At least Rottweilers can enjoy the former site of Buick City. Carina, a Flint resident and blogger who writes Doggie musing and animalosities describes a dog walk at the most profound symbol of Flint's misfortune:
"Now there's weeds growing up between old bricks and concrete slab and 1960s industrial linoleum flooring. I trespass there with the dogs sometimes...these photos were from a grey early morning walk a few weeks ago.
"A very old part of the plant still stands - must date to the 1930s. Huge blackened brick buildings. I so want to go explore...but I have seen footprints in the snow leading over there. So, I think there is probably crack dealing and prostitution and squatting and all manner of people I probably don't want to meet while I'm by myself."
