Nobody will probably see this because this article is going on a year old. But I just have to gripe about people ragging on huge cities for their traffic problems. Chicago isn't Los Angeles, you don't need a car there, in fact you're the only one to blame for your problems if you do decide to drive. People often forget that cars are the enemy of urbanism. Most problems that cities experience boils down to America's car culture. The ease of driving a car in Cleveland that is so often cited as awesome by the sprawl crowd is a very real very devastating problem to this city. We have to fight just to get buses to be able to drive on roads where they were slated to go in the first place because the population is spread across the suburbs who are in turn able to strong arm the city. If you want to compare which city is easier and cheaper to live in a drab suburb with no culture then by all means write that article. But don't masquerade your quest to live a quiet life in Anytown, USA as a comparison of two historically significant, culture driven, lively urban cores.
Let's all get out of our cars once in a while and use what we have while demanding that things get better. The two should really coincide.
Ohio City residents stopped the location from becoming a McDonalds a few years ago, please stop painting MetroHealth as the hero in a battle that was won long before this deal was struck.
My question is why does this store think it is so upscale that it can't open anywhere but "upscale" suburbs? I've only ventured inside the Sandusky location but honestly it looks like a slightly nicer Walmart, maybe on par with Target. I'm not saying I need this store to open near me, I'm saying I'm disappointed that the company seems like they are refusing to do anything that isn't sprawl development.
The State of Ohio seems hellbent on stealing the title of 'Most Backwards-Ass Northern State' away from Indiana.
Animal abuse sympathizer calls an animal rights activist "willfully ignorant", then goes home and eats murdered animals. The irony is too much!
I am really disappointed they are closing Winks. It was my go to place before Tribe and Cavs games when everything around Gateway was packed.
On a side note, blaming Ohio City for your business troubles in the Heights? Really? Different worlds.
