Flint Videos: Returning to the Eastside

UPDATE: The house featured in this video, located at 1635 Oklahoma Avenue, burned last night. Another house gone on the East Side.


  1. Thanks for posting my memories Gordon. Here's another that might interest you. I visited my Grandmothers old house when I was visiting a month ago. This one is very sad too. =(

  2. Irony-documenting the demise of Flint from the windows of a Hyundai.

  3. Hey, you need a reliable car in the Vehicle City...wouldn't want to break down.


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
