  1. Tongue in cheek, it would appear that the Dutch have shrank their river for PARKING. Clearly Cleveland must as well.
  2. I used to live and work for the city of mentor. There a few places to photograph there that would be "urban" Ohio, or much even old ohio. There is garfields house, then just down the street old city hall and the school there that got converted to poorly selling condos, At 615 & and mentor ave. The old houses that are left are on hart street, maple street, burridge ave, and jackson street. Basicaly the area bound by 615, station street, mentor ave and jackson st. Next to the cemetery at the intersection of hopkins and jackson street, is a nice house, one of the osburne homes (of concrete and real-estate). He has another home on 615 nearish the 90 interchange that you cant see, but you can see the earthen embankments and driveway. An italianate home is on garfield road, near the newly built avrey denison plant. The mentor lagoons is good for nature shots, that we see from time to time on urban ohio. There are also some older homes on headlands road up by mentor headlands state beach park. Off of little mountain rd, there is some estate type home or something located inside wildwood park. Also parkins drive, off of little mountain road nearby is some estate homes something to do with perkins farm (the stonework entrance on perkins road and little mountain is the old rear entrance, and the entrance to the farm is located at chilliocothe and johnny cake ridge road. At readhurst and chilocothe the two homes on redhurst there I think are osburne related. There are 2 addtional osburne homes on chilocothe, but you can only see their diveways.
  3. So we get the ability to have wind, but nobody is likely to use it due to nimby ordinaces. It would also appear the only feasable way to actually get one in your yard would be to buy and raze your neighbors house. Why regulate how close it is to the neighbors yard, when we dont regulate how close trees could be? They seem to fall down more regularly, as to opposed to a properly anchored turbine.
  4. http://blog.cleveland.com/architecture/2009/04/if_wind_farms_come_to_clevelan.html Cleveland proposes ordinance to regulate aesthetics and safety of wind turbines Posted by Steven Litt / Plain Dealer Architecture Critic April 15, 2009 12:44PM Categories: Architecture, Art, Arts Impact, City Planning, Steven Litt David Duprey/Associated Press A wind farm in Lackawanna, N.Y., was built recently by First Wind, a green energy company that has stirred controversy in western New York State. There's a lot to love about wind energy. It's clean and green, and, depending on how they're designed, wind farms can be aesthetically pleasing. But what happens when a new industry -- no matter how beneficial-- enters a major American city with new structures that have the potential to change the look and feel of the entire community for better or worse? .......
  5. It is the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, not the Cleveland.
  6. The Cuyahoga river is still a working river, not all sights are going to be pretty. The silos, though uneappealing to the eye, adds visual interest to the river. The river and lake are inheriently boring to look at. Its the activity of boats on these waterways that makes them interesting. So long as the concrete silos are there, there will be boats there. They aren't worth fussing with, move them when the port leaves, and that segment of the river ceases to be a working part of the river. They just arent worth the big fuss right now.
  7. They also seem to be in the process of replacing the old stations on superior with ones smiliar to the ones on the ECP. This evening the one in front of the fed was gone, and a new one was errected in front of the keith building.
  8. Axe that park on E 55th marina. That concerned letter to strickland is weak at best. All they are loosing is rich man dock space. Old current port space, can be used for everything the letter complains about loosing BUT dock space. This spot is best for a port, its next to nothing but undersused industiral lands, a highway, and E 55th industrial spine. Best for trucks, instead of the mess of them navigating through the flats and downtown.
  9. go with the willoughby brewpub if you like great lakes brewpub. Great lakes is better, but willoughby is simmilar in experience foods and beers.
  10. In the 3rd pic that used to be an entrance for the amusement park, all carnie style rides there. It got taken down like maybe 2 years ago. The whole strip there has a county fair feel (minus the animals) there. The state park part is real nice, me and the family years ago rented a cabin on the lake there. It was spartan but more than adiquite for a 4 day vacation. Mentor-on-the-Lake had a simmilar area.
  11. Looking at other teleco buildings, cleveland didn't seem to fair terribly
  12. ^I recall it was in those picture threads from that guy that had the pictures from cleveland in the 80's. Any case to keep topical, I can't wait till the rest of the buildings in the area gets there orginal facades back.
  13. ^ Yes that particular building is in the college town footprint of no architectural detail or relevence.
  14. My one and only salient thought is homeowner associations are only useful in situations where your unit is attached to another unit. All other times it just seems to be a bunch of people micromanaging the lives of others to create homogeniality. Its purpose is to "preserve the value" of the neighborhoods, but I wouldn't pay other people to enforce a mythical value on a house.
  15. The Beachland Ballroom and Tavern - Cleveland Surly Girl Saloon - Columbus Mitzi Jerman's Café - Cleveland Five O'Clock Bar - Lakewood Andyman's Treehouse - Columbus We all know what our own favorites are. What ones would you add, what ones would you remove? Discuss..
