HORSESHOE CASINO’S “OPPORTUNITY SKYWALK” IN DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OHIO: A VISUAL MONSTROSITY

Submitted by Satinder P S Puri on Thu, 01/23/2014 - 21:23.

The skywalk, which officially opened on 12-31-13, is located diagonally across the intersection of Superior Avenue and Ontario Street.

Because of its large dimensions: 175 ft. long, approximately 16 ft. wide and approx. 16 ft. high, the skywalk is a visual monstrosity. It is out of scale and just does not fit in the cityscape.

What do Chris Christie and Rob Ford have in common? They're Toast

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/11/2014 - 20:25.

 It is inconcievable to me that Gov. Christie was not in the loop.  

Come on.  One of the best "practical jokes" I have ever heard of...

Lane closures to teach the unsupportive mayor.   

Practical jokes don't go undiscussed...that's the fun part...backslapping each other and snorting in laughter about the practical joke. 

We had practical jokes at work - everyone knew about the jokes, including the management.

No buildings higher than two stories, streets are cobblestones. McDonald's had to conform, and their restaurant here (more expensive than US I guess, close to $5 for a Big Mac, although it sells as a combo with fries and soft drink.

Simple sign outside.

 

Inside, the standard counter.

Night Out - Living the Shopping Cart Lifestyle

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 12/18/2013 - 18:41.

When you live the shopping cart lifestyle, you don't need to remember your front door key when you leave your cart. 

You don't need to worry about rent either.   Just find a park or some public property and your life's belongings are probably going to be alright for a few hours.  

In America you have a lot of options on how to live!
