There are thousands of ways to map a city. Roads and bridges help you navigate the twists and turns, topography gives you the lay of the land, and population growth shows you its changing fortunes. But the best maps let you feel what that city is really like.
Cleveland in 50 Maps deconstructs the Forest City in surprising new ways. Follow the changing locations of breweries, music venues, and commuter rail lines over time. Track the Clinic’s growing east side footprint, year-by-year attendance at the Jake, and the addition of communities to the Cultural Gardens. Find out which local high schools produce the most NFL players and which locations the major presidential candidates visited in 2016. Discover the massive salt mine under Lake Erie and the barricades on the border of Shaker Heights. In each colorful map, you'll find a new perspective on one of America’s most misunderstood cities and the people who live here.
