Areas like Burke Acres on one side of the river are about as divided as the town gets. Basically, you just have to decide what you want on your street. For example, if you like museums you'll want to be near the Central Business District, as it's home to the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and the Kalamazoo Public Library. If you want to be near big business and education, Colony Farm is where you'll want to live, as it's near Western Michigan University's Business, Tech. and Research Park.
