The banks of the Grand River in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan include an eclectic blend of fascinating architecture. Many of the more modern buildings, like the 28 story Amy Grand Plaza, are covered in reflective glass. Old-style streets lights stand gracefully along the streets and reflect in the historic river, as do the lighted bridges and the glass covering the hotel, which is a golden glow in the late day sun. Itís rare that I look for beauty in such a populated place, but I was certainly not disappointed.
