Driving through here has some bittersweet memories. This was my first home from Detroit. The former Meadowdale Apartments-later Meadowdale Condominiums-in Clinton Township. I drove through here and it’s a ghost town in this part of Clinton. And where I resided was at the foot of Gratiot Ave when it divided into two separate streets. Once Parkway Chrysler-Jeep left the neighbourhood, it dried up. Tried to visit some of my old neighbors, and they’ve all moved away.

A sad sight to see, literally. In recent years, I’ve expressed a strong desire to move back, but certain parts of Clinton has declined this past decade. Perhaps it was a good thing that I left after all! Really sad though…
