Artist's Description

THIS IS A VIEW OF CLEVELAND, OHIO’S WAREHOUSE DISTRICT TAKEN FROM THE FLATS.

40 YEARS AGO WHEN I WORKED IN THIS AREA, IT WAS ONE OF THE WORST PARTS OF THE CITY. THE OFFICE BUILDINGS AND WAREHOUSES WERE IN MAJOR DISREPAIR, CRIME WAS VERY HIGH, AND THE WHOLE AREA JUST HAD A DEPRESSING FEEL TO IT.

ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO A MAJOR REDEVELOPEMENT PROJECT SWEPT THE AREA AND THE CHANGE HAS BEEN SPECTACULAR. THE BUILDINGS IN THE LOWER LEFT SECTION OF THIS IMAGE WERE RENOVATED AND ARE NOW SOME OF THE MOST DESIRABLE CONDOS AND APARTMENTS IN THE CITY. THE AREA HAS SOME OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS, STORES, AND ART GALLERIES IN NORTHEAST OHIO, AND IS RIGHT UP THE STREET FROM THE CENTER OF CLEVELAND’S MUSIC SCENE.

CLEVELAND HAS COME A LONG WAY FROM THE TIME WHEN IT WAS “THE MISTAKE ON THE LAKE”, AND I REALLY WISH THAT EVERYONE WHO READS THIS COULD SPEND JUST ONE WEEK THERE AND SEE WHY I TRULY BELIEVE THAT MY TOWN HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST, IF NOT THE MOST, EXCITING, VIBRANT, AND DYNAMIC CITIES IN THE MID-WEST.
