Here's the situation.

I am 33 years old. I am a lawyer by prefession, so I can move wherever the hell i want to and make over 100k. Im a big fan of Lebron James. Im considering moving to Cleveland and get season tickets to the Cavs this year.

Hows the city? where are good neighboorhoods?


thanks.

Pretty sure OP is trolling but Tremont is the best spot by far.

Idk how people live in those poverty small areas outside of cleveland. High prices and small old old houses. I'll take my strongsville/hinckley/north royalton areas where I can get a 5 year old 3,000 square foot home on a few acres for 300k.

Brb oooo Lakewood is so cool with it's hip apartments and 1900s homes. No Ty

60k some 20-35 year olds with higher degrees have moved here in the past few years.. more than Chicago, San Fran, Austin, etc.

Lot's of chit to do, despite what you hear on ESPN or here. Tremont is a bit hipster for my liking.

If you're making over 60-70k, you basically live like a king. Most people I know, like myself, aren't from Cleveland originally..moved here for work:

Ohio City is pretty cool too:

Oh and some of the best restaurants in the world. If you like food, it rivals and city in the US sans Chicago, LA, or NYC.

This is being built now, some already completed. Will have 12+ bars/restaurants/clubs, hotel, Ernst & Young offices

Ohio city is nice. They put a lot of money into that area so it's a hipster place and not one where you get stabbed like it was 15 years ago. Most of cleveland is safe these days if you stay on the west side. I use to ride the rapid to work and never felt like I was gonna get killed even when I worked late an rode it at 11pm or so.

Have a friend that lives in Tremont and yes it's expensive but he has a two level condo that is completely remodeled on the inside, it's very nice. Close to downtown so we get loaded and ride a bike to Indians games all the time. Sure strongsville and the other suburbs will be cheaper (I live in Berea) but it's nice being close to everything downtown.

The real nice cities around Cleveland:

- Pepper Pike
- Westlake
- Rocky River
- Lakewood (if you're younger and not rich)
- Bay Village
- Olmsted Falls
- Hudson
- Solon
- Strongsville
- Gates Mills
- Hunting Valley
- Avon or Avon Lake

all of those sans Lakewood are $100k+ median income, definitely a ton more. People don't understand there's a chit ton of wealth in the Northeast Ohio.

Dude, Ohio in general is garbage. If you're doing it just for Lebron tickets that seems a little far fetched, fun, but let's not throw all our cookies in one basket.

If you want to live in the suburbs check out Beachwood, Orange, Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Gates Mills, Hunting Valley. Shaker Heights has a lot of nice house too but Van Aken goes right into the hood. There's some nice condos/apartments in Little Italy but again you'll border the hood. A lot of cities are like that I guess; Downtown Cleveland is no different.


Edit: Cleveland is really not that great. People here have a ton of pride and will overrate it, but it's also not as bad as outsiders will make it sound. We have a lot of good food, art, some really wealthy neighborhoods if you're looking for that, the best sports fans, and a casino. There's a lot of rebuilding being done here to make the city relevant again, but we haven't quite gotten there and there's still a lot of crime. If you really want to move here though I think things will only get better with time.

Bruh that's because those cities are boring as fuk. Live somewhere with character on the lake like Rocky River, Lakewood, Bay Village or downtown/tremont/ohio city.

No one wants to live in Pepper Pike or Hunting Valley if they A. don't have a family and kids B. Ever grew up on the water.

Hence why I said they're suburbs, of course they're boring. OP did not specify where he wanted to live. If you make 100k+ and want to raise a family and go to Cavs games it makes perfect sense to move to Beachwood or Moreland Hills. OP is 33

If he wants to live in the city, that's already been covered.

Had out a house in the burbs with 2 acres of land. House was only worth maybe 150k due to a lot of water damage/neglect. You could definitely buy something like that, renovate, and flip it for a nice profit. Tons of building being done out here.

Hudson bro checking in.

I travel about half the time for work, so i have seen much of the US and have a decent basis for comparison . Overall, ohio is nice. Many clean and upscale suburbs. Downtown was fairly grim 15 years ago, but has improved dramatically since then. As others have said we have some of the best restaurants outside of NYC. Nightlife is still a bit behind other cities of similar size, but again, more has improved in the last 10 years than the previous 30.

There are certainly some run down parts of town that are unsafe, but they are not in downtown and easily avoidable.

I wouldn't say that cleveland is drawing people in like crazy (it's no Nyc, La, or seattle), but it certainly is as good or better than many other decent cities. The condescension of the sports talking heads and sports misc is largely unfounded.

" The skill level of Cleveland's young adult workforce is world class. It ranks 7th nationally, ahead of San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle and Austin, for professional and graduate degrees."

I will say there is a HUGE disconnect from the people who moved here and live in the urban areas from people who grew up here their entire life. The newcomers are far more positive than the lifetime residents (see above). I'd say the Clevelander's who grew up on the water sailing, boating, beach, etc are even different mentality wise than the rest. Weird city, but I like it.
