Going Uptown


Euclid Avenue looking West from East 117 Street.

Here are a few photographs taken today of the Cleveland Institute of Art in the Uptown District of University Circle today.  I went there to see the new documentary Ingrid Bergman-In Her Own Words at the Cleveland Cinematheque.  However, before that, I took a little walk to look at, not only some ugly new architecture, but the only place on Cleveland’s East Side where property values have rebounded significantly.








It goes to show you what can be done if people are willing to spend money on a few blocks along Euclid Avenue; and that includes the expanded Cleveland Institute of Art facility.  I cannot believe that it is almost a year ago since they have moved their operations from the old East Boulevard facility.  Admittedly, the interiors of the new building are amazing (as is the Bauhaus inspired exterior) and it must be wonderful just going across the street to the Crop Kitchen, Dynomite Burgers Sushi, or further afield to the Barnes & Noble @ Case Western Reserve University on the other side of Euclid Avenue.
