CITY LIFE: MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS
“I’ve always been active in my community, particularly while attending college. I’ve been active in Adopt-A-School tutoring children and more recently a Big Brother as part of of the national Big Brothers Big Sisters Program. After I graduated from Ohio State University, I moved to Tremont, just outside of Downtown. I’ve lived there for three years and love how dog friendly and walkable everything is. It has the best of both worlds in my opinion – offering an urban feel with a strong community base. When I’m looking to go out at night, I’m just a short Uber ride away to all the action but have no problem exploring all the great local restaurants, bars, and cafes that the Tremont/Ohio City area as to offer. I love living in Cleveland due to the low cost of living and the familiarity of everything and think it’s an up and coming city. I can definitely see myself settling down and raising a family here in Cleveland.”
“I chose to live in Stockyards while in graduate school because of the convenience and affordability. But I’ve come to love where I live. It’s filled with working class families, many of which are immigrants like my parents, and it has an incredibly diverse housing stock. I genuinely believe it’s an overlooked gem in the city. Living in the Stockyard neighborhood, you’re only a few minutes away from Downtown, the Metroparks, and the Zoo. You’re also just a stone’s throw away from other bustling neighborhoods on the near-west side. It has been amazing to see the neighborhood grow and improve over the years and I look forward to being a part of the neighborhood for years to come.”
