WELCOME to the North of Grand Neighborhood Web site! We are an active neighborhood just west of downtown Des Moines, Iowa, located between 31st and 42nd streets; Grand Avenue and I-235.

We even have a local band named after us, and if you’re looking for them, you can find them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/northofgrand.



Official North Of Grand T-Shirts are now available for purchase! NOG t-shirts are a great way to promote our neighborhood association. Small, medium, and large t-shirts are $18; $20 for extra large.

The shirts are grey in color and are made by American Apparel which means high quality and less likely to fade or shrink. Contact Justin Gross at justingross2@gmail.com with any questions. Select size below and click “Buy Now” to complete secure payment through PayPal.
