When you meet people out of state unfortunately you generally have to tell them "Lansing" because they won't understand how much cooler it is to live in East Lansing and that anyone living in Lansing or other surrounding areas should be mocked and riduculed.
most people I choose to hang out with are aware of this little college in East Lansing.. they've usually heard of it.

I lived in East Lansing for 10+ years and now I live in Holt. Either way I always said I was from Lansing, but I guess I didn't feel the need for people to know that I was associated with the prestige of East Lansing. Although, ironically many in the surrounding areas rip on East Lansing and Okemos for being the same kind of snobs that you mock for going Up North.

No, because those properties look very neglected and attract lower-income people.

That doesn't sound like anything someone from a prestigious town like EAST Lansing could be involved in. But someone like me might consider doing something like this.

Bob is now giving absolution for moves out of East Lansing.   

Just another great aspect of that personality that makes you such a great Spartan and American.

Vintage steel deck grating from Mackinac Bridge




Section of original steel grating from the Mackinac Bridge deck. Selling 7 individual, identical pieces of grating separately. THIS AUCTION IS FOR ONE PIECE. Pieces are approximately 5 1/2 feet X 38 feet and 5 inches deep. Condition is used with corrosion and section loss appropriate to steel that is 60 years old. Each piece weighs about 2 tons.
Grating was originally coated with lead based paint. Much of this is gone, but Buyer will have to sign a "Hold Harmless agreement" related to the lead paint and the structural condition of the grating. The Hold Harmless agreement is an attachment to the auction ad.

Seller agrees to cut the grating section into two shorter pieces for ease of shipping if desired. Price of this one cut is included in the bid. No other cutting or manipulation of the grating will be done by the seller.
