This handsome 1886 building is downtown on Park Avenue. Take time one weekend to do a "walking and gawking" tour of the central business district.
The entire facade of this 1888 East Front Street building is ornate and worthy of studying from the sidewalk. Don't worry about looking silly, bring your birdwatching binoculars or a zoom-lens camera.
A walking tour of the downtown or any of the city's six residential historic districts is free, educational and inspiring. There is a lot to enjoy in these visual treats and Fall is a great time for a walk.
