BIG TROUBLE SMALL CITY- PART 1

(Muskegon) A small, but yet violent city crying out for answers. Big city shit exists here even though it’s a small city. Actually two cities; just divided by a single strip of railroad tracks. One of the cities, Muskegon, or what is known to the locals as “Downtown”, is home to just over 40,000 people, and Muskegon Heights, or “The Heights”, is home to just 10,000 people but as of late has become known as the most violent and poorest place in the state of Michigan rivaling cities on the national top 10 list like Flint and Detroit.
