Thanks everyone for your help and comments. I updated the map. An updated version is added in the first page of the post or if you don't want to scroll back, click http://skorasaurus.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/version4-1-final_2011_05_05-cnm-1290x996.png. In this version, I added Hough and renamed the Collinwood neighborhoods (as North Collinwood and Collinwood as 327 had mentioned) and updated the street data (imported from 2007 TIGER and verified and updated by myself and a few others) from Openstreetmap EDIT: Just realized that I forgot to include Ohio City in this version
Just wondering if it will get jumbled if you try to show every downtown district
Interesting. City of Cleveland redrawing it's statistical planning areas: http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2011/07/cleveland_neighborhood_names_c.html
Utterly ridiculous. Why in the world would they get rid of the Edgewater name? They just put up new signs too. It's not like residents are going to start saying, I live in Clifton-Cuddel. No one ever uses the Cuddle name. South Brooklyn? Aerotropolis? No Kamms Corners? WTF?
This is happening all over, not just Cleveland. Developers and in some cases neighborhood associations believe in "fresh starts" and name change makes "gentrification" and new development easier.Right in Harlem, developers are trying to change the name of a portion below 125 to SoHa from the more common "Central Harlem"/"Harlem" or the historical "the flats" name.

It should ne the reverse, give the neighborhood that's a bit fallen down the same name as a prominent neighborhood. While we are at it, might as well start referring to Edgewater Park as Clifton-Cuddel Park.
Where is Shaker-Buckeye? It can't be that little dot above Mount Pleasant.

A larger copy of the map can be seen at http://skorasaurus.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/version4-2-final_2011_07_22-cnm.pngMTS, I'd love to hear your 2 cents on Buckeye/Shaker. =) Is Buckeye-Shaker one neighborhood ? Sounding ignorant, but is it often called that by residents and stakeholders ? I drive through the area weekly; Shaker Square and Buckeye are appear to be branded as two different entities. For example, I haven't seen any businesses or churches in the general area named Shaker/Buckeye; but I think there may be a couple named Buckeye (and Buckeye Plaza). I'll be the first to admit that I am not very familiar with the area but Is Larchmere just a part of the Buckeye-Shaker Neigbhorhood ? If so, perhaps it and Shaker Square are subneighborhoods within the Buckeye-Shaker neighborhood.
After a lot of behind the scenes work on it [nearly every day for the past month or 2], I made an update to it last week, adding brooklyn centre and Lake Erie. Thanks for the feedback and insight, MTS. To help me understand, would you classify this area - http://i.imgur.com/Doz5a.png - as 'the square' or 'Shaker Square' ? Would you extend further south to buckeye ? Any other thoughts ? thanks,will.
