Downtown Grand Rapids sure has come a long way. It was a West Michigan center for retail, enterprise and entertainment way back when. Then it fell into decay with age, retail moved out to shopping malls, and the streets "rolled up" in the evening. Then, things began to change again, 20 plus years ago, and now it's returned to a level of activity and excitement not seen for many years.
On the website, GR Retro, I found some really fascinating pictures of Grand Rapids "back in the day," and how it has changed today.
Can you pick out where these pictures from GR Retro were taken?
