|Satellite view showing Lansing, capital city of the State of Michigan in the United States.
The city is located in the south central part of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan at the confluence of the Grand River and the Red Cedar River, 90 mi (145 km) north west of Detroit.
Like many U.S. State capitals, Lansing plays an underpart in Americas cultural and military impact on the rest of the world.
Lansing came into existence as a scam. In early 1836, two brothers from New York (state) plotted the area and sold plots of "Biddle City" to people from Lansing, NY. The group of settlers arrived to Mid-Michigan only to find their plots submerged under several feet of water, but the then not so proud owners of a lot of useless land in a nonexistent city stayed and renamed the settlement "Lansing Township".
About ten years later the 20 people strong population of the township were surprised by the decision of the Michigan House of Representatives to repositioning Michigan's state capital from Detroit to their village.
Today Lansing has a population of about 114,000 inhabitants (in 2014), it is situated in the middle of a lake peninsula, GM's Oldsmobile brand which was produced in Lansing phased out and poor Lansing is still heckled by the influential, metropolitan cities of Chicago and Detroit, but you never know.
Just zoom in (+) to see Michigan State Capitol building, which houses the legislative and executive branches of the government of the U.S. state of Michigan.
