NYT Spotlights University Circle—But Gives It a New Name

Art Museum Lagoon at University Circle — or Uptown?
  • Art Museum Lagoon at University Circle — or "Uptown"?

Last week the New York Times shone the spotlight on the development boom going on in Cleveland’s University Circle area.

Keith Schneider’s article is titled “Cleveland Turns Uptown into a New Downtown.” It focuses primarily on the new-mixed use development called Uptown that’s going up at the junction of Euclid, Mayfield, and Ford. It will include residential and retail, as well as the new $27 million MOCA building.

But the way Schneider’s article is written, it implies that all of University Circle — which isn’t mentioned until the ninth paragraph — is synonymous with Uptown. It isn't.
