Greg Borgman has a first-row seat to the pulse of Muskegon.


From his downtown home, he can watch the flurry of activity in Midtown—patrons immersing themselves in naan and records and burgers at places like Curry Kitchen and Third Coast Vinyl and Hamburger Mikey’s. He glimpses the bundled-up families exploring a winter-laden landscape: turn-of-the-century homes and apartment buildings and recently debuted shops topped with snow and sparkling with Christmas lights. Each day, he witnesses this city’s story unfolding: chapters filled with the lives of the artists, students, entrepreneurs, and so many others who call Muskegon home.
