Grand Rapids home for sale has hidden 2,300-piece pipe organ

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- On a quiet street on the city's West Side is an unassuming home for sale with an unusual secret: a 2,300 piece pipe organ.

Driving down the road, you would have no idea the house contains more pipes than your average church organ. It is something that needs to be seen to believed -- or rather heard.

By the kitchen table is the pipe organ with three sets of keyboards, stacked on top of each other with foot pedals. When you turn it on, a giant blower it can be heard in the basement. The organ, however, is only the half of it.

A door in the back of the house reveals a room with hundreds of pipes of all sizes. Through another door there are even more pipes, some two-stories tall. In all, there are around 2,300 with each pipe providing a different musical note. The whole organ takes up more than one third of the house.

New winter parking rules for 19 G.R. streets

GRAND RAPIDS - Winter is coming, and the City of Grand Rapids is making changes to parking on 19 streets.

The hope is to allow emergency vehicles, fire trucks especially, to get through streets the city says "are the most challenging for snow removal and public safety accessibility."

Property owners on the streets received notices this week letting them know that on those streets, parking will be on one side of the street only, all winter long.

The city says people with questions should call 311.

On the streets in question, the odd-even rules will no longer be in effect, since residents will only be allowed to park on one side of the street throughout the winter season.

The affected streets are:
