Flint Photos: Winter on Maxine Street by Jan Worth-Nelson

Thanks to Jan Worth-Nelson for this portrait of Flint in winter.


  1. This is beautiful. I wish I could remember where Maxine St is located. It sounds familiar.

  2. It's in the College Cultural Neighborhood between Blanchard and Beard. This shot looks north toward Court Street between Linwood and Calumet. We've had a hard winter but this particular afternoon was quite magical.

  3. Jan, Good to see your moving photo. I have recollections, albeit from Flint's NW side, of stunning winter scenes similar to yours.


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
