Number streets run north & south. The numbers get bigger as you move away from downtown. The streets that run east & west & southeast & southwest kind of radiate outward from downtown, sort of like spokes in a wheel, with downtown being the hub. The east west street's address numbers correspond to the numbered streets. For the north south streets the address numbers get larger as you move away from the lake. If I remember correctly Harvard Ave was the 4000 block south, and Brookpark Road was the 5000 block south. Then there are a few streets that were just put there to confuse everyone.

I understand it. Pretty simple I think. Gets a little confusing when you get to Berea, though. They do thier own thing out there.

Canton and Massillon each have a numbered street system. And, to make things confusing, Canton's numbered streets run east-west, and Massillon's numbered streets run north-south, like Cleveland's.

At least they don't overlap. Massillon's streets go up to 27th, to the east. This road is AKA Jackson Ave. Jackson Ave./27th street is where Canton's numbered streets stop. So, theoretically, there is an intersection of 27th and 12th. But, if you're on the Massillon side, I guess it would be known as the intersection of Hankins Rd, and 27th street. And, if you're on the Canton Side, it would be the intersection of Jackson Ave. and 12th street.

Ah, the departures from the grid system! A number of what are now suburbs were villages first, and created a street system that worked for them. In Berea, it's because of the quarry and the university, which each had roads built around them, not so much by plan as by need.

Even the grid system set up by the original city fathers wasn't perfectly north-south-east-west, because they aligned the downtown streets with the lakefront, which skewed everything for the ages.

We lived in Cleveland about 30 yrs ago. Is the downtown loop still there? The department stores I remember are Higbees and May Co. I remember the subway was accessable through to the bottom of Higbees and went all the way to the airport. Has this changed much and would this be a good place to retire to. Current live in Florida and cannot wait to leave here. Any input would be great.

Retire to Ohio? Isn't it supposed to the the other way around?
hahaha
Not sure what you mean by "The Downtown loop".
Higbees and May Co. are long gone but there is a "mega mall" in The Terminal Tower now. It's called "Tower City". You will not recognize that place at all it is so radially different (in a great way) then it was 30 years ago. The "subway" does still run between there and the airport.
It is certainly affordable to retire here.
Other then the weather I cannot think of one reason to tell someone not to retire here.
Although I am sure someone on this forum has a million reasons why you shouldn't and will be along shortly to share them.
lol

thanks for the feedback. are there places to live downtown that aren't terribly expensive. we want to ditch the car (one less expense) and be able to walk just able everywhere, grocery, drug store, etc. Public transportation is fine for the little amount of time we would actually use it. And I do so love the winters. Our first year there it snowed on Thanksgiving day. I was so excited. Also, are there any neighborhoods we should shy away from? Thanks for all the help.
