Re: “21 Fun Cleveland Facts to Wow Your Friends and Neighbors

"Mistake on the Lake" refers to the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium built in 1930's. Most people erroneously reference this to the city itself.

Re: “Yes, I Moved to Cleveland and You Should Too

Nice piece...and apparently SCENE agreed...so nice they ran it twice...in the Comedy Issue in December and again in March for the City Guide.

Got a lot of positive feedback the first time...the second time--not so much.

A much bigger mistake was trying to stretch "I Moved To Cleveland" into a series, full of snarky Millennial one-liners about our biggest draws and tourist attractions... sorta like taking an amusing "feel-good-hit-of the-summer" comedic film and attempting to turn it into a "hip, cutting-edge, laff riot" sitcom series.

The formula worked once, and only once.

It didn't fly the second time around .

It's crashing and burning now.

Re: “Yes, I Moved to Cleveland and You Should Too

Cleveland born and bred but now living in central PA. I like it here but in the spring and hall it smells so bad outside from the farms you don't even want to open your mouth outside. Cleveland will always be my home and I will end up moving back. My biggest complaint about Cleveland POTHOLES!!!
wish they would do something about that, came home one February for a visit and by the time I got go back to PA I needed an alignment. I am glad you like your new home.

Re: “Public Square's Makeover is Almost Done

This redesign throws off the sight lines that would have made the vista dramatic looking down Ontario to the lake and Courthouse as terminus. I want to be enthusiastic - maybe it will create a new axis East and West, but I can't see how the energy of this plaza will direct people.

For over 35 years...Terminal Tower, at 708 feet and 52 stories, was America's tallest building outside of New York. Chicago took away that distinction in the mid-Sixties.

Re: “Public Square's Makeover is Almost Done

Cleveland is right smack dab in between NYC and Chicago, 2 big time tourist destinations. It's nice to see Cleveland FINALLY start doing some major changes/upgrades downtown... But I've said it before, and I'll say it again. If we are supposed to be the "Rock and Roll City", then we need to come up with an annual music event every year that will bring in tourism, and solidify us as the "Rock and Roll City".

It is my understanding that Elliot Ness' remains (Ashes) were spread upon the Wade Park Lagoon, by members of the Cleveland Police Department about 8 years ago. after an investigation in Coudersport, Pa. where Ness lived for some years before his death there.

Also the 1st electric traffic light was installed in Cleveland in 1914.

Re: “21 Fun Cleveland Facts to Wow Your Friends and Neighbors

15) The Hough Riots, which began on the evening of July 18, 1966, were supposedly sparked after the owner of the Seventy Niners' Cafe refused to serve a black man a glass of water....and then (also supposedly) posted a sign reading NO N*GG**S (they supposedly spelled it out, though)...

Cleveland has always been such a no-nonsense town, where they call a sp...never mind...

Re: “Why I Moved to Northeast Ohio and Why You Should Too

In a word...YES...

But only for the Edgy Alternative New Cleveland.
Old School Retro Cleveland...not so much.

SCENE ignores its destruction, even as it hypes its replacement by the New and the Shiny.

Re: “21 Fun Cleveland Facts to Wow Your Friends and Neighbors

Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run at League Park in 1929; Dimaggio's hitting streak came to an end in Cleveland and the first (and only) unassisted triple play in World Series history was at League Park in 1920, by Bill Wambssgans, who is buried at Calvary Cemetery on Miles Rd.
