to offer; Jonny B’z for hot dogs that rival Yesterdog; The Greenwell for gastropub classics; and Uncle Cheetah’s for delicious and heartwarming soups. East Hills is home to a diverse range of locally owned and operated companies. Art Of The Table – a gourmet shop with cheeses, sweets, and beverages, Metal Art Studio – a fine jewelry store, Lee & Birch – a women’s clothing and accessories store, Le Bon Macaron – a macaron shop, and The Counting House – furniture, decor, clothing, and accessories store, are just a few of our favorites. Gather your family and friends at Cherry Park to enjoy the playground, splash pad, and basketball court, or get some ice cream and take a stroll through the park. Kula Yoga offers yoga classes. At LaFontSee Galleries, be awestruck by the stunning artwork. Bellydance Grand Rapids offers belly dancing classes.
