Slavic Village

The Slavic Village area of Cleveland was hardly similar to its Eastern European namesake in terms of demographics and overall prosperity following the national housing depression in 2008. However, six years later, the locale is slowly improving itself with the help of the remaining residents as well as with the organization Slavic Village Development. The main section of Slavic Village is Historic Warszawa, which has Fleet Avenue running right through it. Some may think of it as a “Little Poland” for Clevelanders. Slavic Village Development is currently working on a variety of restorative projects for the populace, which include the bettering of Fleet Avenue and the Historic Broadway District.
