Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

* big knowing sigh....

I'd say, several hundred brave people made this all possible over 20-30 years perseverance. Amazing.

Now the cash is pouring in.

Smart people are now looking East.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

And so the saga continues, and the Brooklynization of the Near West Side marches on like an army of steamrollers. Ohio City today, Gordon Square tomorrow...and who knows what else...and where else...in a month or a year.

Hingetown, we hardly knew ye. Stupid name anyway, Still Ohio City to most folks.

Make way for the rowdy late-night drinkers, and the hordes of well-heeled Millennial yupsters who will visit, and the young high-rolers who will reside there, stacked up on top of each other like cans of beans in a grocery display. Good-bye to the older, long-time has-beans.

If the affluent and beer-fueled corner of 29th and Detroit MUST have a label...I humbly suggest...Bingetown.

Can't help but notice that the two people who don't live here and aren't part of the longtime near west side community are also unwilling to post under their own names while disparaging the neighbhorhood. Brave stuff right there.

Re: “Nawlins City Express Rolls in Cleveland This Summer

I was lucky enough to sample the chicken & sausage gumbo at the Fabulous Food show, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since! Absolutely delicious!

Re: “Case Western Students, Faculty Talk Public Safety Concerns in Wake of Steve Stephens Manhunt

The students have every right to be angry. Their anger should be directed at the city of Cleveland leadership. The event of that day was sad. The pathetic aspect of that day is the city waited 4 hours to notify any and everybody of an active shooter within the city.

Several within the media are not asking the hard and right questions of the mayor and the police chief. Why the delay?

Oh please. This guy lives a block south of DETROIT AVENUE, one of the main thoroughfares of the entire western half of Cuyahoga County. It's not like they're proposing an 11-story building on Whitman. Detroit's a main street- it should look like and have the vibe of one!

Re: “Photographer Lee Sechrist is Shooting Cleveland's Hangovers, One Pain-Riddled Face at a Time

In my experience - which obviously limited to the life that I've lived, your experience may vary - folks that say "I got out of there" weren't "getting out" of anywhere, but rather looking for something outside of themselves, their identity and that of their place hopelessly entangled.

Getting out becomes getting away - from themselves and the place where they are that person, ascribing too little to themselves, and assigning the remainder to "place."

It's easier to find a new you in a new context. Doesn't make the old place bad or shameful, as much as you might protest. But place and identity aren't a husk that you molt and leave behind; it's essential foundation. Embrace it and embrace yourself.

Long story short, people are going to get drunk. People are going to be hungover. In Cleveland, New York, L.A., and every place in between. Documented life experience isn't a "negative" unless you choose to view it that way. Drop your shame, and you might find that you like yourself a little better.

At minimum, the rest of us will.

Oh yes, let's make sure Ohio City doesn't lose the character of its glory days from 1950 - 2010 :eyeroll:

Re: “Cavs Survive More Last Stanza Thrill-Seeking to Dispatch Pacers

Excellent post and analysis of the Cavs game, I can only imagine how much time it takes to write but it sure is awesome to read. But posted at 5:27am? I'm curious if you woke up super early, or stayed up super late.

Re: “Facebook Murderer Steve Stephens Killed Himself in Erie, Pa., According to Police

A pathetic excuse for a man taking the pathetic way out. He can talk big and post on FB live when he's gunning down an unarmed man incapable of fighting back or fleeing, but as soon as the sirens come he is quickly outmatched and can't face the music. I'd like to say I feel pity for him, but I don't. It's really sad that someone would choose to hurt another human being in such a way and cause so much pain and sorrow for so many people.

Re: “Can Cleveland Please Get a Few More Elected Leaders Like Cincinnati's?

Rather than pay another penny for the Q, we should GIVE it to Dan Gilbert for free. We will pay off the existing bonds with the revenue already allocated and then starting in 2024 we can put the admissions tax in the general fund. He can upgrade or not upgrade as much as he would like. Although he would NEVER take the arena for free. Because he would then have to pay taxes on it. God forbid they contribute to the community.

Re: “Reward Now Offered for Info about Double Murder at Mr. Cars on E. 185th

The fact remains that two innocent, hardworking people were murdered so a lazy piece of garbage could steal from them instead of working hard to get money and buy what they wanted the proper way. Justice needs to be served in this case, otherwise let's make our country's new motto: Work Hard, Pay Taxes, Get Murdered, Then Who Cares?! I'm willing to bet that the killers don't pay taxes in full or at all.
