My Cleveland, Ohio Pics

On a Monday afternoon I had to go to Cleveland to pick up my cap and gown for graduation. These are the pictures I took while there. Enjoy!

Cleveland breaks my heart. It is so handsome architecturally but sadly where are all the people? Why is it such a ghost town? It deserves better. Why do the people that live there in there split levels, ranches and whatever home they have stay away from the downtown? Even the bridge and tunnel crowd of NYC and Philadelphia and the suburbanites of Chicago venture into the city at least on a regular basis. What is up with Cleveland?

Cleveland makes Pittsburgh look like a vibrant metropolis. Well maybe it really is one nowadays. I am starting to think that Chicago is the only Midwestern city with with streetlife. Please somebody, somewhere prove me wrong.

I can't believe these pictures were taken on a Monday afternoon... I have the same doubt of philadweller: where are the people?

Cleveland has a really nice architecture but it looks like a ghost city... It's sad 'cause the city is beautiful and it could be even more interesting if it has a more vibrant streetlife...

Anyways... Thanks for sharing, the pictures are really good!

So are you suggesting that I'm lying? The people you are referring to are in same place they are EVERY afternoon before the rush; their offices. The only time it's busy is in the morning, around lunch, and around rush hour. 9th Street is alittle more lively. We arrived between lunch and rush hour, around 2:45-3:00 p.m. Trust me, I know. I lived in Downtown most of the three years I lived there as well as worked downtown in Senator Brown's office for my internship. You should see this place on a Sunday! LOL Besides the Flats, which I didn't get to, Downtown Cleveland is pretty slow.

In Northeast Ohio, most suburbanites just work there and then go home at 5:00 p.m. I mean sure, you can hit Tower City for some light shopping, or the Warehouse District and 4th Street for a drink or dinner. And yes there are musuems and theatres, but beyond that, there isn't awhole lot there.

Cleveland has less than 500,000 (433,748 to be exact) people as of 2008. It's nothing like Chicago, but if it were, I might have stayed after graduation! LOL

And yes, I know it looks dead, but you can thank the innerlink "interior walk way", which allows you to go from the urban building to the science building without ever stepping foot outside. It's a GOD SEND in the winter!

Thanks for all those lovely photos of a very handsome city. A pity it seems so dead although I believe it has a vibrant theatre district.

Yeah, Playhouse Square is nice! I saw the Nutcracker at the Allen Theatre once, back in 2005 or 2006!

I'm not suggesting anything... I'm just telling that I can't believe the pictures were taken on a Monday afternoon, 'cause the city looks really empty (and it's not a small city, it has around 500.000 people).

I'm from a city which has a population around 300.000 people and its downtown looks much more vibrant than Cleveland's. I know it's a different situation, in Brazil we don't have this "concept" of suburbs and stuff, but still I think it's weird when I see a city like Cleveland with a few people walking on the streets (even if most of those who were walking during the rush hour are inside an office).

Yes, I know, it's very sad. Downtown Cleveland is a shell of it's former self. Alot of the building in my photos are either empty or only half occupied. Downtown has a fairly large residential population, but alot of that is centered around the Warehouse District (Not shown), not Euclid Avenue. And as I stated before, most people just work there and then hightail it to Bay Village, Parma, and Shaker Heights after 5:00. But I will say this, I ADORE the Rapid. When I lived in Lakewood, it was so nice to park my car at the 117th Street Station and take the train to Tower City and a bus up Euclid to my classes! I wish we had that in Columbus!

Been to Cleveland before but it had been awhile. It has a great set of downtown buildings for sure.
