  1. I think that would be the case in most states if you took away the best parts. PA for sure would probably be worse. The south and west too. It's kind of a dumb statement IMO. If you are in Appalachian Ohio, you are probably closer to resources than lot of places to get out of that cycle of poverty if you wanted to.
  2. This makes me sad, I always admired CSU for not backing down on pressure to remove controversial and offensive submissions to the Peoples Art Show. My Alma Mater, I loved CSU for that. Artist Sues Cleveland State for Censoring Trump Message on His Iconic 'The Politician: A Toy' Sculpture Lawyers representing artist Billie Lawless today filed a federal lawsuit against Cleveland State University accusing the school of violating his rights by placing a covering over the phrase "BUILD A WALL OF PUSSIE,"
  3. ^ Why is that? I feel like on residential side streets with lighter traffic, 4 way stop signs and well marked crosswalks are much more calming to traffic for pedestrians. Drivers see a green light and assume right of way, even when making right or left turns into pedestrian paths. We experienced it first hand crossing at a couple of the intersections mentioned.
  4. Along the sames lines, this summer I was showing my friend around Ohio City and noticed there are a lot of silly little traffic lights all over the neighborhood at a lot of intersections. Seems to me a lot of them could be turned into 4 way stop signs, with well striped crosswalks. It would fit the character of a residential neighborhood better and save the city money on maintenance. They seemed uneeded for how light traffic is around there. Some Examples: Bridge Ave and W. 28th Bridge Ave and W 30th Fulton and W 30th. Franklin and W 32nd
  5. Looking at the pics on the website, I think it was Alex Samoylovich. To be honest, I went with a friend, it was a terrible event, cash bar, weird people. I was pissed I could barely hear the interview because nobody would shut up. I only realized it was cedar street when he started to speak, and I own a condo in uptown so I wanted to hear what he had to say. They really are pioneers in underserved markets around Chicago. The Event was Nov 7 at the Fremont, 15 W Illinois St, Chicago, IL 60654
  6. I went to a real estate event a few weeks ago in Chicago, and they had a speaker from Cedar St, a development company in Chicago that has made a lot of money in overlooked neighborhoods in Chicago like Uptown by rehabbing old buildings. He was interviewed at the event by a professor from Columbia College and he said that they specialize in overlooked markets and that they are doing a deal in Cleveland as the next market outside of Chicago for them. The professor interviewing him was from Cleveland (originally) and expressed her concern about going into the Cleveland market. He balked at that concern. Does anyone know what that developement is? I can't seem to find any info. The company brands things as "FLATS" as well. One of the original founders was on a Bravo show "100 days of summer" and he died. Jay Michael. This is their website https://cedarst.com/
  7. I feel really bad for the State of Ohio. Becoming so irrelevant as a state nationally. They are tying the hands of its cities in so many ways. The cities are the only thing progressive about the state...and they are pushed down and underfunded. end of rant
  8. Office Revolution Expands into Columbus, Ohio Largest Teknion Dealer in Midwest to Expand into Columbus Market Chicago, IL (October 29, 2018) – Office Revolution, a leading contract furniture dealer for commercial environments, today announced its expansion into Columbus, Ohio. With locations in both downtown and suburban Chicago, Office Revolution is the largest Teknion dealer in the Midwest and the second largest in the United States.
  9. ^^The video is "not found" now. Shocking
  10. Canal Fulton is on that route, but its growth and health is definitely is driven by Akron/Canton/Jackson Township sprawl. The towpath trail though has also helped tremendously at putting it on the map. I have a friend that owns the Canal Boat lounge on the towpath, her and her husband get tons of business from the trail...they love Ralph Regula (despite being blue blood dems). To the west and south of there is mostly Amish country small towns, which seems to create a healthy micro economy of its own (kind of like Mexican enclaves in Chicago do). I have been visiting my folks at a lake for 4th of july near Mt Gilead for a few years now. From Chicago, I have been taking Route 30 instead of the Turnpike for the last 3 years, and taken a few detours to explore nearby towns in NW Ohio. Some of those small towns don't seem that bad off, like Van Wert, Bucyrus, Galion. I was surprised. Lima and Mansfield however seem too small to attract jobs and too big to be cute and quaint and are pretty rough.
  11. Most exurban suburbs in Ohio would be embarrassed by such cheap infrastructure. No sidewalks...ok it happens...but no curb or regular storm drains in a core city or inner ring burb! WTF! That place is gross. The race to the bottom is getting fierce...I'm glad Ohio is losing that race. Funniest quote on UO this year IMO
  12. You could say they are more connected now than then because of sprawl. I-77 wasn't connected to Cleveland's Willow freeway until the Valley View bridge was built in 1975. Painesville, Mentor, Avon Lake..etc probably weren't considered suburbs of Cleveland either in the 60's. Akron is not a suburb, but the urban boundries have been blurred a lot since the 60's. There used to be a lot more rural area and way less freeway connection between them. https://case.edu/ech/articles/w/willow-freeway
  13. ^It's actually really small, and the displays seemed geared toward the systems furniture, like Kitchens, Media Centers and closets...where you would design and plan it. They did have a good amount of staff to assist in that though. I guess the stand alone pieces you just look at pics in the catalog or online and order. I must say, that mall is super busy, and the stuff looked really beat up from the wear and tear. That's not normal residential usage of course and we know it's not commercial grade, but it didn't give a good impression for buyers. The hinges start to sag, finishes get scatched...etc.
