Would the 1990 You Even Recognize This As Downtown Kalamazoo?
It took me a little bit to figure out what I was looking at. I guess that where living here for over 35 years is both good and bad. I've gotten used to the way Kalamazoo looked because it's been that way for so long. That the photo above does remind us just how much has changed recently (as in the past decade).
