Did he realize that the forest on the bluff above him would become the city that would bear his name? And how did “Cleaveland” lose an “a”? We can’t tell you what Moses was thinking, but we do weigh in on the missing vowel in this prowl, which will escort you around Public Square, the heart of the city and one of the first areas that Cleaveland laid out as part of his 1796 survey to establish the city. You will hear how the village based on a New England town transformed into a tony residential neighborhood and then was surrounded by large civic buildings. This prowl is about 37 minutes and was recorded in Summer 2008. Interviewed in this prowl were: Bill Tyler, Docent for the Soldiers and Sailors Monument Paul Volpe AIA, Architect & Planner of the 2006 Public Square Plan, City Architecture Subscribe to this podcast by using this RSS feed.

CityProwl Mini: Soho

Well, I finally finished this puppy. A few days turned into weeks when the whole family got that cold going around in March. This mini prowl, only about 5 1/2 minutes long, features the flavor of a vibrant Soho street life, enhanced by 'revelers' celebrating Italy's win of the soccer World Cup. I expect Cleveland to match this at some of our summer festivals this year, like Ingenuity. Subscribe to this podcast by using this RSS feed. Download now.
