Village 'Face Lifting': This aerial view of Willow Village shows the changing appearance of the World War II "Bomber City." Some of the more than 500 new private homes occupied in the Ypsilanti township portion are shown as well as part of the 106 new houses constructed in the Superior township section of the Village. Until Ypsilanti township took over operation of the Village, there were more than 2,500 row-type apartment units. Now there are less than 350 such units scattered across the Village. The scarred land remains after the "temporary" rental units are cleared away and until new housing is constructed. This view looks northeast, with Holmes Rd. in the upper right corner.
