Many moons ago, I had the opportunity to explore the Lafayette Building in downtown Detroit, Michigan with two friends. It was a blustery, cold Sunday morning and there was not a soul out. No pedestrians and very few cars. In retrospect, I wish I had spent more time at the Lafayette. I only saw the interior once and that was brief – it was more photogenic than I imagined despite years of abuse and alterations.
A powerful storm overnight produced at least two tornados struck Nashville, Tennessee, killing at least 19 and destroying significant portions of the historic Tennessee State Penitentiary, among many other buildings in the region.
