Where I stayed
John D. Rockefeller lived most of his life in Cleveland and is buried very close to the James Garfield Monument. His gravesite is marked with a large oblisk. I also visited the Wade Chapel with an interior done by Louis Comfort Tiffany. People may not think of Cleveland as an important place now but it was in the late 1800's.
My next stop was the Peter Lewis Building designed by Frank Gehry on the Case Western Reserve University campus. I've seen several Gehry buildings before but this was my first opportunity to go inside one
The lighting wasn't good for photographing the Peter Lewis Building so I went over to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens to see the Kohl Gate designed by Albert Paley. The gates are 60 feet long and 15 feet high and are made out of thick COR-TEN steel cut and bent into stylized leaf shapes.
I killed a little time until the lighting got better and then went back to the Peter Lewis Building to get some pictures before heading back to my room.
Tomorrow I'll be finishing up in Cleveland and heading for Toledo.
