Friendly neighborhood with a true sense of community. It's close to all major highways and the more expensive/trendy areas like Tremont or Ohio City. I'm eager for more businesses and some nightlife to attract a younger demographic and a more cohesive look on Pearl/State/Broadview. There's a lot of untapped potential!

I've lived in Old Brooklyn for 25 years. I most like it for the diversity and the easy access to the highways. It is part of Cleveland and the city services could be improved upon. We have had some safety concerns over the last several years with break ins, home invasions, theft. People keep their houses up in the area I live in and are friendly.
Has a great variety of miscellaneous shops as well as up and coming new niche business, plus the longevity of available bar options that serve good food and extraordinary friendly service. The zoo is nearby and parks for recreation.
