John Cusack's character in Grosse Pointe Blank was a hit man and he had to go back to his high school reunion in his hometown of Grosse Pointe. Nobody at the reunion really believed that he was a hit man and thought he was just making a joke. Though the movie was fictional, it's not surprising that someone of one of the five similarly named Grosse Pointe communities would doubt someone was really a hit man because it's such a nice area.

Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Grosse Pointe Woods renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
