I was on my way back to Ann Arbor, so I figured for once I'd stop and take some pictures of downtown Flint. Unfortunately, it was getting late, my camera was set on auto, and the roads were icy. So I was in constant motion taking these pictures. I figured to make them post-worthy, they would need to be photoshopped a bit. Especially the blurry ones. Hope you enjoy.

Genesee Towers looms in the distance. A sign beneath it warns of falling concrete.

Looking back towards the city center. The vacant, but soon to be renovated (hopefully) Durant hotel stands to the left. A massive hole is visible in the center of downtown when planners once though surface parking would bring success.

Thanks Ian. Flint has a lot of potential, hopefully they get started on the Durant Hotel soon.

I get better vibes in Flint than I do in Saginaw. I don't know, UofM really needs a kick in the pants to jump start some "sense of place" projects in downtown. Saginaw Street has seen some amazing progress though, and that's exciting to see!

I'm going to have to make an extensive visit to the city once it gets to at least -10 outside.

Drove through downtown today. I was pleasantly surprised. Sunny, cold and clear- The Mott Building looked especially nice today.
