This video is funny but also kinda offends me. It doesn't show the lakefront which is just down E. 9th St. (Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, a giant ship lol, Great Lakes Center, IMax Theatre, Browns Stadium. The Terminal Tower has a big mall inside of it.. when "Tower City" was built a lot of the shops in the street couldn't compete.. Higbees and the giant Woolworth closed, etc.. I admit it was a lot more vibrant when I first moved here in the '80s.

We still have a lot of night clubs in the area, including Fat Fish Blue and the House of Blues (Yes is coming!!) and yep, lots of homeless people. There are soooo many empty buildings just outside the downtown area though. The Flats use to be an exciting place but it's dead now.

I was in Baltimore a few months back and their downtown area is pretty amazing in comparison. A lot of our cool stuff is far off on the east side.. the Art Museum, Natural History Museum, Cleveland Cinematheque (where I see foreign and arty films) Severance Center (home of the Cleveland Orchestra, one of the top five most prestigious orchestras in the U.S.)

I've been spending this week with other jobless people at a career workshop all this week. Man, there are some sad stories. I'm meeting people who have lost their houses, about to lose their unemployment benefits (I'm one of them!) We have about ten people in our group who worked for National City Bank. They lost their jobs when PNC bought them. This city is in bad shape. I'm now considering becoming a STNA.
