We suppose this data is something to smile upon, a beacon that despite a myriad of problems in downtown Cleveland, young professionals still see something —- even if it's just proximity to Red Bull and vodkas being slung in bars on W. 6th — that merits living downtown. But, 1300 over a decade? Is that impressive? (Seriously, we're asking.)

Via USA Today (and Cool Cleveland):

"This is a real glimmer of hope," says Carol Coletta, head of CEOs for Cities, a non-profit consortium of city leaders that commissioned the research. "Clearly, the next generation of Americans is looking for different kinds of lifestyles — walkable, art, culture, entertainment."

In Cleveland, which lost 17% of its population, downtown added 1,300 college-educated people ages 25 to 34, up 49%.
