Brownfield in Cudell Neighborhood. Cleveland, Ohio.

From the Creative Class Chic of San Francisco to Rust Belt Chic Cleveland. Bank on the new “West” being the infill of the Rust Belt, and the journey to self-development the new aspirational geography. Integrity > Cupcakes. From the blog Homecoming Queen:

So what can Cleveland give me that San Francisco did not? Space. The real space of Cleveland — more living space, parking space, accessible wandering space — has seemed to open up more inner space in me. Here I feel like I have the emotional and spiritual room to think, to process, to contemplate ideas, to imagine possibilities, to ask questions, and to hear answers from my heart. In San Francisco I frequently felt stuck on a social carousel and struggled to keep up the pace — not because it wasn’t fun, but because I felt that so much fun came at the expense of my individual creativity, spirituality, and balance. Here I don’t need to compete against the world to get a piece of myself.
