When we returned to Manitowoc to open our studio in 1989, the former Hotel Manitowoc (then the Villa Martime) had heavy metal drug traffic and people falling or jumping out of the windows. Far from the tranquil small town world we envisioned returning to. Subsequently the building was refurbished then reinvented as Historic Manitowoc Place Apartment Homes with a restaurant, 8th & York, at street level.
