Cleveland and Detroit aren't the lower Midwest and have a different dialect called inland north which is unique to the Great Lakes region dontchaknow. Milwaukee, Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit sound more like Minneapolis than the Lower Midwest. Indianapolis, Columbus, Kansas City, Cincinnati and St. Louis don't sound the same. Please quit your trolling. Your made up regional definitions and ridiculous arguments are getting quite old. Cleveland had more in common with Boston and Philadelphia than Chicago...what planet are you from? For a native Clevelander you sure don't know your own city.

And you know anything about the city? Cleveland has lots of East Coast connections, not only in terms of immigrant populations and historically being part of Connecticut, but also because Cleveland was an important strategic shipping hub between the East Coast and what was then considered the West. There is a reason that Rockefeller split his time between the East Coast and Cleveland. If anything we sound more like people from Buffalo or Rochester than people from Chicaahhgo, Wisgonsin, or Minnesooooota.

So does Minneapolis and St. Paul and every other large city in the midwest. They were all founded by people from the East Coast moving west. That is kind of how the United States happened...

It's pretty obvious that Cleveland has many more connections with the East Coast than Minneapolis, or most other midwest cities, being that it's hmmm, the furthest East metro, 60 miles from the PA border.

Cleverfield, you exhibit a mania that borders on mental illness. Nobody in their right mind puts this much effort into trolling another city on the internet. Seek help, for your own sake.

Not really much effort put in. Your arguments are pretty easy to rebuff.

There ya go, some reasonable arguments, at least you didn't try to claim that Minneapolis has the best cultural attractions in the midwest.

What were the cultural attractions in Cleveland? I don't have time to review the other 38 pages of this thread but it seems like you'll gladly type them out again.

Haha, as I suspected all along, you don't even know what the city has to offer, yet you automatically assume that your city is the best next to Chicago.

FYI, we have:

-The Rock Hall
-The Cleveland Orchestra/Severance Hall
-One of the largest, best endowed, and most thoroughly encyclopedic art museums in the country
-Playhouse Square (9 beautifully restored 1920's theaters, 2nd largest theater district in the country, now home to the world's largest outdoor chandelier)
-A science museum/NASA museum
-A natural history museum (home to scientists who discovered Lucy, as well as important dinosaur, and hominid fossils)
-The Cleveland Botanical Gardens
-Lake View Cemetary, burial place of President Garfield, John Rockefeller, and many other famous people
-Many smaller theaters scattered around the city
-A brand new museum of contemporary art
-Many ethnic enclaves, including one of the country's best Little Italys, and the ethnic food and stores that go along with them
-A WWII era submarine/museum
-A great lakes freighter turned into a museum
-The West Side Market, one of the oldest and best indoor markets in the country
-National architectural gems, such as the Terminal Tower, and the Old Arcade
-Restaurants by well-known chefs like Michael Symon, and many others
-Numerous Hollywood movies that film here each year, including major ones like The Avengers and Captain America
-3 pro sports teams that are actually entertaining to watch
