Flint - College/Cultural Neighborhood

Located on the city's middle east side, the College/Cultural area (also known as East Village) is probably Flint's most stable neighborhood. It is home to the Flint Cultural Center and Mott Community College, as well as the Applewood Estate - the home of the late C.S. and Ruth Mott (I'll get pictures of Applewood at a later time). Flint Central High School and Whittier Classical Academy are also located here.











Gilkey Creek runs on the southern and western borders of the neighborhood












The closet thing you'll find to blight - fire damage

The only retail in the neighborhood







A few mansions:

Longway Planetarium and part of Bower Theatre


Bower Theatre - home to the Flint Youth Theatre


The Whiting - Flint's main auditorium (not pretty on the outside, but nice inside)


Sarvis Conference Center


Buick Gallery and Research Center



On my way home, I pass by the few apartment buildings in the neighborhood
