I'm modeling this thread after a similar one that's currently active on the Chicago forum.

I'd like to hear what street intersections in Cleveland are posters' favorites, and why. (Let's try to keep it confined to within city limits, at least at first.)

I'll throw out two of mine:

West 25th/Lorain -- the West Side Market, of course, plus historic architecture, a nice little park, frequent RTA service, good bars/restaurants in the vicinity, and lots of activity in general.

West 65th/Detroit -- lots of revitalization in recent years, and again lots of activity.

Yours?

Mayfield Rd. and Euclid Ave. There’s so much new development and activity in that area now. It feels like a big city more than any other area of Cleveland IMO.

I've always liked it here, Old River Road and W 10: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4978...7i13312!8i6656

Just cool to look up and see downtown Cleveland above you and then turn around and see the river and all the bridges. The rapid going by is nice too. I like the steep hill as well. It has just always felt to me like you're entering the secret city beneath the city at that corner.

West 25th St. and Lorain/Carnegie. (West Side Market and Market District)

East Blvd. and Euclid Ave. (Heart of University Circle; Severance Hall, Wade Lagoon, etc.) Too few Clevelanders these days enter the Fine Arts Garden from Euclid Ave., as was perhaps the norm almost a century ago when street cars and not personal vehicles provided transportation for most Clevelanders.

East Blvd. and Bellflower. (Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden and Wade Oval)

Euclid and East 14th St. (Playhouse Square)

Shaker Square and North Moreland (heart of Shaker Square)

Excellent. I agree.

E55th and Broadway Ave.

Not a ton going on right now, but one of the best historic and intact built environments in the entire city. The five-point intersection makes for an interesting collection of buildings and the way the Our Lady of Lourdes church is framed by buildings and serves as a visual landmark when looking out of the intersection is really great.

W25th and Clark is another intact intersection with a lot of visual interest.

Murray Hill and Mayfield: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.5086...7i13312!8i6656

Starkweather and Thurman: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4775...7i13312!8i6656

Those are two of my favorites as well. Both need some revitalization in their retail offerings, but have good bones architecturally and look distinctly urban.

I really like E55 and Broadway too. I also really hope stuff starts happening in Slavic Village. Would have to see that intersection become like E 65 and Broadway (i.e. decimated).
