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.
University Circle has so much to offer. When I walk to work, I look around at the beautiful historic buildings and it reminds me of Europe. When I need a loaf of bread, I can get fresh baked bread right in the neighborhood, rather than getting in my car for a loaf from the grocery store.
I love the proximity to work. I’m three minutes from Cleveland Clinic. I’m on call a lot so I need to be at work quickly. I didn’t want a long drive.
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.
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.
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.
The growth and renewal that are happening with many of the institutions and their building campaigns is extending into the neighborhoods. It’s fantastic. I hope we have more people spending time in the neighborhood and living in the area so the neighborhood will be sustained. That will improve the neighborhoods. It increases the value of your home and the neighborhood, too.
