Historic Bank Building in Old Brooklyn being stripped for Marble

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 07/14/2014 - 10:32.


I walked by the historic bank building at corner of Pearl and Broadview today - looking in the window - it appears that the building is being systematically stripped of the marble wall trim.  The interior is very reminescent of the United Bank Building - which was renovated to house Crop restaurant.   The building is listed with CBRE commercial real estate.  http://www.cbre.com/EN/findproperty/Pages/default.aspx

End of the Suburbs (? )

 Today, I received a happy surprise, as a neighbor gave me flowers.  Sometimes, it doesn't suck to live in the City of Cleveland.

Lake Erie Living

With the Metroparks takeover of our lakefront parks - more and more of us are awakening to the fact that we have been deprived access to this resource for years.  

Hey Republican National Convention organizers - we are so rolling out the red carpet for you ! We're LOOKING GOOD!

Submitted by lmcshane on Fri, 05/30/2014 - 08:53.

Here's the gateway to the ZOO ! You know, the number one tourist destination in Northeast Ohio!!! We made sure to keep everything "green" - the way our councilman prefers it! And, tell your friends: we bend over ass backward to accommodate for developers like Peter Rubin-Coral Group, the Ratners at Forest City, and Mitch Schneider. ENJOY the scenery :)

Inspiring Civic Engagement - Alonzo Mitchell turns 33

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 05/20/2014 - 13:53.

 Alonzo Mitchell III is an amazing young-ish man.  He looks younger than his 33 years and he is the catalyst for a ground swell of positive energy in CLE.  Without foundations, without powerful connections - Alonzo Mitchell III returned to Cleveland with enthusiasm and pride in his hometown.  He translated this energy into the marketing juggernaut Ohio Homecoming.


Good Enough - Repair Mentality in CLE

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 04/27/2014 - 17:21.

Theoretically - City of Cleveland has ordinance on books that would put electric wires underground - but that is too much work and when old poles rot, well then, CPP will replace, but has issues w/other stuff attached to their poles and this is the result -  GOOD ENOUGH!!

Massive Cri­­­minal Enterprise - CDCs are inherently corrupt -pass through Fed monies to Developers

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 01/26/2014 - 01:30.
Somewhere­­­­­ along the way, many of us at REALNEO, became aware of a real estate scheme that was hatched many years ago-using OPM-other people's money. For anyone, who might tune into REALNEO and write-off or marginalize the content here, please take a minute to review my personal history, which has led me to the conclusion that there is a massive criminal enterprise at work here.

Fortune Magazine gives CLE backhanded compliment

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 12/29/2013 - 03:44.

Fortune Magazine recently predicted that the market in NEO - will make Cleveland the "next" Brooklyn - break out real estate.  

Don't get too excited - the editors apparently don't know the difference between Columbus and Cleveland - their feature photo shows Columbus:

TY CLE - Perpetuate the Second Class - Parasitism

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 10:27.

 Thank you to my neighbors who voted in the same crud who perpetuate the cycle of abandonment and parasitism we live with in NEO.  Federal funds can't pour into a region unless there is an entrenched class of citizens deemed "second class."  

Well - this is our future - warehousing our elderly and the offspring of any child considered less fortunate because they had the misfortune to be labeled "Urban."

Good luck with your investment strategies!!!

VOTE Lanci for Mayor of Cleveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 08:07.

 Hello Residents of the City of Cleveland - you do have a choice.  

Please rid us of the corrupt "it is what it is..." mentality.  Get RID of Frank Jackson and Martin Sweeney - vote for transparency and accountability (at least there is a promise of something-anything better than the STATUS QUO).




Henry Senyak's Editorial Letter to PD

 I have been asked to post Henry Senyak's letter to the Plain Dealer editors - some of you may recall that Henry Senyak actually tipped WOIO Channel 19 off to the hijinks of Russo and Dimora -well BEFORE the PD even began to unravel the obvious story:

Plain Dealer machinations again...Please BELIEVE!!

Plain Dealer editorial choices for council are again - a joke.  I can't wait to read their "endorsement" for Sweeney.  What creative spin will they use this time???
