Retired USAF, Federal Employee, now retired in CLE and hoping to hook up with band/orchestra to sing Sinatra tunes around town.
I grew up in the outskirts of CLE myself, in the burbs of Middleburg Hts, Fry Road. My Grandparents lived downtown off of Clark Ave, and my other Grandparents off of Woburn by St. Mary's in Brooklyn. So guess we were West Siders. It was magic going to their house at Christmas and for some reason both Grandparents, and probably every Italian household, had an aluminum Christmas Tree with the 4 colored lights rotating on it. That was back in the 60s, but I still remember it vividly. Little did I now that the mountain of gifts were all cigarettes and booze from one gomba to another, ha, ha! I never really visited the east side until after joining the Air Force and leaving Cleveland for a 28 year vacation around the world. Now I come home 2 or 3 times, and plan to retire there. Who wouldn't :). I really enjoy Nighttown, the public library, the Arcade, and other aspects of the East side. But East or West, Cleveland is Best!
