Pictures are from last winter (burrrr!!!).


Flint's Woodcroft Estates neighborhood was founded in 1925, and was home to many of the early automobile executives. Still home to the city's upper-class, Woodcroft is located on the southwest side of the city (area number 1 on the map), across the highway from the remaining GM factories and Bishop Airport.

The Carriagetown Neighboorhood (area number 2 on the map) is adjacent to the northwest side of downtown Flint. It's name comes from the fact that it was home to the Durant-Dort Carriage company, which would later turn into General Motors. This neighboorhood has seen a significant amount of decline over the years, but it starting to reap the benefits of the downtown redevelopment that has been occuring in Flint, as well as an increase in demand for student housing at UM-Flint and Kettering University.
