The main photo of the article is the most damning indictment of American development architecture I've seen in quite some time. Enjoy the suburbs, humans.
So sad to see my friend from my early twenties father on this list. Her poor family already had to mourn her murder this year and now this drama. Praying for the family
Those Pop Warner League plays are now on film....and Purdue is not the next opponent.
Thanks for the article Josh..
.Gary and I have done art in Cleveland for over 45 years. Its always the artists that save the cities and neighborhoods, thats a fact everywhere. All the now "cool art places" started out as ghetto's or run down neighborhoods till the artists showed the possibilities of a good place to live. And they do it because creating awareness and beauty is what we do. Artists should get a little more respect and support.
But as we all know the all mighty dollar is what makes the rules... so artists will continue to be used up and spit out. But we keep on going because we have to...making art is in our blood.
Nate vapenik probably informed the feds.
Yelsky and Lonardo Is the firm. I have Mitch as my lawyer better get those guys. Their the best in the business. Not cheep but you'll get your shot in the deal.
A parody song could be created out of those silly aliases.
Soldiers may not bring their own kids to Afghanistan, but Afghani kids live there, die there, get blown up there.
wasn't she on the cover of Scene once or twice?
cut school funded field trips? my kid is in 8th grade, has been in parma schools since kindergarten, and has only had 1 school funded field trip during those years...
Better hire Angelo Lonardo is you need some legal advice !
" All too often those vibrant communities have more to do with $5 coffees and $7 craft beers than anything else."
And now it's become $7 coffees and $10 beers...especially during the street fairs and other neighborhood "events." And then the food trucks arrive. Can't forget those mobile bandits, with their slow service, $8 sliders and $14 plates, all hoping to part affluent Millennials from their moolah. Highway robbery. And another R-word comes to mind...ridiculous.
Take any gentrifying community you care to name. Rents are low at first. Space is plentiful.Stores are vacant and decaying. Soon the urban pioneers discover the delightful secret. Next, the artists start moving in. Soon there are cool spaces and galleries, and weekend "happenings" that draw the crowds from all over.
Crowds mean money, and can the trendy and expensive restaurants , the valet parking, and the foodies be lurking far behind? The hipster Millennials follow, the new apartments spring up, and Brooklynization of still another part of Cleveland is accomplished.
Yet another funky urban neighborhood loses the character that drew attention to it in the first place, and it is transformed into Crocker Park East or Legacy Village West.
Oh, for joy...

"Selfie" comes from the word "self"...as does "selfish"...and they are not dissimilar...

The shadow of J. Kevin Kelley is pushing over the city more storm clouds filled with red ink.
This is a a great sentiment... until you see the Band of the Week below it is a band from LA via Brooklyn where it should be a place for Cleveland talent.
It would be nice to see EC nice again like it was before 1968.
Maybe the people that fled in the 60s could start moving back if there were incentives and no threat of theft or violence.
As far as the "how do protestors have time to protest if employed" issue, well, many of these groups who protest major events actually hire and often pay people $12-15 per hour to participate. So even though activists seemingly hold up their signs proudly, many of them may in fact not even care about what the rally is for.
And I'm not against black lives matter at all, however, the group seems to unite and hit the streets before all the facts are even looked at by them. To me, that's pretty dangerous as a society, and shows that they may not have matured enough yet.
LBJ yearned to be greater than FDR.....but set in motion the dismantling of the New Deal due to the morass from his unwinnable war.
