Cleveland's MOCA looks very strikingly όber-modern, and its unique shape really fits its name as a fast-emerging art museum. I sense that the exterior is not made of glass at all (although its walls provide shadows and reflections to vehicles passing through the structure); I then wonder what it's made of because that brick design adds to the classiness and coolness of the structure. On top of it, on your fourth pic (with a Mayfield street sign), what are those white and grey buildings with just a bunch of vertical and horizontal lines that are inserted nearly at random? I'll tell you: your threads just provokes more questions than answers, and I'd say that Cleveland is indeed a very art-friendly city. Lovely!

I sense that the rendition of Little Italy in Cincinnati looks very different from the Little Italy in San Francisco... I could point out the differences very easily (structures, road widths, and the wonderful mural that depicts the story of Italians in the United States), but I can sense quite a lot of similarities too, including outdoor seating (patio) for restaurants and bars, a splendid church, and of course, a statue of Christopher Columbus. I really like the fact that despite the triangular-roofed buildings that seem to be a theme, those businesses thrive for a long time, with plenty of regular customers dining and relaxing while watching other people and vehicles pass by, and I sense that Brescia holds something special for Cincinnati: are those two sister cities or is it just that the gate was donated by the City of Brescia in Italy?

Fabulous shots yet again! Makes me want to head back to Little Italy in my own patch!

Little Italy looks charming and delightful.

I love university campuses; they often provide one of the nicest areas of a city - architecturally and otherwise: the presence of students and their youthful energy is exciting.

Yeah, Case Western has a lovely campus. I thought about going to school there but quickly changed my mind once I saw the price! lol

Cleveland, Ohio. Sept 30, 2012.

Wade Park and Lagoon

















In the distance is the Cleveland Museum of Art

















The park is a very popular place for weddings and wedding photos. I think I saw atleast two wedding parties there in less than an hour!







Epworth Euclid Methodist Church, a.k.a. The Holy Oil Can!

Lovely Wade Park shots! Makes me think that Cleveland has its own rendition of Central Park in New York or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, but I'd say that this is a unique public space wherein two different realms of life, the religious (Holy Oil Can!) and the artistic (Cleveland Museum of Art), blend in harmoniously with the peaceful open space, complete with an intricate statue! And I especially love the second to the last shot you've taken with the swimming ducks: what is that building in the background?

As for University Circle, I really sense the traffic flowing through the area... How many hospitals and medical centers are in the area since I noted like two or three? And I can see the HealthLine Bus too... finally something we could talk about because I think that is a Bus Rapid Transit line, true? I also like the convergence of the traditional, modern, and post-modern architecture in one small area alone, and it's great to see those combine near the University. Lovely photo sets again!

I habe no clue what the building is. I think it's part of Case Western Reserve University. Somd administration building I believe. And trust me, it flows, but only if it's not rush hour. Then it becomes a parking lot. There use to be three hospitals, University, Cleveland Clinic, and Mt Sini. Mt. Sini is gone and the land is suppose to be used to expend Case Western. And Yeah, we habe a BRT. It's called the Healthline.

Those apartments look simply wonderful, and I like that apartment with a Greek front entrance! And by the way, your Wade Park and Synagogue pics look magnificent: indeed, those statues look great, even in the winter (I suspect), and the synagogue is pretty large. I wonder how many people visit it for Sabbath services... And its massive dome reminds me of many domed structures I've seen and visited thus far! I'll tell you: Cleveland is slowly becoming one of my favorite cities to visit soon!
