Ohio City

Necessity compelled early Clevelanders to live close to their food source; desire is what's driving today's urban pioneers.

Just shy of a century old, the West Side Market still has the power to nourish an entire corner of the city. As Cleveland continues its path toward culinary nirvana, Ohio City is providing much of the steam. Dubbed the Market District, the area surrounding the West Side Market continues to add new bars, restaurants, cafes and even a brewery to those that already exist.

One of Cleveland's oldest neighborhoods, this densely populated settlement features brick-paved lanes, restored 19th-century homes, and nearly all of Cleveland's B&Bs. Inhabited both by urban hipsters and grizzled old-timers, it is not uncommon to hear the cockle-doodle-do of a neighbor's yard bird.

The folks at Cottage Living magazine loved their visit to Ohio City so much, they selected it as one of their "Top 10 Cottage Communities."

what cities like cleveland can learn from memphis

The City of Memphis is on the rise thanks to a growing startup community, investments in bike lanes, a burgeoning arts district and people moving back to the city. Through it all, the city has listened to its residents and embraced "lean urbanism." Cleveland should take heed.
