Cleveland: Random Photos

Recommended Posts

I agree. The view from NCH is the best view we have, definitely a big city feel. That's why it's so important that we make sure there are enough public spaces included in whatever development goes on the lakefront property. If we can ever get the land bridge together, imagine walking from the harbor up through the mall with the city in the background, very nice.

Right. And expanded hours plus accessible outdoor displays & events by the Rock Hall and Science Center would make NCH a much much more lively place.

This is probably the ONLY photo by Aerial Agents that I don't like.  Wade Lagoon is an exceptionally beautiful and serene place in the midst of the city; and this photo, taken from a height too high, makes it look cramped and walled-in.

But, but.... The area surrounding it looks very East Coastish or even European.

This was my view in Old Brooklyn the other morning - Ben Franklin Community Garden - it's massive and a wonderful place! Hard to believe the garden only has 10ish days left 😞  (my peppers disagree with this deadline...)

Why were there only 10 days left for the garden?

It's just the end of the season on behalf of the Garden Committee and CDC, it helps give enough time to mow everything down, seed, and prepare for the winter. Fun fact, up until a few years ago (maybe more than a 'few'), very little was done to manage the nutrients in the garden - now cover crops are planted and techniques for overwintering and whatnot have changed (they've also added raised beds for fall/spring planting - mostly garlic for me which helps extend the season a bit). If you haven't been this year, last day is this Saturday! hah

 

Edit1- didn't mean to make it sound like it was going away forever! After re-reading my comment I can see how it may have come off that way hah

 

Edit2- I put together a map of the garden last year, it kind of gives scale to the place: https://veganbrisket.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=76c95291276c4e17a2cc7b65bb1edc77

In case folks don't venture over to port news on here, just wanted to X-post a picture of the navy ship that's currently in town! USS Indianapolis.

Went to the Browns/Bills game this weekend, had a great time at the stadium and Muni lots before! 

 

Some people were jerks during and after the game, but 99.7% of people we're amazing ambassadors to my adopted city of Cle.

My friend and former Sun News coworker Roger Vozar took this wonderful picture from Euclid, looking west along the Lake Erie shoreline toward downtown Cleveland on this pretty, sunny late-fall day.

Not the sharpest, but here are a couple I took yesterday from Metro on a dreary day. The real narrow one is from the 7th floor (and I tried, and think I got, both the tower cranes from Church and State (far left??) and Lumen).

 

The one with the houses in the foreground is from the 11th floor.

Lovely evening in Downtown tonight. Even though Tower City is being cleared out of retailers, it's still a very pretty place at this time of year.

The federal courthouse is definitely an underappreciated building imo, especially from an angle like this, great eye!

I wonder if the Federal courthouse would look better at night with some kind of exterior lighting?

 

Edit: And @MayDay beat me to the punch above! Would love to see those photos. 


🤦‍♂️  Others on here (@MayDay?) can correct me if I’m misremembering, but the Stokes building DOES have some great exterior lighting that was utilized for a short time after its construction. However, the GSA decided to stop illuminating the building because of either A) Cost savings, or B) Pressure from groups trying to minimize bird strikes. I’m fuzzy on the whole story. 
 

But yes, it’s a beautiful and under appreciated building that deserves to be lit up once again.

Hung out around the industrial valley today. Here's a handful of photos from my walk. It was a tad hazy so not great for city shots, but I'll be back soon enough 🙂

I can often see this type of downtown sunset/dark clouds to the east scene out of my window, but it's five miles away and by the time I could get near downtown, the sun would have set. So I appreciate this photo very much......

Just gotta say the past few days' sunsets have been on point (and great for biking...)! Now it seems we're back to grey lol

I must say, sometimes it feels too hip for a hipster but Coffee Coffee Coffee/Sixth City Cycles is a great spot to sit and read/chill out ($3 bottomless coffee is nice too!).

 

If you're in Old Brooklyn, it's definitely worth a stop.

I woke up this morning and there was a bright object in the sky, rarely seen in Cleveland this time of the year.   So i decided to go burn up $100 bills in a small aircraft.  Thought you might all enjoy my view of Cleveland on approach to Burke.

Was just going through my google memories and here's a shot I took in 2018. I wish I had my good camera at the time!
