The magazine did not state: "Lakewood has been on hipsters radar for some time"
It states: It has a well-established (and thriving) nightlife and gastronomic scene along Detroit Avenue, as well as a sizable gay and lesbian community".

Are you kidding me. Did they even go to Lakewood to visit. I really doubt if they did. Lakewood USE to be a great City and was a great place to live but not so much anymore. It was ruined by Mayor Cain and has slipped down steadily with the present administration. The streets are a mess and the planning that went on in that City is useless.

“Perfect? NO. Forgiven? YES!”

Actually if you read the sentence right before that, it says "this inner-ring suburb of Cleveland has been on the radar of the young and urbane for some time."

Lakewood is a wonderful area but visiting is made a hassle by all the meters. Don't take too much credit government officials, it is because of your moves that I , for the most part stay away from Lakewood. The area is wonderful in spite of the politicians not because of them.

I can see why Lakewood is the coolest especially when you compare it to;

Cruddy Suburbs
Euclid
East Cleveland
Garfield Hts
Parma

Manufactured Suburbs
North Royalton
Strongsville
Willoughby
Warrensville

Lakewood has a lot of personality like Cleveland Hts.

I guess it depends on the magazine and the writers point of view. Linndale would be voted 'best suburb' over at Speedtrap Magazine!

Radar for what? More gays and lesbians?
And I did read it. It states the the food at the melt is unhealthy, the picture that it shows was taken from the upper part of Edgewater park.

The only thing that will stand out in the whole stupid peice is that we have a sizable gay and lesbian community.

They are going to celebrate singing YMCA and dress up and wear nice colors like maroon and mauve. They will have a sip of wine with "friends" and rainbow stickers will be handed out. It will be a joyous occasion.

Lakewood has been on the decline since the early eighties. Fitzgerald is looking for some free publicity with election time getting near.

If you drop your keys in Flakewood, kick them into Cleveland before bending over to pick them up.
