I spent the day in Hastings recently. Many of the structures look much the same, save for the Youth Center and monstrosity they erected across the street from it. Though much of the brick and mortar remains, there was something different. The village felt grey, lifeless, the energy nothing like I remembered. What was different? As I walked through the village it was soon clear what was missing? The people. Hastings has become gentrified. The color and authenticity that truly made Hastings a very special place was no longer. Avoir Hastings, your people once made you a very special place, a very special moment in time.
