It’s a great place to live. There are a lot of professionals in my neighborhood. It’s a central location. I can get to a grocery store easily. I’m close to downtown – and the east or west side. It’s an ideal location.
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 a beautiful area. There are wonderful institutions and Little Italy is great. It has a small town feel, separate from downtown, with great amenities.
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.
It’s wonderful to live close to where you work. And it’s a self-supporting thing. The more people who live in an area, the more businesses that follow, and it becomes a thriving center.
To be three minutes from work is amazing. It’s especially beneficial when I have to work late. I feel safe getting home.
We first used the program to rent a condo in Little Italy. When we were ready to buy, we looked all over. But this made us strongly consider staying in the neighborhood. There were a lot of factors – convenience to work and we loved the Little Italy neighborhood. So this program was really icing on the cake. We ended up buying the condo next door to the unit we were renting.
It’s a good opportunity for employees. Without this help, we wouldn’t have considered buying a house.
Neighbors have noticed a difference in my home since the improvements. It makes my home stand out, even though it sits way back from the road. That’s been nice.
I think Cleveland could benefit by having more professionals living in the area and this encourages that and makes it possible.
