picture just cracks me up.
I spent a fair amount of time growing up in Ypsilanti,
and still have a fondness for the place. Anything that
promotes a positive image is welcome.
Somewhere, I saw a list that had been kept by a postman who made note
of alternative spellings for “Ypsilanti” that appeared on letters that
people sent. My favorite: Slippery Shanty.
Yspilanti’s main claim to fame is the water
tower. I am too prudish to post that
picture here, but you can follow the link if you want.
