The greater Lansing area is a place that is caught between two identities. On one side it has a strong and entrenched blue collar culture. A town that is striving to have its residents live the American dream reminiscent of the 1950’s and 60’s. Driving through the green landscape you can see the iconic Quality Diary shops every few miles, constantly pulling our minds back to Lansing’s local small town roots. Signs of former manufacturing and industrial success can be seen across the landscape. Empty factories once formerly filled with Lansing residence hard at work on the next General Motors creation, are now emptied by the changing economic climate.
