We came from Baltimore, which is a very liveable city. We weren’t ready for the suburbs and never being able to walk anywhere again. I love being able to walk to restaurants and not be dependent on driving. I walk to work as long as the weather permits.
I liked the idea of having something close to work – not having a long drive to work and cultural activities. I’m close to the museums and sports events. I just bought Browns season tickets.
It’s always been one of Cleveland’s treasures. I don’t think you can go anywhere in the country and have so many wonderful institutions in one area.
Constantino’s is great. So much has happened since I moved here. I’m looking forward to the Museum of Contemporary Art and the new restaurants opening. I’ve seen the neighborhood change for the better in less than a year.
I live 2.9 miles from work. I like to say I roll out of bed and into work. I’ve ridden my bike to work and I could walk to work. It’s convenient and it saves on gas, too.
To be three minutes from work is amazing. It’s especially beneficial when I have to work late. I feel safe getting home.
It’s a good opportunity for employees. Without this help, we wouldn’t have considered buying a house.
It’s good that Case is willing to offer this because it helps improve the area around the campus. So Case benefits. It makes for a safer, improved neighborhood.
I feel I’ve not only invested in my home, but also in the community. I try hard to make the exterior look good. I’ve planted flowers and put wreaths up to make it inviting and welcoming. I want my home to be an asset in the neighborhood.
I wasn’t thinking about buying in the city. I was thinking of something in the country. I love fishing. I love hunting. But the additional funding was an incentive. I saw the benefit of being an ‘urban pioneer’ – taking a risk in building something in an urban area. I spent part of my childhood in this neighborhood. I feel I’m giving something back to the area by building something new here.
