CLEVELAND Photo Tour (July 2010), Part 4: Warehouse District, Tower City
Well, better late than never, I guess, here is the fourth and final part of my trip to Cleveland last month. This part includes Tower City Center, the Warehouse District, and the second ball game.
In case you missed the other parts:

Started out @ Tower City, Downtown Cleveland's Enclosed Retail Complex
View of the Flats and the Cuyahoga River...
Key Tower peaking out behind Tower City
Hard Rock Cafe, where I ate supper, I figured I would eat here since I did go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Inside the Hard Rock...
Interior of Tower City...
Terminal Tower ceiling detail...
Terminal Tower lobby... the observation deck was open from 12-4 pm that day and I arrived at 3:00 pm only to find out they had stopped selling tickets at 2:30 pm, which was a bit frustrating. I was never told and I never read ANYWHERE that you had to get tickets in advance or by 2:30 pm for this and if the observation deck is open from 12-4, why do you STOP selling tickets at 2:30? I guess I should have asked, oh well, what can you do?
Downtown from the Warehouse District
Cleveland's Warehouse District...
RTA Waterfront Line Tracks
Many of the old factories in this area have been converted to condos or lofts...
Carl B. Stokes Federal Court House Building
Back of Progressive Field
Looking on I-90 towards Toledo from Progressive Field
I like the shots better from up here, a clear central view of the field and awesome skyline shots...
Downtown from the upper part of the Stadium
Clouds started to roll in...
In the 9th inning, it began to rain, thus delaying the game and forcing me to go back to my hotel room for the night, as I had to leave early the next day for home
Many people left, I stuck around for a while to see if they could get the game started again...
But no luck... Tigers lost the game, 2-1, thus losing BOTH GAMES I saw in Cleveland...
It was a great trip, though. Hope to make it back someday! Hope y'all enjoyed my pictures!
I'm a kind of person feeling like living back in the 1950s, one who favors and enjoys the Golden-age, rust-belt cities of Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Detroit, and the Gothic skylines of New York and Philadelphia. In my eye, they have more character, soul, and history to be pictured than today's world-class, cosmopolitan, and sprawling cities.
