I was here when the Flats was nothing but Steel Mills and factories and watched the transformation from industry to a nightlife mecha and am still seeing transformation...Ohio City, the Westside Market, the museums, the ethinic communities, and best of all on gameday you can walk into any bar and experience the love that Clevelanders have for their sports teams. I love the feeling of "community" and "family" here. Florida sucked!! I am home and I am never leaving. Cleveland, I forgive you for not being the perfect city BUT you are the perfect City for me!

That is soooo wonderful....I feel the same way about where I am now..Im moving back to cleveland in the summer..I always tell people the grass is NOT always greener on the other side...I learned that the hard way

Are they doctors or candy-stripers? My aunt and uncle (both practitioners) really enjoy working there.

CCF is not in the 'hood. Neither is UH, University Circle, Severance Hall, Little Italy, Coventry, etc.

Coventry is not 'in the city proper', which is what the post you responded to was talking about. It's in Cleveland Heights.

UH and Severance are in University Circle.

So your list seems kind of padded.

Yeah every single place you named besides CCF is not even in Cleveland. CCF is in the hood. Would you move your family to a house on say E. 85th, off a side street opposite Chester?

Uhh because I still love and support my city and try to find positives unlike you so don't waste your time saying that...Thank You
I think it's just that the Comments section of online newspaper articles tends to attract all the whiners and complainers. Their negativity doesn't necessarily represent the attitude of the city populace as a whole. Nor is it just a Cleveland thing... I see the same thing going on in the Chicago online newspaper articles.

I've visited Cleveland many times and it's not such a bad place. I think the area's self-image really took a hit when the Cuyahoga River caught on fire. The river is much, much cleaner now.

Cleveland hasn't been a boom town for years, and there are probably a lot of people in and around Cleveland who remember rosier times. However, that's true of many other cities in the region. It's just that Cleveland became the butt of some jokes that are not so true these days.

Cleveland sports fans have had their hearts broken many times. Sooner or later some team in Cleveland is going to win a championship, and the celebration is going to be fantastic; people in northeast Ohio have been waiting.

Okay, I have mentioned before that I plan to relocate to Cleveland from Portland OR. My plans are beginning to take shape and I hope to move this coming fall. People's negativity is just their opinions. And I know some pretty positive people who like their city.

Just as Cleveland is underrated, Portland is overrated, over-hyped and achingly disappointing to many who move here based on the overblown description of the city that somehow gets spread around.

My advice to anyone making decisions on a place to live is to check out what you need in order to meet the necessities and amenities you are looking for. If a place suites you, it isn't important what others may think of it. Some people will always like a place and some won't.

To quote Simon and Garfunkle, "One man's ceiling is another man's floor."

the only area that a poster listed not in CLEVELAND is Coventry Road , and it sure is not the Coventry Road I know from the late 1970's to the mid 1980's,as a kid .
When my family would shop at a grocery store on Coventry, (they felt the local grocery store was nolonger safe ,( Buckeye-Woodland) near
St. Lukes Hospital , or Hell Cromwell Avenue .
For the last couple of decades people have ran , it is easier , to do that,
If you feel like you do , get involved, You can't ? because you are not a
Resident of The City of Cleveland ? Become one .
Now living across the river , in an area some would say are you kidding?
noway ! My dad said , son put bars on your windows, protect your family.
I never ,ever ever had a problem, in 20 something years .
I know and talk to my neighbors
P.S bought my house way young
with the intent that my kids would not attend public school ,
anyway , Like I did ( Our Lady of Peace , and Benedictine )the lower cost of living where I was and still , allowed us to send the
the kids to a school of our choice and it was not a hardship .
