lack of warmth: Not sure how tax abatements will matter, if there is no job to pay for the other expenses. Sure tax breaks are nice, however not having the jobs to support their families, many won't be able to return to Detroit. Now if many moving to Cleveland are the same people building the new residential properties, then that seems like a little short term planning. After awhile those jobs will cease. Now if Cleveland has some new industry planting itself there, then good for them.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: [cache.gawkerassets.com image 340x245]Mike Polk is the best thing about Cleveland, by far.

CavalierEternal: The unemployment rate in Cleveland has dropped nearly 4% over the past two years, now at 8.5%. There are big restoration projects going on throughout the city, including an almost total reconstruction of the Flats and what Dan Gilbert describes as as a "little Time Square" that will be finished in the area around Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena by 2017. We have a great theater district, a thriving music scene, great restaurants, some of the best hospitals on the planet and a constant stream of revenue from studios shooting movies here all the time. Yeah, it's cold and rusty and you're putting your life at risk by stopping at red lights in East Cleveland, but Cleveland as a whole doesn't suck nearly as bad as the rest of the country (the high majority of them having never been here and only going off of what they saw in the Cleveland Tourism Video) would make you believe.
T.rex: One day, i'm going to go back and make a proper Cleveland tourism video that will convince people to spend their vacation their as the new hotspot destination.
Bung_Howdy: CLEVELAND: WE ARE ALL BETTER NOW! JUST LOOK![4.bp.blogspot.com image 480x394]
The Ice Cream Man: Tell someone that you are from Detroit, and they will back off two steps.
T.rex: Adolf Oliver Nipples: [cache.gawkerassets.com image 340x245]Mike Polk is the best thing about Cleveland, by far.I actually think he's the devil in disguise for Cleveland. What he made as an inside joke for Clevelandars to have a self-effacing chuckle at, has been disseminated around the country where people who don't know any better, take it seriously....You can show a bunch of lame crap about ANY city, but if your audience is uneducated about the good things that aren't displayed, their opinion will be only about the bad stuff. There has been a huge resurgence of negative Cleveland perceptions coinciding with that video. He should be ashamed.One day, i'm going to go back and make a proper Cleveland tourism video that will convince people to spend their vacation their as the new hotspot destination.
