What's a flawed poll? The cities don't have to be "equal"...it's just discussing which one we like better?

^^ CTownNative, Shaker Square-Larchmere is a strong Cleveland East Side neighborhood. Most of University Circle is pretty strong, too (and getting better). There are also significant parts of Glenville, especially in and around MLK blvd/Rockefeller Park where the big old mansions are, is also pretty solid, too. A small portion of Collinwood along Lake Erie has some old mini-mansions, too.

But when you look at the Eastside as a whole,its pretty bad.Im not saying there isn't any nice/alright neighborhoods on the Eastside,there just not abundent like on the Westside.There seems to be more of a mix of incomes on the Westside.I guess I was only by the bad part of Glenville because I didn't see any Mansions.That small portion of Collinwood your talking about is Brhtenal,I don't think I spelled that right,does have alot of big houses,but you don't have to go far from there to be by some pretty bad neighborhoods.

I think Cleveland will make a come back pretty soon.Its got all of the makings of a world class city.They just need to clean up the poverty and crime.The school districts rating actually went up,from Academic Watch to Continuous Improvement.The westside really isn't that bad,theres a couple of neighborhoods that aren't that great,but nothing terrible,the eastside city limits is where alot of the worst areas are,but theres also some really historic neighborhoods on the Eastside.The arcitecture is real good on both sides.They need to replenish the houses in Cleveland,cause the houses would look real good.I know Cleveland will make a comeback through.Most cities that are struugleing do make come backs eventually,and I love my city so Im real optomistic about it.Althrough I didn't sound optomistic when I siad that 85-90% of its bad,its not that bad.

CLEVELAND STAND UP. I like the D no doubt but cleveland is the city. CSU is a real nice college, we have a lot of entertainment and a lot of diversity.

Unless I were avoiding the Apocalypse and ensuring the survival of mankind, I wouldn't move to neither city for anything. The entire Midwest is on an economic deathbed.

I think they both are losing jobs and people at alarmingly fast rates but Cleveland probably less so than Detroit, so I vote Cleveland. Plus Drew Carey and his whole "Cleveland Rocks" thing...

Default Detroit

Detroit may be under the weather for the time being, but it has so many more things that once rediscovered, rehabilitated, and remarketed it would place it on a whole never level then Cleveland could ever be. Sorry but its true. We could start with the FACT Detroit has an international border with a tunnel that takes you directly to Windsor, Canada.

I'm from Bmore so my comments are based upon my experiences in these cities, FACTS, and other sources as opposed to bias hometown views.
