Jefferson Reviews

1 review
I have lived in this neighborhood for 19 years and have been in business here for 30. It is a safe, friendly, diverse, down-to-earth, working class neighborhood with many parks and great public transportation. Very convenient to Downtown as well as Cleveland-Hopkins Airport. I would like to see some better bars and restaurants.
