Tremont

For 20 years, this hamlet's art galleries, studios and boutiques have been rolling out the red carpet for art lovers during its monthly Tremont ArtWalks. That the affair has survived so long is testament to the quantity and quality of creative folks who live and work in the area. Tremont is well regarded as the heart of Cleveland's thriving culinary scene -- it is, after all, where Michael Symon opened Lola. Fast on his heels came restaurants manned by notable chefs with names like Bruell, Whalen and Boccuzzi. Diverse yet cooperative, Tremont attracts residents by the handful thanks to walkable streets, community gardens, dog parks, and convivial coffee shops.

parks 2.0: focus now shifting from developments to green space in between

As urban neighborhoods become more vibrant, planners are turning their attention to creating world-class public spaces to complement the latest flurry of development. Three new or improved parks have just been unveiled this year: Scranton Flats, the marina at North Coast Harbor and Rivergate.

The Hinterlands at Play House

putting art at the heart of neighborhood redevelopment

Artists are often the first to move into urban neighborhoods, and also the first to move out when rents escalate. Yet in the post-recession landscape, many communities are working with artists to transform blight, engage residents and reimagine their neighborhoods.
