Filming Cleveland as European is another reason to preserve the old buildings rather than tear them down for new construction. End all tax abatement on new construction.
:) my great-aunt once scolded our entire generation for being way too serious--"At your age, I was out dancing every night" in pre-War Cleveland. Super Pimp is conserving the legacy :)
The beautiful, luscious land of Ohio is very fertile; a milk cow does not need 5 acres on such rich, pleasantly watered land....
Think twice about demolishing any "old structures." Such solid construction cannot be replaced. Modern construction reeks of planned obsolescence--(someone makes money by building cheap fast, then again by replacing it after its short life-cycle....)
Cleveland's visual charm is in its architecture from a more elegant era. Destroying this heritage in the name of "urban agriculture" could turn into another real estate speculator/developer's ploy. Farms near people is an obviously good and normal idea--the norm in Germany---but please be careful on the implementation here in the land of block-busters and red-liners....
The grey skies give abundant water for farming. Lack of sunlight also gives low-level clinical depression. Light therapy is a clinically documented solution.
Mandating imitation sunlight in public places could help with "depression and attitude." Free light therapy could also help attract urban farmers from sunnier places (lacking water) looking for someplace livable to farm.
In the name of public health and economic welfare: light therapy for all!
Very, very proud not to have a corporate named Stadium, just plain Cleveland. Thank you for swimming against the gray tide, Mr. Lerner!
"Pre-industrial" does not necessarily mean "hunter-gatherer."
It could mean medieval or renaissance.
Since the bishop actually sold the land, let's go with Renaissance :)
