I will be doing more exploring here. Toronto has ravines, too but not the hills like Cincy. I had no idea about the hills until I began exploring , etc but there are more than 7. I had to smile when some one on a post did not know the seven hills reference was from Rome originally.

I know the east /west side thing exists in Cleveland , too, but it goes have a geographical division as well as the cultural ...plus downtown is in the middle.
It amazes me that people say they have never been to the other side of their own city.
The neighborhood is just called Westwood. You maybe be talking about the Fleetwood Mansion which is a huge property that sets back off the street.

Believe it or not they sort of actually do. It's on a sports forum site.

I should have guessed! Maybe maplelady should have a gander over there.

There seems to be many small green space. Are these ravines ?
Here's my simple anecdotal observation, so attackers sharpen your weapons.
A bit of context- I moved to the Cincy area two years ago and live near the I-71/I-275 cross. I LOVE the mobility which those freeways provide.
So now westside. PROS- fairly rich history. Scenic beauty of I-74 is probably my favorite in the area. CONS- I've made two journeys westside and not looking to return. (1) was to Elder HS, and the roads around there are too hilly for my taste. I've lived on mountains, so I'm over that curiousity. I value function over form in this case. And no main arteries. I felt claustrophobic (as a driver), same thing I don't like about Mt. Adams. (2) was to Lasalle HS, and the roads there are "secondary road hell", Colerain Ave. I think it was, cars tight like sardines, red-light after red-light, feeling "stuck" the deeper-in we went. Nice people in both places, for sure, felt like family in some ways.

Cleveland is very much like Cincinnati in its east-west split. In fact, it might be even more pronounced.
As a Cleveland East Sider, you're darn right...it's very pronounced lol...except for Lakewood, Ohio City, and Edgewater Park, I never would go any further to Cleveland's West Side and no way in hades would I live in it lol...
It seems to me the East Side here has more money in it and seemingly always has.

Years ago, in the Plain Dealer Magazine (RIP), around the time the book "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" was published, there was a little column about what real Clevelanders do or don't do, and one of them was:

Real Clevelanders never cross the Cuyahoga.



Why would you want to go to Edgewater when you could go to Headlands? It's much nicer ...
