Just wanted to share some GR shots. Many of the fake facades added to buildings in the 60's, 70's and 80's have been coming down in Grand Rapids, exposing a great collection of late 1800's Italianate architecture. We have one of the largest collections of residential and commercial Italianate architecture in the country. This is a two block area on Monroe Center downtown. Enjoy ;)

Flatiron Building - Built in 1863 by William Ledyard and Moses Aldrich - Actually preceded the NY Flatiron Building by almost 40 years.

Aldrich Building - Built in 1850 by Moses Aldrich

Great pics, I love GR so much. I was over there for that fair going on awhile back in June I think. It was a beautiful day and there were tons of people walking around in the streets. I plan on getting an internship there next summer.
