A Flint author, proud of the birthplace of General Motors and the city where he grew up, is helping a group of people hoping to demolish an eyesore in their neighborhood.

Gordon Young has started this Indiegogo page, hoping to "crowdfund" the demolition of 6608 Parkbelt -- a burned out, abandoned home in an otherwise thriving neighborhood. The group hopes to raise $10,000 toward the cause.

Take a tour of the neighborhood with Young, in the first video below. NBC-25 has more on the story in the second video.

You can contribute to Young's effort here.
