This attractive partly wooded first grade residential section is lacated on the
narthwestern boundary of Cuyahoga Co~ty fronting an Lake Eri e. Particular asset
af this ar ea, lyi ng o~ be th sides of adjoining parks, is the drawing power of i ts
de,s irabl e beach :faciliti es (lake franta,ge on the western half of the County is
largely wi thout beach facilities being situated an generaJ.ly ab~t elevation
overlooking the l ake in the cities of Rocky River and Lakewoad). !rhis clean
neighborhood was platted in 1925 and is now 2/5% built up wi th uni ferm single
residence s t nat reflect strong pride of ownership. ,All stroets are concroto wi th
camplete installation of util i ties. Fifte en now homtl were eonstructed horo during
the past 12 months. Good restricti ons will hold this area' a attractiveness to
professional and busi ness men, but future growth will bo fairly slow ~ue to the
outlying location and weak transportation sorvico (hourly bus). Note: olectrifiod

6. DESCRLmON AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:
This residential neighbarhood was laid out 12-15 years ago; new 30% built up with
1½ story homes ($5000-$6000) and 10% cottages; average lot front 40-50 feet; all
u.tilities mstalled; homes set back: 30-35 feet fram lot liDe; good sehoal faeilities; bus transportation ( an half-hoUJF schedule during rush hours and then o:n the
hour). A fine, restricted and fairly new residential secti0n of Fairview, with
fairly streng appeal ta the small bu.sim.ess men and whi to-cellared wo,r ker whe
wants to live in the west-end; new construction is mostly oast af Speneer;
soutkorn and eastern boundary claso to Motropoli tan Park. Tho outlying laeation
and tho transportation proiblem are sales-resisting faetars to some extent. This,
Raturally, affects the rental prices also - top rental here is $45.00 in hemes
worth around $6000. Anothei:- oontri'buting retarding fact0r is tho ihigh school
tax ($90.00 per yea:r per praperty). Dospito these apparent handicaps, the aroa,
on tho whole, shows a firm to upward trend; now construction will, no doubt,
co:ntinue moro or less at present ratio. No foreign infiltration. Tho area is
accorded a fair first grade rating.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:
1his ~ery desirable residential section has the high.est restrictions in ])J.clid,
Development was begun about 15 years ago but proceeded only gradually and did Jiot
gain momentum until within the last 5 years. ID!Provement restrictiom.s 0n streets
betweEm ])igecliff Blvd. and Lake $hQre :Sl vd. are set at a mini·mum eost 0:f $8000
(lots 45 x 133 ft. to 180 ft.). Restrictions £or lake frontage property 0:n
F,dgecliff Blvd. are censiderably higher at $12,000 (lots 50 to o/0 ft. frontage).
The Preperty Owners Cammi ttee in this area mu.st pass on :net only the type of
construction but also the eligibility of the prespective home owner. The beaen
privileges; club house and small park are maintail!led by d.ireet levy on ow:ners
within this subdivision. The most expensive homes (approximately 10) are loeated
on E:lgecliff :Sl vd. and range in value from $15;000 to $18;00~. The lfuturo for th:i..s
7f/f, built up aroa, with its rigid _restrictions and recently strong business building
activity, will conti:nuo to maintain its high standard of desirability for many
years.
*Percentages noted for ttoccupancy" and 11 owner oecupancyJ1 are based on the fact
that this area contains about 100 homos of w'hicll 6-8 are new constructions
vacant .;.. for salo and about 6 homes tenant-occupied,

