  1. I believe Heritage Park is the little park on the west bank along Detroit Ave (the lower Detroit) by the Center Street Swing Bridge.
  2. I finally tried out Blue Habanero at W 65 & Detroit----its was really really good. Good drinks and delicious food.

  4. Last time I walked in there, it smelled really bad---like cleaner + other weird smells. I paused for a moment, then turned around and walked out---and I rarely ever do that. And i had eaten there before and it was fine. If that new smell was a constant then probably lots of people walked out and hence their troubles.... sorry to see them go as I had liked it when I did eat there.
  5. Comparing housing units 2015 to 2018, the Census Bureau estimates Cuyahoga has less in 2018 than in 2015. Is this accurate? Cleveland Metro overall though, is up. Geography 2015 2018 Change 2015-2018 Cuyahoga 619,310 617,889 -0.2% Cleveland 7-Counties 1,273,720 1,278,967 0.4%
  6. Many, many festivities this weekend celebrating 50 years since the last fire and subsequent clean-up efforts. However, there are still 7 areas of concern the Cuyahoga must meet to be removed from US EPA's list that we should not lose scope of such as Degradation of Fish Populations, Fish Tumors or Other Deformities, Degradation of Benthos, etc. I found this great list of the current status of progress made against these Beneficial Use Impairments: http://www.cuyahogaaoc.org/the-plan-and-targets.html [scroll a half page down for the list] [How did we not have a thread on the Cuyahoga? There are three for the Ohio River.]
  7. ^Interesting concept about CPD taking over the site--I'm sure they'd love that. But how sure is your source re the FBI moving? as they own the building its not a rent issue---why would they move?
  8. Downtown proper needs a few 24 hr diners as well.
  9. ^Going from 5 lanes to 2 lanes is a good thing? Have you ever driven behind someone going 25 mph when the limit is 35? if there are two lanes/direction you can go around them. In the example above in LaJolla, not only are drivers inefficiently stuck behind the person driving too slow, everyone has to wait for anyone turning left. That's inefficient, causes congestion, and adds carbon output to the environment. And, in addition to a standard 8' parking lane in one direction, you also get a 16' parking lane in one direction? what good is that?
  10. I hate the FBI compound on Lakeside as its set back and gated from the street. But I hope the FBI stays Downtown where it belongs. Secret Service has been at the 77-Rockside area for decades.....They both should be downtown somewhere.
  11. Ah! I see a lot of support for the menacing circle. I get their efficiency in some places, I just don't see it at Detroit and Lake. We need intersections like that which this city is constantly destroying. To Yabo713 who presents Dupont Circle, Washington has many many diagonals which give the city character, so an occasional circle works, plus there is greater density at Dupont Circle. Putting a circle at 75th and Detroit is about as smart as when RTA destroys buildings and activity to put a 'transit center' after obliterating the ridership that was originally there, like at 22nd and Prospect. KJP--where in NYC are these things, with the exception of Columbus Circle?
  12. Why would you want a giant circle like that in the middle of Detroit Ave? This is isn't a rural or suburban area---this is in the city and the street system works completely fine here. A circle would take out lots of property and kill the urban vibe.
  13. So they have two locations on E. 12 or they moved? If they have two, that means we have now have--with DGX--three places to buy groceries on E.12 and Chester/Superior.
  14. ^I agree. Based on data from the Brookings Report, cited above, Where jobs are concentrating and why it matters to cities and regions (https://www.brookings.edu/research/where-jobs-are-concentrating-why-it-matters-to-cities-and-regions/). The report has a map of all cities, color-coded, by 2004-15 change. I instead chose 2012 to reflect life in the post-recession world. Change in Job density in job dense areas from 2012 to 2015: Akron: -19% (see note under Seattle) Chicago: 6% Cincinnati: 15% Cleveland: 13% -- ranked 17 out of 94. Columbus: 9% Dayton: -1% Detroit: 17% Philly: 13% Pittsburgh: -6% San Francisco: 30% -- the highest on the list Seattle: -21% --the worst on the list of 94 metros. Akron was 2nd worst. Toledo: 0% All US Metros: 7% I also ranked the raw job densities for 2015 for the 94 cities. Cleveland came in at a respectable 18.

  15. ^Did the geographies used in the study period for each city stay constant from 2004 to 2015? Or is each year subject to different boundaries based on where the job agglomerations were occurring? I also ranked the raw job densities for 2015 for the 94 cities. Cleveland came in at a respectable 18.
