Unfolding the real Cleveland, this guidebook features listings of the city s best cultural hotspots as well as essays about residential communities. Readers will learn about places that are longer in existence, the areas that are becoming increasingly popular, the natural history of Cleveland Heights, what Mount Pleasant was like back in the day, and Opportunity Corridors missed. The stories discuss starting a business in Ohio City, marketing Larchmere, first time home buying in Detroit Shoreway, self-loathing in South Euclid, troubling developments in Tremont, closed schools in Lee-Miles, and a vineyard in Hough. Bound together, they conjure a Cleveland as complex as its residents.
