Despite several excellent guesses, no readers correctly identified the June 27 Eye for Design’s brick and stone detail at 106 E. Cesar Chavez Ave. (below) in Lansing’s Old Town. Such elaborate elements are commonly found on Queen Anne and Italianate buildings that define our densest, historic urban areas.
The stone detail above may be found in East Lansing. Visitors should step inside to avoid the heat and to cool off with some ice cream. The first person to correctly identify the location of the detail will receive a City Pulse Eye for Design mug. Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 5.
“Eye for Design” is our weekly look at some of the nicer properties in Lansing. It rotates each with Eye candy of the Week and Eyesore of the Week. If you have a suggestion, please e-mail email@example.com or call Berl Schwartz at 999-5061.
