Anyone been to or know anything about the Buckland Museum in Old Brooklyn?

 

https://bucklandmuseum.org/buckland-gallery/


Seems like an interesting / quirky addition to the neighborhood. 
 

EDIT: I see the last few questions have gone unanswered. Perhaps this isn’t the best place to post this...

 

Since we're on the next page, here is my question again.

Where are some free/cheap places to do remote coding work on the near west side? Coffee shops/co-working spaces etc? Wifi required obv.

I really liked Phoenix Coffee in Ohio City and Loop Records in Tremont too. Hon. mention for the Rising Star in Hingetown, but outlets were scarce.

It used to be the wiccan store/museum that was in Tremont on w14th roughly across from Bac, (nevermind, now trio), I mean the empty resraurant.

I think that's where the fire was at this morning.

Terrapin Coffee - it’s small but good coffee and next to Tremont Animal Clinic so you’ll have great pet watching as well. Added bonus is Bon Cleveland bakery uses part of the space as a prep kitchen.

All - 

 

My wife and I just ditched cable (as Spectrum was costing us $173 a month) - we kept the internet, but want some advice on what alternatives are out there and if anyone has recommendations. 

 

The only times I watch TV, really, is sporting events, i.e. Browns games, bowl games, March Madness, Tribe games. 

 

I already have HBOGO and Netflix, and want a provider that can give me at least a limited sports package. Thanks!

Obviously an good outdoor antenna for network TV will be necessary.  Some people like SlingTV because you can get ESPN. I am not sure about Tribe games, I mooch off of a friend's cable account for FoxSports GO.  I'm not sure if it is available as a stand alone app.

We have been doing a similar experiment and YouTubeTV has been pretty good on sports coverage.  The coverage is tied to the local market, so if a game is on local TV, it will be on there.  I was worried about buffering speed and lagging, but so far it has been fine.  It is $49 a month, so cheaper than cable.

Hulu live has been fantastic. Unfortunately it is now going up to 54.99 a month (58 with taxes).  But you get all the espns, big ten network, fox sports (including Ohio), and so forth. It’s like 75 channels total. You also get access to Hulu w/commercials which is great for certain tv shows.

It seems to me that the cable cutting was initially a great cost savings, but now all the streaming services provide the same content...so cost as much as cable!

Has anyone noticed that in the last six months, many Uber and Lyft drivers are now from out of state? I've been keeping track and I would estimate 75% of cars with Georgia and Florida plates also have glowing rideshare signs in their windows.

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.

Obviously not quite the same, but I used to do airbnb at my place and had a guy that would come up from Columbus to Cleve just to drive because (in his mind) the increased fees were worth the hassle. Echoing @metrocity I hate ridesharing when folks aren't from the area and can barely follow a GPS on their phone (when it works). There's one thing to be said about taxi drivers they generally know where they're going and are familiar with peculiarities- if only they got with the 21st Century and all accepted cards/paypal and were more transparent with their fares...

What can anyone tell me about Cleveland’s only built suspension bridge ?  Sidaway bridge?

 

https://www.facebook.com/Save-the-Sidaway-Bridge-101111814992689/

 

I personally have never heard it...??

 

Cleveland Historical has a great article on it.  I stumbled upon this article a couple years ago - that was the first I'd ever heard of it.

https://clevelandhistorical.org/items/show/762

 

"It still spans Kingsbury Run, connecting Cleveland’s Kinsman Road neighborhood to the city’s historic Jackowo Polish neighborhood. But no one uses the Sidaway Bridge anymore. Not since the 1966 Hough Riots when someone tore out planking from the walkway and attempted to set the bridge on fire. Shortly afterwards, Cleveland officials closed the bridge, and for fifty years it has waited patiently to resume its original purpose of bringing the people from these two neighborhoods together, rather than continuing to keep them apart.

 

"It was not the first Sidaway Bridge. That one–the longest wooden bridge in Cleveland history–was a massive trestle bridge that stretched 675 feet across and 80 feet above the Kingsbury Run, connecting the Jackowo Polish neighborhood on the south side with the then largely Hungarian Kinsman Road neighborhood on the north. It was built as a pedestrian or “foot” bridge in 1909 by the Tom Johnson administration at the urging of three citizen groups from the two neighborhoods who believed, according to a Plain Dealer editorial at the time, that connecting the two communities–then largely white and ethnic–with a bridge would contribute to their mutual commercial and general welfare."

I didn't think it even had a deck anymore. Does it?

The deck is gone. You can still technically climb on it if you wear gloves and cling to the rusty beams on the side and carefully step, but I've only ever gone partway across before going back. I know at least one person who crossed the whole thing like that, so at the least, it's somewhat stable.
