    Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

    To be honest, if icelandair picks up another day and has 5 days per week, not the end of the world. They are the better airline

    Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

    I took the new cle-slc route last week. Great route to get to west coast if not going to LA or SF. Breaks up the travel nicely and is a straight shot. Both of my flights were 100% full. Not sure why they go out of A concourse though

    No other way to get to midway. Southwest was cheaper than JetBlue direct to Boston?

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Cleveland.com interviewed a guy from Iowa who was here for the first time on business and was excited about going to Great Lakes. So disappointing that’s the first impression

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    ^this is a one off for this area... as far as I’m concerned. I can’t remember another violent incident on the strip. It’s sad though. And perception will creep into the minds of those who are fearful. Hope those from suburbia still feel comfortable there. That being said, do people think cleveland is safe? I think it’s somewhere in between safe and dangerous. When I lived there, I certainly picked and chose where I was going to be and when. Always paying attention and alert
  6. Edit. I’m not gonna comment. Sorry that happened tonight, OC folks
  7. Oh, nice Yabo. Ive been watching this project closely, running through there about once per week and going to the farmers markets. Its shaping up really nicely, i think you will enjoy working there. The food hall will be very unique and a great place to grab a happy hour beer. You are an OC guy, right? not a bad commute by train
  8. As far as your question. I would encourage people considering to move their families to urban neighborhoods to have balance in their assessment and let them decide. Only saying we have the best food, parks, museums isn’t a balanced description. The pros and cons are appropriate for the person trying to find their home.. just because you and I want our urban neighborhoods filled with families doesn’t mean that’s the right fit for the poster. We should give the person all appropriate information good and bad. We can’t let our agendas drive where someone selects where they sleep. KJP had the best advice, just rent first. .
  9. ^stated above. I love the near west side, some of the best years of my life were there. We did great grassroots work and had a ton of fun And pot calling the kettle black, you can prop up your neighborhood without tearing down neighboring suburbs. Saying there is nothing “interesting” there is very subjective. That’s your opinion. I’ve lived in both. I stay very busy here and my kids love it. Always a lot going on for all ages. Have you lived over here and it wasn’t interesting or does it just not sound interesting to you?
  10. Yes. I capitalized immensely off my Gordon square purchase from 2011. Aware of the supply/demand in the area Do you have kids? Honest question. I take my kids to shaker square, shaker lakes, university circle, little Italy often. Very accessible from the heights. Then when it’s just a basic day, they can run around the neighborhood with friends without having to worry about an abnormally high number of registered sex offenders within a 2 mile radius (and this is not my words, this is from the registered sex offenders website http://www.icrimewatch.net/index.php?AgencyID=55149)
  11. This is subjective. “Interesting places” changes a bit when you have two daughters. Gonna go out on a limb and say the original poster isn’t hitting up the transformer station and black pig three times per week. This coming from a huge OC fan and former Gordon square resident...with two daughters, if they r gonna run around the neighborhood and play for hours on end, you want to know they are safe while you aren’t watching them. Lakewood, shaker, CH check that box more than OC Plenty of “interesting places” for families in these communities

    Cleveland Browns Discussion

    Someone had asked for some pictures. It was truly an awesome night at the stadium (cant believe i just said that). It was also the night i became a fan again. I havent been to a game since 2011. It was never going to be worth my time with two little kids and other things i like to do with my free time. I didnt change allegiances, but i just couldnt care much. I went to the game Thursday to get out with some guys, have a couple brews and let loose on a nice night. I ended up with a giant man crush on Baker Mayfield and a renwed interest in this team. The stadium outside the game after was bonkers. It was like a completely different city. You could cut the energy in the air with a knife. Really good stuff. The ratings on NFL Network were the highest they have been in 3 years. People across the country were interested "Can this polarizing guy with a funny name lead this awful team out of the sespool". Thats a compelling story line. If the Browns can muster some wins, look for them to be flexed into national audience spots later this year. Edit- I cant attach a jpeg for whatever reason...so no pictures i guess
