That's absolutely the most perfect tag line for this photo Gordon! Now you've got me wondering what else you caught a glimpse of on your last visit.
I have to say, Dave, that this was one of the most unexpected things I've seen in Flint in a while.
My grandparents lived on Jane....475 now runs over where their beautiful old home stood.
I used to play at the 475 construction site with my pals from St. Mary's, probably near your grandparents house. That highway and the other highway projects needlessly took out a lot of homes and many memories, in my opinion.
There is a block on Jane St. where there are no houses.
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.
