Dupont Street Bus

I was headed to my old street — Bassett Place — when I passed the stop at Dupont and Hamilton where I used to wait for the bus to take me to St. Mike's in 1st and 2nd grade. I moved to the other side of the street to take the bus the other direction in high school. All the traffic lights were out the day I took this photo, which made for some exciting driving adventures down memory lane.


  1. I lived on the south east corner of Odette and Iroquios. My mom still lived there until she died this past January. Now my brother squats there as the bank/city forecloses. The house is falling apart. My brother forced my mom into taking a mortgage on it 15 years after it was paid off. We find out after she dies. Isn't family grand??

  2. Rand, traffic lights is what I meant. Thanks for the clarification. I went in and changed it.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. 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
