I'd choose Cleveland, if all things are equal where your career is concerned. There's more to do, and it sounds like you miss it from everything you've written here.

And you pretty clearly tried to say that the growth was artificial, so whatever. I don't expect you to admit you were wrong about anything.

The job growth didn't matter too much, as I said. Unemployment didn't rise, but instead fell to one of the lowest rates in the country. So yeah, Columbus didn't have the highest job growth, no denying that. But it just didn't matter.
You take this personally. That's not good.

My wife and I picked Columbus over Cleveland when in the same boat a few years back. We had job offers in both cities. The cities are fairly close by (2 hours) but couldn't be any more different. My subjective feelings on both cities:

Cleveland definitely has an "east coast" feel to it. Much more history to it. I found Cleveland to be a very depressing place though. Did not like it at all.

Columbus is completely Midwestern. People seemed much more outgoing and happier to me and Columbus seemed to have much more energy to me. I've been very happy here. We settled down in Upper Arlington which is a tremendous suburb.

Just my thoughts. The best advice I can give is visit both places and see where you feel most at home as the two cities couldn't be any more different than they are.

As you stated, ''a few years back''. Central Cleveland is not the same place it was a few years ago; major momentum going on as you may know. However, you landed in Columbus and seem quite happy, which is good and all that really matters.

Columbus and Cleveland have and always will be completely different cities and I agree, Cleveland does have an ''eastern'' feel to it. People try to say that Columbus and especially with Cleveland and Cincinnati, are all alike. Cleveland is not like either and I would think Columbus is not much like Cincinnati as well. All three C cities are different which makes Ohio a unique state.
