  1. Couldn't agree more. Just merging the schools themselves could help push even more families out of both neighborhoods. I can't see anyone who would willingly choose to have their child go to a school merged between kids from both Glenville and Collinwood. There would be fights everyday with kids claiming their street is the hardest in the city. "Oh, you're from E. 145th? Well, I'm from E. 117th- your block ain't s!$%". Everyday.
  2. ^^^That's jumping the gun, isn't it? SW having a larger presence could mean multiple buildings, like the campus mentioned in one of KJPs articles. Though I would love for a 1000 ft building on Public Square, I don't think anyone would be against SW filling in the Parking Lot District, finally once and for all. But I agree with you that unless Cleveland can churn out several more multi-billion dollar companies, that SW's development could be the only potential 1000+ft building for the foreseeable future.
  3. ^Or even better... when Obama held the G7 at his own hotel for profit? And then got 100 patents granted by China? And had his real estate holdings bailed out by Saudis? And offered foreign countries quid pro quo? And spent $200 million dollars to play golf?
  4. ^Constitutional crisis @YABO713???? What happens if this letter being pushed by Graham is signed by every Republican in the Senate?
  5. ^I saw that on the news last night- I would members of the group would get this guy back home. I wish someone would have told him that though they may still come around, they left St. Clair a loooooooooong time ago!
  6. Penalties and turnovers. This game was winable.
  7. So... when will the Ambassador be going to jail? Seems like open contempt, regardless of who ordered it.
  8. I can understand why the suburban style housing was pushed for by Fannie Lewis; I believe her intent was to draw the black middle class back to the neighborhood. Whatever progress was made in that regard was halted by subprime lending and the Foreclosure Crisis. Some of the older folks in the neighborhood call the section with the most suburban style housing (between Hough and Chester) Hough Heights Folks from Cleveland would understand the name. Personally, I don't mind it. The neighborhood is much larger than the stretch between Hough and Chester, which also has some very nice historic housing stock. If the housing market truly comes back around in the area, there will be plenty of houses which could be rehabbed along with vacant lots which could be built upon. That's part of the reason I'll have to go back out and take more pics- the neighborhood's physical building stock is pretty diverse. It's just that the suburban style housing is the most visible to folks driving through along Chester.
  9. Just a few pics of the neighborhood I took yesterday... Hough retains some gems though the neighborhood still needs to work to draw in new residents. The neighborhood has some extremes- both in wealth and poverty, but also has pride and history few neighborhoods in the city (or in Ohio) can match. For those who don't know... at one point the neighborhood had 50,000 residents; the physical build of some of the historic housing and apartment stock point to that history. A little bit of Cleveland's own Bobby Womack for this mix of photos should do To start off, here's an example of the neighborhood's historic architecture. This rowhouse is located close to where Lamont Ave. dead ends, close to Ansel Rd.- one of my personal favorite in the city And an example of one of too many houses in the neighborhood that needs some TLC. This one is right next door to the rowhouses with vacant lots on both sides- hopefully someone will take this on as a rehab project: New apartments going up at the corner of Mt. Sinai and Ansel Rd: This is at the corner of Newton and E. 97th: Singles and duplexes on Cory Ave. of E. 79th This one is close to Mt. Sinai and E. 105th... One of only a few remaining storefront retail stores on Hough Ave., around the E. 90s... One of several apartment buildings- around Hough Ave. on E. 91st... And directly across the street from it... I truly hope the market for apartment rentals comes back for this section of the city. There's no way another one of these should be lost to demolition. The neighborhood has lost several already. A few lots down the properties go back to single family houses- those that remain are gems: These are across the street from the Maltz Performing Arts Center- I could only imagine how many more were lost to demo over the years along this stretch... The once busy intersection of Crawford and Hough Ave... A highrise on Addison and Wade Park... The African American Museum of Cleveland- on Crawford. Currently seeking funding for renovation and rehab... A mixed-use storefront on Wade Park close to Giddings- this one has been in bad shape for a long time. One of the houses which sits in what use to be Little Hollywood- formerly once one of the densest parts of the city. There are several of these between Hough Ave. and Lexington:: Another newer build- this one on Lextington: I made my way over to League Park- talk about history... The tickethouse- now a museum: Pictures don't do it justice- this is a truly underutilized gem. The Fatima Center- directly across the street from the tickethouse: I couldn't imagine a time where someone could live in the city- directly across the street from a major league ballpark. Well, it existed. This is one of the houses where someone lived and could've walked out of his or her door to watch a game: Quite literally, though this view would have been blocked by stands back then: The building on the other side the Baseball Heritage Museum on E. 66th and Lexington: There's too many things that I missed while I was out taking pics. More to come soon...
  10. Any drop in manufacturing could hit legacy cities in the Midwest harder than most others. Cleveland's economic numbers show the Manufacturing Sector employment retracting, beginning in May of this year. https://www.bls.gov/eag/eag.oh_cleveland_msa.htm Cleveland's overall regional economy hasn't been affected as of yet (thank God) as it's no longer centered on Manufacturing, and is still growing year-over-year.
  11. Talk about a hidden business... I never noticed that All Auto and Tire- ever. Not a loss which will hurt.
  12. Beat me to it- the development on Mt. Sinai is going up quickly. Thanks for the pic!
