  2. I'm betting it's the Paterson Building -- NE corner of Saginaw and Third Street. First photo is front facade. Second is around the corner on Third with church spire reflected in windows.

  3. The ornamentation on some of the old buildings downtown is fantastic - and so are these pics!

  5. This is the Paterson Building. It has been in the Collison family for years. All of the teracoda was painted two years ago. For better pictures and info on the Paterson Buiding go to

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.
