Detroit Shoreway

Detroit Shoreway - photo Bob Perkoski

Like many historic neighborhoods, this once-thriving community hemorrhaged residents over the past few decades. But thanks in no small part to Gordon Square Arts District and Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, the neighborhood is one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Cleveland. Long-standing anchors like Cleveland Public Theatre and the recently restored Capitol Theatre are now joined by a bevy of new shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment outlets -- all of which are linked by bike lanes. The Cleveland EcoVillage is a national demonstration project for ecologically responsible urban living, with eco-friendly construction and transit-oriented living.
