Thanks for the photos! I was recently talking to someone from Illinois who works for the EPA and was recently in Flint. He had nothing but positive things to say about downtown and said he was surprised at how lively and intact it was. We brought up how Gary, Indiana and Flint have faced many similar obstacles - falling from a high of 200k to just under 100k now, the loss of industrial jobs, etc - and how Flint is miles ahead of Gary in terms of revitalization.

I think anyone who has never been to Flint would be pleasantly surprised at downtown's appearance.
