The Social Security Administration building has a great beginners lot. There is a very slight grade for water drainage which allows one to get a decent bit of cruising for little push. A word of caution though, some cars do cut through the lot to get to Dunkin Donuts or out to Detroit. So as always, be aware of your surroundings. There are trash cans up on the side walk and a couple of cars park on the far side of the lot. The surface on the blacktop is an A-. There are occasionally small sticks from the tress but overall the lot is pretty smooth.
