  1. My birthday (and screen name) - I know it's highly unlikely and I'm not a church/miracle person but it would be the best f#cking birthday present EVER if someone, somehow came up with a cure by then. Apologies for being away from the forum - I'm very fortunate to be working (remotely) but working in insurance, things have been crazybusy lately as you can probably imagine. As others have mentioned, some of you might annoy the h#ll out of the Admins and Mods but please be healthy and safe - once it's do-able, we are having one EPIC happy hour meetup and if I'm still gainfully employed I might just buy the first round!
  2. Another day, another walk... annnd I forgot to put the memory card in my DSLR so crappy phone pic it is Apparently the Cuyahoga is at record levels today
  3. I always enjoy these but this one is technically incorrect (doesn't change how cool it is, though). The original construction consisted of only 14 window bays spanning the Superior side. In 1910, four additional bays were added - see the thicker vertical strip on the left side - that's where they were added.
  4. @mrclifton88 that can't be the Athlon/CAC Apologies for being away from the forum - I work in the insurance industry; if anyone ever wants to suggest insurance is boring, after the past week or so, I highly beg to differ. That said, I finally found a quick moment to get some CDC-compliant socially distant fresh air on the Scranton stretch of the Towpath today.
  5. Looks like it's time to the Admins and Mods to research the mortality rate of forumer accounts who post BS (of whatever angle) in this thread.
  6. Figured it was a good time to get back to things that make me happy, like photography.
  7. Going through my photo archives, came across these pics - taken November 2001.
  8. I was maintaining the Cleveland development thread at the skyscraperpage.com forum for almost two decades but eventually the site's management let everything go to h#ll (trolls, site security, updating the software, etc.). So I decided if they aren't going to invest in the forum, I'm not going to bother spending my time there. It's still a good resource for other cities but for Cleveland, the most current info is here on UrbanOhio. Back on topic, please!
  9. It was Pho Thang on Rockwell/Ninth; love the place but 1. not everyone loves Vietnamese food and 2. in the interest of time and amount of people showing up, best to stick with more “fast casual” spots - so Masthead might be a good choice
  10. Enjoying your photo posts; if you’re posting one or a few pics, could you post them in the Cleveland: Random Photo thread? Individual photo thread posts are better suited for batches of images. Thanks!
  11. #ijs ya fetuses! It was posted in the Retail thread but getting back on topic... Wish I had chance to check the place out; maybe they were just a little ahead of their time - a lot of adjacent construction but not enough completed and residents to sustain the business?
  12. #okmillennials, I’m 47 and can post a link to an article https://m.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2020/02/25/ohio-city-galley-to-cease-operations-this-weekend?utm_source=feature&utm_medium=home&utm_campaign=hpfeatures&utm_content=HomeFeaturedStoriesCustomMobile
  13. ^I wouldn’t be able to make it there during the week but great suggestion; been meaning to try it out. On second thought
  14. ^Thought about that, and in theory it'd be great but a few concerns: First floor is a non-starter - too much commotion especially at lunchtime for a large group Second floor (north/Euclid side) - their communal tables only hold eight each and not sure if those are movable? I think our last meetup at Market we had about 16 people Second floor (west/East Ninth side) - last time I checked, we'd need to probably take over every non-hightop they have
  15. Yes, I guess we're due for another meet up. I'm struggling to think of somewhere other than Market that's: Centrally located (downtown/CBD) Easily accessible via main transit/trolley lines Can accommodate our group without major hassle (anymore we routinely fill at least one of the communal tables at Market) Offers variety of dining for anyone with dietary constraints Relatively budget friendly If anyone has suggestions, let me know - thanks!

  17. Aesthetically, they break up the expanses of monotonous glass and as ASPhotoman suggested, they provide a visual element to draw the eye upward. Also, there have been other reasons for pushback on all-glass facades.
  18. ^Nice, been contemplating doing the same in the near future. For now - here's a pic from terra firma (the Innerbelt, so still in motion):
  19. A few from today - apologies for the blurs and whatnot, again that darn husband wouldn't come to a stop on the Innerbelt
  20. Folks (especially for those of you who are newer to the forum), speculative retail discussion will get threads locked in a hot minute. The reason is we've had issues over the years with forumers who would routinely take construction threads way off topic with this - and then our volunteer staff has to take time out of their lives to clean up the threads and bring them back on topic. We have threads in other sections to discuss retail - the Projects and Construction threads are specifically to discuss the construction process/progress.
  21. Good discussion, but best for another thread - thanks!
  22. Produce stands: DeCaro's and Basketeria Beef - Lance's or Jim's; Pinzone's (mostly for the meatballs) Pork/Poultry - D.W. Whittakers and the Pork Chop Shop Cheese - The Cheese Shop and Mediterranean Import Store (their indoor signage reads "Culinary Specialties") Seasoning/Spices - Urban Herbs, Narrin for more unusual selection Prepared foods (I love to cook but don't always have time) Irene Dever (dips, pierogis) Orale' (Mexican) Kim Se (Thai and Cambodian) Jacobs Oasis (Middle Eastern) Ohio City Pasta And there's always the West Side Market Cafe for breakfast (open even when the Market isn't).
