This much under appreciated city has a wonderful Federal residence that is now a private club,late 19th century water tower, streamlined former Greyhound bus station, powerful industrial and warehouse buildings (although one of the most important was demolished,without reason), a bold art museum, and strong retail buildings and blocks, defined by attention to detail. Plus it sits adjacent to a great lake and has outgoing, friendly people who are enthusiastic about their architecture.

Part of the pleasure of visiting the Museum of Modern Art is watching the people move through the building. Sometimes you see brief glimpses as you move past a cutout in the wall or when they are going up or down the stairs and escalators, or other times you stare at them as they stare at the art.
