  1. We had a conversation on a thread once. But I can't find the thread. I had been to an event in Chicago where Flats Chicago said they were venturing out of Chicago with their first project in another city, and it was Cleveland. They were known as Cedar Street too. The company website is https://www.cedarst.com/ Website looks to be under some changes. The one original guy from Flats Chicago died and he was on a Bravo reality show called 100 days of summer.
  2. @KJP Did I tell you I found out that this was the project that FLATS Chicago is involved with?
  3. I really like that Knez guy. He's doing urban stuff in Akron too. I thought it was pronounced Nezz not Ka-nezz. You learn something new everyday. Some of the designs are mediocre though, but they have an opening for an architect on the website. I do interiors, or I'd apply and come back to Ohio. Get an UrbanOhioan Architect in that company and take it up a notch!!
  4. UA sucks, packing so many flights into ORD has caused a lot of people to hate them in Chicago. It's too many damn flights, and they all get delayed the more they pack them in.
  5. I was about to say with such a big store maybe H&M would bring in some of the Swedish Brand "Cheap Monday" they owned, but after googling it, it looks they killed it off. It was more mid market better made stuff than H&M. They still have COS (Council of Style) which is the better brand.
  6. That's weird. I see them a lot in Chicago with IN and WI plates. And rode in them. Their excuse is that it is the only way for them to make a lot of money in a short period of time and that they can't do it where they live. A lot from the far burbs like Naperville too. They have zero idea where they are going in the city, and I have to tell them where to go and not use the GPS...their GPS does not work well with places like lower Wacker Dr, and not taking a freeway. I also have had a college students that rented a car on the weekend to do it. Maybe that explains out of state plates too. I have gone back to taking cabs more. Usually same price or cheaper.

  8. This is a huge thing, and could be bad for Columbus. I'm sure if any of you know anyone that works there, you've heard this is happening pretty fast.

    Ohio Turnpike

    OK, so I still have never gotten over the removal of the OHIO TURNPIKE neon letters at the turnpike gates. And I loved how the old gates were subtle different shades of green on different surfaces. It was classic modern highway design. Like National Park signs. But has anyone noticed that the (at least historical) designation of WESTGATE at the Indiana border and EASTGATE at the PA Border is now seemingly gone. I noticed that WESTGATE is now even more boringly called EXIT 2. Seriously, just when you thought Ohio couldn't get more characterless. I know its petty, but that kind of stuff bugs me.
  10. If I was Mayor of Cleveland, I'd implement a strategy to make the city more walkable by adding a ton of this kind of thing to promote walkability and healthy lifestyle. Mayor Daly did it in Chicago in the late 90's...4 way stops at tons of intersections with bump outs and clearly marked cross walks, and these little roundabouts. Drivers bitched about it, but it worked and drivers calmed down. I'd call the program Cleveland Walks! (play on Cleveland Rocks...duh)and make it a city wide initiative and a public awareness campaign. The city already has a good sidewalk infrastructure in place....unlike newer cities. (edit) Every council person would be able to do all over their ward in my program, not just in cute neighborhoods.
  11. Chicago has them all over the north side in residential neighborhoods. I mentioned this a while back, that Ohio City had a lot of silly little traffic lights that might be better served by a well designed 4 way stop. Cleveland seems to have too many of the residential area traffic lights that would be expensive to maintain I'd think. The ones along Bridge Ave..especially by Heck's comes to mind
  12. I always got them at Barneys, and that is now closed too as well as Co-op in lincoln park. In my defense, I work in the west loop and live in Pilsen. I rarely go across the river to N Michigan Ave. Good to know Nordstroms and Sak's have them. They didn't used to. They last forever...but I'm in need of some new pairs. Keeping it on topic...do the Cleveland stores carry them?
  13. Co-op unfortunately closed a few years ago in Chicago...are there any left? Where can I get my APC jeans. Edit...looks like SAK's mag mile has them according to the website.
  14. A few more notable notes or musings: Near Case Western, there was a Jewish guy speaking to a group of people in an outdoor forum about how and why the Jewish community power structure began to move to Beachwood in the 1970's In the same area in University Circle we heard 5 different languages being spoken in a matter of minutes. At the plaza near GLB there were a lot of political activists working to sign up people to vote in Cuyahoga county and make change. We saw multilple street perfomers singing and playing instruments...I always give those folks money. We passed what I think was a Nation of Islam group having a discussion on the street downtown...and videotaping it. I witnessed 4 people help an older lady get on the Healthline with her granny cart of groceries, my friend and I helped her get the cart off the bus at Playhouse square because the gap to the platform was too wide. People were riding Bird Scooters in all the neighborhoods On the rapid out the window, we saw a skateboard park full of kids at one point. Homeless asking for money...of course you'll have that. Worse than any other city? Probably less. In front of tower city? Seriously not bad. So yeah...all that looks really cool IMO to my friend
