Cleveland (Glenville) - East 105th Street
« on: July 11, 2009, 01:49:13 AM »
Cleveland – East 105th Street

Took these pictures this spring but just realized I never got around to posting them.  Enjoy…

OK, so this is technically E.107th, but that’s where I chose to start because of the great pair of buildings.

Judson Manor Retirement Community


Epworth Euclid Church






Moving around the corner to Park Lane:


The Temple on East 105th:


I skipped quite a bit north past the vacant field where Mt. Sinai used to stand and the hideous Cancer Survivors Plaza.  Beyond the traffic circle “vortex of doom” was the back end of the VA and a construction site.






Just north of Wade Park Ave.., there are about fifteen of these beautifully renovated homes:


Some of the windows don't look so translucent...




Unfortunately, the next block north has almost entirely been bulldozed.

Abandoned library branch:


Doan Classroom Apartments looking a little raggedy:


E. 105 and Superior:






I might be inclined to like this church a little more if there wasn’t an entire block of gated parking directly next to (and I assume owned by) it.


105th has some grand churches… this isn’t one of them.


But this is:


Corey United Methodist


Formerly…


The place is huuuge:




But across the street is not so grand:




EIFS!












Palm Sunday in the streets:








East 105th by Jesse Jackson Pl.


WTF?




Finally, the stepchild of the famous West Side Market:

Forgotten places that still have some hidden gems. Do you know how difficult it is to get the average acquaintance of mine to see potentials and worth in many places like this? I love the Heritage Row houses.

Its a catch 22, many people in the "historic" part of Glenville, don't want people to come in.  They are okay with gentrification and redevelopment south of St. Clair, but not in St. Clair North.  They have some of the largest and most beautiful homes in Cleveland proper.

Do you mean the largest/beautiful homes in the historic area of Glenville, or the place they don't want gentrification?

There is an invisible barrier between the park, Superior, East 102 or 105 (depending on the street you are on), and East Blvd.

The area north of SUPERIOR (I said st. clair -sorry) has a lot of older and/or long time residents, that don't want change.  They want to keep the area quiet, safe and family oriented.  They want to keep those who don't care out.  They want the city to give money to keep the old school feel and look.  They don't outsiders.

Those that live in that south of Superior, where Hough, Glenville & University Circle merge want gentrification and families to come in.  That area seems to have a lot of younger families.

Interesting. I have always loved East Blvd along R. Park. That rally looks to be a nice area. I used to walk through the park and liked some of the brick road side streets as well.

Awesome tour!

Some impressive buildings, but our cities need to set up and enforce standards for retail frontage. The commercial section is hideous.

This is now getting rehabbed!  I consider this part of the "Greater University Circle" area as well.

Nice shots!  E105th seems to have transitioned from undersued retail too...church parking.  Amazes me how much demo there's been in the last 10 years or so for church parking.

thanks for saying that because i was thinking there was a heck of a lot more old and nearly abandoned but still very urban styled retail stretches along there. some seems to have been chopped down for parking.

Very cool.  Ignoring the ugly church, can this type of housing stock be found around the city?  I feel like I'd expect more of your typical great lakes frame houses in Cleveland.  For example, in Detroit finding this type of housing (even historically) would be rare.

^ Frame houses are certainly the norm in Cleveland, but small rows of townhouses like that are found scattered throughout the city.  Locally, they're often called "terrace houses."  Here's a few examples from the top of my head:

West Boulevard
W. 65th
Detroit Avenue
Chester Avenue
Kenilworth Avenue (not a great view)
Franklin Boulevard

speaking of, can anyone say what the differences are between terrace and row houses? i always thought terrace houses share a wall and row houses do not. wiki seems to say row, terrace and townhouses are all pretty much interchangeable:
