We have a tendency to brace ourselves for the worst when someone offers a review of Flint. So we were delighted when Ryan Kim shared his video assessment of the Vehicle City, spotlighting not only some great businesses, but talking up the 'awesome Americans' who populate our city.

Kim, dubbed 'America's Best Friend,' enjoys soaking up local flavor and culture throughout the country, and was able to find plenty of positives in Flint, despite the ongoing water crisis.

"I think I speake for the people of Flint when I say, 'The water crisis does not define their lives.'"

Flint Crepe Co., Tenacity Brewing, Vehicle City Tacos, and Factory Two all get props in the video below.
