    Your Degree

    What degree do you have?
  2. Yes. This is happening all of the country. I don't like this trend. This is why I rarely go to a "mall" these days.

    I know you're kidding, but we have a few Mexican's from NEOhio on the forum.

  6. What do you mean by "neighborhood" branding. Our neighborhoods have generally been places where people from certain countries, ethnicities gather and set down roots. Some of those area's are still in tact. Little Itally (we had 2/3 of those), The area in the 30, before construction of the inner belt had Italian (Big Italy) & German neighborhoods China Town. Slavic Village = Polish Northern Ohio City = Irish Southern Ohio City = German Newburgh, & St. Clair Superior = Slovakian, Croation or Slovenian Ukranian = by the zoo Hungarians = buckeye/woodhill Kinsman and Hough were Jewish I could go on. today Little Italy, Collinwood, Tremont, Ohio City, Asian Village, Detroit Shoreway, Slavic Village, Brooklyn Center, still have their ethnic roots. In other areas new groups pop up like along Lorain. My uncle went to Lincoln-West when it first opened, he was one of the few non white kids. When my cousins attended Lincoln west in the 80s it went from primarily Irish, Polish, German. Now the area and school is mostly Latin. Mexican, PR, Panamanian, Salvadorian, Cuban now Colombian and Venezuelan's area moving in. My point is I could go to one of those areas and shop at a market for something ethnic. For instance for a lot items on today's dinner menu, my mom and I had to shop on the Westside. We cant get the cerdito in Shaker. We can get the ingredients for pasteles in Shaker. I wanted to get parranda for my Abuelo, neices and nephews, but they are hard to get. We still have great ethnic neighborhoods in the city and in the burbs, like Euclid, Parma, Lakewood, that you can find ethnic wares and cuisine. It's not just "branding" a neighborhood.

    Racism

    Mexico is an extremely heirarchical culture where everyone is quite aware of relative status. A big factor in one's status is the level of Spaniard blood, with those visibly "pure blooded" or close being at a big advantage. what?? Although I'm not Mexican, one of you speak out, I can say that I don't think there is any validity to this. Considering the Olmec followed by AmerIndian & Mestizo people, along with the Inkan O& Mayan predate the European arrival.
  8. You know you should get some kind of special "True 3C'er" badge. It's not hard to find 2C'ers on UO but someone who has done multiple years in all 3Cs is rare. Heh. I can't even look at it like that. All three cities are entirely different from one another, despite being in the same state. I feel like I'm 2000 miles from home. Columbus is closer to Indianapolis, culturally, than Cleveland. Cincinnati is probably more similar to Louisville than Columbus, etc. What a bizarre state we live in. And how come no one talks about this? What's up with Clevelanders and corned beef? Corned beef is everywhere in Cleveland. I didn't even know what corned beef was, before I moved up here and I'm only from 2 and 4 hours south of here. Oh, and Polish Boys. Those are everywhere. Eastern Europeans. Jews. We have ethnic neighborhoods here in Cleveland. Columbus has ethnic neighborhoods too. They just aren't white ethnic neighborhoods. So I understand why David is a bit confused. Please explain. I'm pretty quick, but I don't get it. I pretty familiar with CBUS as I went to OSU and my nephew/nieces attend OSU so I'm there occasionally. But I don't see the same type of ethnic neighborhoods/enclaves we have in Cleveland proper.
  9. The subway and commutter rail yards are vastly different. NYC transit can build underground yards like they have at 137 street and 148 or East NY yards. IIRC, Hudson Yards has been severly limited and NJT, AMTRAK & LIRR trains idle in Sunnyside. I was invited to the tour of the 96 street station last week but couldn't go. I see if I can get some pictures.
  10. Not only is the B backed up in Brooklyn it also affects CPW.
  11. My dad and I were watching HGTV yesterday and there was a family from Broadview Hts on the lottery winner home search. They wanted a nice house and some of the homes they were shown were so boring. These homes could have been in any suburban development, in any city.

    Cleveland: Population Trends

    I agree, but you did need your park to go to the public pool, the recreation pavillion, tennis courts, etc.,

    That is because TBS owned the Braves, Hawks, Thrashers and Omni Coliseum.
