East Cleveland residents enjoy less than five minute access to major educational, cultural and medical institutions such as Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals, the Cleveland Art Museum, Severance Hall and the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Art and the world-renown Cleveland Clinic Hospital complex. With the rising cost of fuel, East Cleveland is poised to become one of the best “live-work” communities in Northeast Ohio.
One of the city’s crown jewels is its 2.2 square mile Forest Hills Park, which was once John D. Rockefeller’s summer home. The park boasts an impressive two baseball diamonds, tennis courts and walking trails that have retained the natural green space as intended by Rockefeller when he deeded the park to East Cleveland and the City of Cleveland Heights.
Once considered the “Beverly Hills of the North Coast,” East Cleveland is a community with affordable and pedigreed homes along Euclid Avenue that will soon be listed on the nation’s historic registers.
With major employers like the world headquarters of General Electric’s lighting division, and the newly-renovated $67 million McGregor Nursing Home founded by Rockefeller associate A.M. McGregor, East Cleveland is in the midst of an amazing comeback as one of the best communities to live in Northeast Ohio.
