Hi there,
My husband and I are moving to Cleveland in July. He will be working at the Clinic for a year in the Sports Medicine Department. We don't have any kids and are currently living in Los Angeles, so we are used to crazy, urban life. We would love any advice on places to live. We are looking for a fun, hip area, not too far from the clinic, safe and nice. Are price range is about $1000/month for a two bedroom. Any specific apartment names would be great. Thanks so much!

I am probably not a good one to give advice, But my wife and I are moving to Cleveland also in June. Wife will be working at CC. I have done a lot of research in the area and spoke with many people from Cleveland. We have decided on either Shaker Heights or University Heights. Both appear to be safe and close to the clinic and univesity circle.

If you are looking for safe and close to the area don't think about Shaker and University Heights. Send me a line at jonz357@yahoo.com and I'll send you some infomation on some great places to live. 20 years ago those neighborhoods where the place to be, but if you are looking for a new Cleveland what we are calling (CLeveland+) contact me.

^ Not sure what that's about.

Shaker Square is a nice neighborhood with plenty of retail/dining/entertainment amenities, and it's very close to the Clinic. University Circle (and Little Italy) are also great areas, as is the Coventry area of neighboring Cleveland Heights (a suburb.)

The hippest areas of town are probably the Warehouse District and Gateway in downtown (and I know there are apartments that can be had for less than $1,000 a month.) The only name that's coming to me at the moment is Reserve Square, but I know there are others. The two other hip neighborhoods are Ohio City and Tremont, which are across the river from downtown. Driving to the Clinic wouldn't take very long (no more than 20 minutes, I'd imagine,) and there's a train stop (rapid transit) near the Westside Market on W. 25th street. Downtown, the #6 bus goes up and down Euclid Avenue, there's a red line stop in Tower City, and there's a bus rapid transit project dubbed the Silver Line that will run past the Clinic from downtown. It will be fully operational by the end of 2008.

I hope that helps, and welcome to Cleveland!

Shaker Square has apartments nearby, there are also lots of apartment choices in Shaker Heights that have good access to the Rapid and shopping (see City of Shaker Heights - Home to get the names of good companies and landlords).
Good luck!

Default apartments

Thanks you guys! It seems so hard to find a nice place that is reasonable. If anyone has exact names of apartment complexes, that would be great!

I would recommend Tremont, Downtown, or Lakewood. I especially think that a apartment or condo in the Warehouse district would be a good fit. Sorry, I don't know of any specific names, I'm sure a quick search will lead you in the right direction.

Neela-

I've heard lots of good things about Stonebridge, especially about the safety of the building. Negatives I've heard are the apartments' walls can be kind of thin (although this was from someone who had never lived in an apartment before) and that the parking spaces are sort of small. I would place it at about a 10 minute walk to downtown, and 5 minute walk to W. 25 (the main drag of the Ohio City neighborhood, and about 10 minutes from the Rapid station.) Driving would get you downtown in no time at all, as would the Rapid (the red line has a stop at W. 25th and Lorain,) and getting to the Clinic would take about 20 minutes either by car or train.

You might want to post a thread over at the relocation forum of Urbanohio.com. I know for a fact there's a woman who lives in Stonebridge that posts there, and there are some other people who live downtown (E. 4th, warehouse district, etc.)

Oh, and for what it's worth, East Fourth Neighborhood - Cleveland, OH has info on the apartment buildings on E. 4th street- unit sizes, price ranges, amenities, etc.
