Detroit Swag-o-mania

Some of nature's more beautiful moments in Detroit are created by the spring and autumn fogs that rise over the city. The autumn fog season arrived in Detroit today, rolling in around 7 AM and with burn-off, shown here, starting around 10 AM. Ship horns are calling out to each other all over the Straits of the Detroit.

    Default Source for granite street pavers

    I don't know how common they were in Detroit, but does anyone know a source for granite street pavers? I am doing some landscaping and need about 20 more. They measure about 5" x 5" x ~10".

    My Mom's neighbor originally got the pavers I already have. They were definitely used on a street somewhere because there is a distinct worn side.

    I tried a couple of salvage places, but no luck.

    Thanks!

    Thanks BGM. I gave them a try, but no luck. Turns out they are 4" x 4" x ~10" if that matters to anyone. Only sources I find online are out of state.

    My next door neighbor has a huge, unsightly pile of square-ish stones outside his garage. He says they came from the site where they built Ren Cen. At the site had been an old road. You can see wheel ruts in some of the stones. The stones are granite and limestone.

    Crystal, if they are indeed granite - and your neighbor is willing to part with them - PM me. I'll get the eyesore out of your way. A photo would be great if you can do that.

    Crystal, I PM'd you, don't know if you saw it or not. I'm still interested, if your neighbor would be willing to part with any pavers. Thanks.
