  5. Yes, Dawn Donuts is still open; I was in there over the summer. Aside from donuts, you can get cigarettes and lotto too. Good luck on Clio Road after dark. It's a different animal, with lots of cruising and (sometimes) violence. What's Next got raided a few years back and everyone inside was arrested, and I'm quite surprised that it's open again.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
