^ btw, I think RTA dropped the Great Northern/North Olmsted Red Line extension, as opposed to the NIMBY protest/drop of the Red Line by Berea.

I understand Lakewood is served by access to the Red Line; so is Brookpark, East Cleveland etc. The poster stated stations in Lakewood; there aren't any.
No big deal. I guess what this highlights is how badly planned the Red Line is in general.

Bloomington, Minnesota has what to do with Cleveland, Ohio?

And actually, two red line rapid stations are within Lakewood's city limits.

No, the 117th and Triskett stations are in Cleveland, not Lakewood.

Who else feels Cleveland is going to be the Chicago of the early 21st century? Maybe not SUCH an explosive city, but it's getting there!

I'm proud, guys. Keep it up.
No you are talking about Toronto Canada not Cleveland Ohio being a Mini-Chicago Illinois, however Detroit Michigan is a Mini-Cleveland of the 21st Century if they do a lot of infill.

Toronto is not a "mini-Chicago." Toronto more than holds its own as a major world city.

Agree. The only thing Chicago has over Toronto is Michigan Avenue.... oh and good pizza.
Other then that I would say Toronto trounces Chicago.

Not to slight Toronto's downtown shopping districts, but I've never seen anything like the Michigan Mile in a downtown area outside of New York City.

Toronto has better 'dance clubs' than Chicago and Cuban cigars

Cleveland probably will never match the sheer number of great, walkable neighborhoods that Chicago has... But in comparing neighborhoods, some of Cleveland's areas can match the diversity and vibrancy of some of Chicago's best... Like Ohio City right now -- don't tell me that, say, Bucktown or Wicker Park are any more divserse and exciting as Ohio City ... or even Coventry, Little Italy (and its emerging neighbor University Circle/Uptown)... And even though Cleveland areas like Shaker Square, Tremont and Detroit Shoreway are a little more understated, they are still exciting, walkable and interesting enough to attract a lot of young professionals ... from other cities, too.
