Not sure if there was a topic here involving Wikipedia already but I have been editing Grand Rapids topics heavily lately.
There are a few things that I would like to ask you guys if you have any knowledge:
1. Where was the old Plainfield Bridge?
2. Does anyone have sources for the history of Grand Rapids' tallest buildings?
3. Where are some good places that I can take updated photos?
Anything would help and if you guys have any other recommendations as well, just let me know.
I did this post on the Grand Rapids Skywalk awhile back, and I just looked back at it and I realized, that I am missing a lot of information. Specifically I am looking at some background and history on the Skywalk system in Grand Rapids. How did it get started? Where was it started? Why was it started? That sort of thing. I think it would be interesting to take a deeper look at this. Also is the Skywalk a city initiative? Meaning do they fund and build it or is this built and paid for by the building owners themselves? Or is it a combination of both?
I also created this cool Bing Map which shows the Skywalk and identifies all the buildings that are attached to the skywalk. I am telling you that Bird's Eye view on Bing is awesome.
It also made me take a closer look at identifying the separate but unconnected skywalks on the Medical Mile and within the GRCC campus. I never really thought of those examples either, but I guess I will throw those in as well. So if you have any information on those skywalk systems please let me know.
Thanks for your help.
