Are you Serious?

When I went to Cleveland, I had a great time, and I really like the urban feel and vibrancy that downtown has to offer. It is a shame that people in Cleveland are so negative about their city, because it has so much to offer over so many other cities across the country.

People don't even realize that every city has urban decay, and has its problems. Its what major cities go through, keyword there being major. People in Cleveland just seem to harp on theirs, and can't be upbeat about anything. A lot of people on here do it too. I look forward to a turnaround in the country's economy and the many awesome projects Cleveland has lined up.
Thank You, Your tha man! or Lady! lol

Finally some positivity about C-Town, you speak the truth.

Yes. I think the cardboard boxes in shades of off-white, expansive parking lots, strip plazas, and wide highways make for some of the ugliest landscape around. But that's just my opinion. Aesthetically, I much prefer small towns, rural areas, and urban areas to the suburbs.

youngstown, toledo, springfield, lorain, elyria, east liverpool..... these cities have had the most economic struggles and have had half of thier population leave because off all the steal jobs have left you can pick and other midwest state in the union and they will have all the same issues...... parts of east cleveland are nasty but cleveland as a whole metro i actually think is nice and unique

I would say Youngstown. I visit family in that area a few times a year and it's really depressing... like it's stuck in the past.

Not to push buttons but Lorain and cinn city are preety bad. Not to mention our crown and jewel Columbus. I am born and raised in Elyria (29yrs.) and personally love this city. There is a huge fiancial opposition here witch I love. U got ur $250,000 and your $35.000 reality here. Just goes to show the cultural clash within a small area witch I think makes this town so great. Everybody can hate and dis Elyria but we have an awesome sports program, city schools are not bad(overall ranking) close to theveland, not a misspelling. It's a REAL town, not a fake, everythings perfect kinda town. I personally would NEVER want my children raised in a FAKE kinda town only knowing the nice and perfect kind of life then to get smacked in the face hard by life as they venture forward in the world. Also, take it from somebody who lived and was raised the "hardknock" life, more richy/plusher towns just means more harsher drugs in the schools. Not to mention the availabilty of them.

Columbiana? What the hell. It seems like a cute place.

I second the vote on East Cleveland.

Be positive, and look at the positives. I realize there are few of them in today's economy, but that can be said everywhere. I have been all over the country, and Cleveland has so much to offer, but people fail to realize this or JUST DON'T WANT TO...
For every positive there is a negative, it is called reality.

If you choose to focus only on the positive side, that is your perogative.

Personally, I prefer to see the whole picture.

You are criticizing another poster for stating a fact? Maybe you need to take a look at your own attitude?

I personally think Columbus is a bit plain. I thought they could have done a better job designing their skyscrapers, especially for having them so spread out, it could have really made the city interesting to look at. I feel both Cincinnati and Cleveland skylines have more character to them.
