Google Maps Challenge - New Hunt (and it's free!)

Status - ACTIVE
This is my first "Google Maps Challenge" hunt. Nothing to buy - it's free! 
Everything you need to get started is right here.
Prize: $25 Amazon gift card.


Instructions
This Google Maps Challenge takes place in the greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area. I've created a set of four clues that will lead you to specific locations in the area. There are four specific locations that need to be found.

Each set of clues has a two part solution.
  • The first part of the solution is the location related to that clue.
  • The second part of the solution is the text you need to find. You'll need to be using street view to find the text.

The Clues

Clue #1
More than a century has gone by
And memories are fading away.
But some still pause to cry
For the tragedy that struck on Boxing day.

Once you're on track you'll find what you need.
Seek a sign and write what you've seen.

Clue #2
Three sizes of the same
Stand on display.
Miss Gherardini by another name
Might have something to say.

Once you've drawn nigh you'll find a dent on the wall.
Look to the left and write the first name that you saw.

Clue #3
You're so fine
Was something Bob never said.
It was just a line
So don't let it go to your head.

Once you've found where he is, there's really only one way in.
Look to the right and take note from beginning to end.

Clue #4
Let your attitude be
A lamp that can heal.
Sometimes it's free
To eat a Heavenly meal.

Once you've found your spot, it can be a real pane.
To the left is a sign for what kind of lane?
