Flint Photos: Downtown from the Durant Hotel

A view of downtown from the 6th floor of the Durant Hotel. More Durant rehab photos coming soon.


  1. I was just in Flint on June 26th. It looked to me like the street was still blocked off with bulldozers and stuff in front. I only came into Flint because I wanted to see this hotel done. So when will it be done?

  2. That is a damn good picture of downtown from the Durant!

  3. I love this picture and I'm so glad they're restoring the Durant. The previous pictures of downtown Flint in 40's I believe was the year I was born 1947 because I remember my mom telling me about that night. I was her first : ) Thanks


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
