Cleveland Neighborhood Guidebook

Edited by the Staff of Belt Magazine

Part of Belt’s Neighborhood Guidebook Series, The Cleveland Neighborhood is a portrait of the real Cleveland, a city of contradictions and seemingly infinite stories.

This guidebook, edited by the staff of Belt Magazine, features 26 essays that take a close look at the Forest City’s hidden gems. Here, readers will visit Little Italy, Parma, Slavic Village, and Cleveland Heights. They’ll learn about what Mount Pleasant was like back in the day and what Opportunity Corridors missed. The stories discuss starting a business in Ohio City, marketing Larchmere, first-time home buying in Detroit Shoreway, bike commuting from Shaker Heights to Asia Town, troubling developments in Tremont, closed schools in Lee-Miles, and a vineyard in Hough. Readers will also get tips on hidden gem restaurants, bars, museums, and shops. Collected together, this “least practical, most literary guide” to Cleveland offers a picture of the city that is as complex as its residents. 

In this collection, Clevelanders will recognize both their streets and their stories, and readers from outside the city will get an inside look at one of America’s most misunderstood locales.
