It will be nice, though, to have the view from Summer St on the west side to start filling in with some taller buildings. :yahoo: Kind of disjointed from that perspective right now.

No, all you have to do is make (or force) friendships with the people that will live there :)

If it includes their fridge, I'm in. Oh, and their living room opening up to that side of the city.

Here is an attempt at a panorama. Keep in mind all I got at home is MS Paint. :blush: So much for the sun today!

That is a good shot, Andy. It shows downtown from a side most people don't see that don't live here.

I agree. I think the angles from the westside are overly photographed and the shot above is quite great for its originality.

I think we should have an Urban Planet - Grand Rapids photo of a day contest. Yah, lets have a photo contest!

Yes sir, and the cops were eyeing me each frame I took! I'm glad I took this when I did, (before all the whopla) I was on it the day that woodtv announced it, "unsafe."

The back of the old Cybernet HQ and Weston Apts. :)

Since the weather hasn't been cooperating, I'll post some from last Summer:

Thanks for all the photos of GR. It makes me miss my hometown! But now that I've found this site, I can "visit" often.
