  1. I've always fancied the cemetery spruced up a bit and looking (and used as) something akin to the Literary promenade in Central Park NYC. Not that many downtowns ANYWHERE have an historic green space quite like this. It's high time we acknowledged that.
  2. Funny that Bedrock should go to the trouble of identifying that historic photo as the Prospect Ave. facade, when it's actually the Ontario St facade. Most people can't recall that the May Co, had an entrance there, but I do. They were next door neighbors to The Bailey Co.
  3. With all the conjecture surrounding what will potentially fill the warehouse district void in the SW HQ campus, I think of what was lost there, and attempt to soothe my melancholy with rationale. A great many structures hadn't been maintained and were derelict or were primitive fire hazards. Others had outlived their purpose or simply weren't as utilitarian as a surface parking lot. There were however two structures of which I especially rue their demise. The Blackstone Block and the Weideman Co. warehouse. If I were able to choose out of all the many historic buildings in the warehouse district to resurrect from the past, it would be these.
  4. My Grandfather took the family to the Air Races in 1934 and held onto the program. He also used the cover to collect Mary Pickford's autograph.
  5. I agree! But I often wonder if historic tax credits could be used to expand the height to what was originally intended. The building was designed in a gothic idiom and was over 30 stories tall. The final design maintained a short version and an a more deco styling. It was clearly inspired by Eliel Saarinen's Tribune Tower competition design, which ultimately wasn't selected.
  6. This is by no means a new plan, but this is something Westlake Reed had created for precisely this parcel. https://www.wrldesign.com/projects/planningurban-design/cleveland-arts-district-master-plan This is what was there until the late 60s.
  7. A couple more. The Waldorf is at E.119th & Kinsman. The New Lincoln at Madison Ave and Arthur Ave (east of Hilliard).
  8. I'd come upon some photos of old Cleveland neighborhood movie theaters and thought I would re-imagine them somewhat in their current surroundings. The Abby Theater was in Collinwood and The Norwood was on St. Clair near E. 65th St.
  9. I'm also curious about the block between E. 4th st. and E. 2nd on the south side of Prospect. If they dismiss the historic relevance of the Record Rendezvous building, I'll be very disappointed in their lack of vision. Perhaps that location will be addressed in future renderings (fingers crossed . . . on the whole darn thing).
  10. My apologies. Since that is what I would describe as a trellis instead of a fence, I was mistaken. I do agree though . . .unless the plan is to employ the purpose of a trellis by planting a creeping plant such as wisteria or clematis.
  11. I saw a video interview with the Union Club President who said that the intended purpose of owning the lot next door was to help facilitate its development, although none is imminent.
  12. Why? It's merely a temporary and necessary barrier closing off a construction site and not intended to be a permanent fixture. I'm confused by your outrage.
