If Carnegie Avenue through Midtown shocked you, East Cleveland might shake your faith in humanity. See my April 1 posting, which is no April fool's joke.

Jeezus, glad I didn't end up there by accident!

Wow. Turning that streetview back to 2007 it looks like such a normal, stable, even nice area - https://goo.gl/maps/8WAjtjZtQdo

And then 10 years later it looks like Berlin after the war...

So much damage in so short a time.  And the longer this goes on, the bigger the problem Cleveland eventually has to absorb.

Not that it really makes any difference to today's reality, but on the one side there was a building (Huron Hospital) that was demolished when the hospital closed in 2011. The other side is an apartment building where the owners sold all the aluminum windows for scrap. So this area looks way worse than it would otherwise (Still horrible). There are so many streets that look terrible it is embarrassing. I feel bad for all the property owners who take care of their properties, but being the only ones to do so on an entire street of decay.

And the city officials there preside over it like they're due some respect or tribute, like some sort of landlords. The city is approaching the point where large sections of it simply need to be demolished and start over. Some urban farming is about all that can be justified now. Perhaps in 100 or 200 years from now they will find subterranean remnants of the old city upon which the new city is being built.

One morning I went to East Cleveland to get a building permit.  I got to City Hall around 10:30 and found the building locked.  Several people were standing around out front because they had court dates and didn't know what to do.  I called office numbers until I got someone, told them there was a small crowd waiting all morning to get in.  They basically said "oops" and sent a janitor to unlock the door.
