Cleveland Is Dying, and It Is Beautiful

leave a comment »

I was all excited to link to Cleveland Is Dying, and It Is Beautiful when I saw the link on MetaFilter, but unfortunately the pictures of my old stomping grounds (go Spartans!) actually aren’t all that evocative. As echo target quips in the thread, “Cleveland here doesn’t seem to be dying so much as it’s stepped out for a smoke and will be back in a minute.” Still, Cleveland’s problems are real, and they have a long history; the stark contrast between the wealth of University Circle and the poverty of areas immediately surrounding it never ceased to shock me the four years I lived there.
