The Downtowns of Ohio

Believe it or not there are Midwest newspapers I don’t read online. One of them is the Toledo Blade. So thanks to Burgh Diaspora for pointing out this recent series there about the downtowns of Ohio. It is especially notable how even the best performing are losing significant numbers of private sector jobs.

This series is well worth reading.

In a bit of bonus Ohio news, after a three-year closure, the Cleveland Museum of Art is set to re-open the first phase of a $350 million expansion and renovation. Two new Rafael Viñoly designed wings are being added to the neo-classical main building.