8. IDESCIUmON AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:

!rhis very desirable residential seetian has the secand n:ost rigid restrietiens in
Eu.clid. I~rovements a» streets between Lake Share and Edgeeliff :Slvds. are
limited to $6000 (lats 40-50 ft. ;x; 135 ft. d8J)th) and on ])igecliff :Blvd. lake
frantage is restricted ta $10,000 iI¥>rovements (lots f0-60 ft. frentage). This
area also has beaeh facilities exclusive to this neighbarhood• s residents, and
restrictions here also require that not only plans of pr0perty. JJDJ.st be passed on
by Property Ow:neri: Committee but aJ.sa the eligibility af the p:uaspeetive home
ewner in this section" Cost af maintaining this facility, including upk:'oep of
park and beaoh, is paid by direet levy an individual property owners in this area.
Future trend for this 65~ bull t up area is very fav0rable, and predicated an its
recent building activity and high restrictions, no detrimental influences will
affect this area far many years. Its lower ~estrietion 011. building costs than
Ut0pia :Beach ,{/,5 to the west (A-30)will, in all probability, ea.use n:ore building
activity here. No rentals have been availabl.e in this area for the past several
mnths.
*Percentages used for 11 0ccupancy'' and "Owner occupancy" are based on the
fact that area ihelu.des about 175 houses af which approximately 10
new censtructions are unoeeupied by ownors or vacant for sale and
about 10 houses are tenant-occupied.

8. DESCRIPTION ANJD CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:
~is large area, eastern half fronting 0n Lake Er!ie with beaeh facilities was
laid out about 30 years ago and is n0w 1E5% bull t up. Resi-dential develepment
has been concentrated largely in the eastern half principally along the lake.
The advantage of having the nearest desirable beach facilities to the downtown
area is a drawing :po•ner but early spotty development semewhat depreciates the
tetter homes. Hov,3~er, restrictions do net permit SUIIlller e0tta.ge construeti0n
now and the few e,;l;{ti11g struetures are steadily being removied. Develepment has
been slow due to cu'Jlying leeation and weak transportation (heurly bus). Hewever,
30 new homes ,vere constructed here in the past 12 moi:iths principally on Wolf Rd.,
l3osbarn Rd., and Oakmoor Ave. ( eastern part). All utilities are installed;
streets are concrete and oil macadam; average lot fron ta.ge is 40 ft. Future
growth of area will be a.long conservative lines but attractiveness as a residential section will increase as the closer-in areas became zmre fully developed.
The presonce of the New York Central RR running parallel with the south.an
boundary of area as a sales resistant factor is l~gely discounted by local
real tors, since the roadbed is hedged in by trees.

!l?his area, locate d in the southe ast corner of Rocky River. was pla tted
15 years
a&0; cmlY 10~ built up; develop ment is concen trated along wester
ly border of area

on Pa.rkvi ew, .Bonnie :Sank. Westov er and Lavern e Avenues (all paved) ; gas,
light
and water install ed; within walkin g distanc e (1/4 mile) to schools . and
shoppin g
distri ct; bus transp ortatio n only. Practi cally the entire section lying
east of
W. 199th St. is unpla.t ted large parcel s held in estates . Dormancy of area
in all
probab ility will continu e for next few years until develop ment in tho abuttin
g
first grade areas ( to the north and south) becomes heavy enough to enhanc
e the
prospe ct of develo ping this second grade area sandwic hed betwee n them.
:Soarin g
out this opinio n is the fact that tho small amount of desira ble valley
frontag e
in those abuttin g first grade areas will be fully dovelop ed first and the
presen t
structu res in this second grade area., althoug h only 1oi bull t up, indica
te that
a simila r or bettor type of homes will bo built here.

However, new eon.struction lilas been better than restrictfon-s but laek 0f

at present consists of 18 homes built last year ranging in price from $6750 to
$7950. Construction is excellent; · homos are predominantly of brick, gas lieated
and restrictions aro strongly enforced by developer who intends t0 build 40 mare
houses 0n two :new streets boing installed south oif Shereviow bet\veon E. 260th

the area is being sl0wly transformed into a fair residential neigllbor ho0d with

Streets are unpaved (oil treated!) but are graded nnd
have oeme,n t sidewalks; all utilities insta!l.led. Th!i.sex>mmunity, t-h:reugh the
depression ha.rd hit 1 y unamployment, presented a rather shoddy appearance due to
lack of maintenance but within the last 24 months has seen a. 25% imprevement
because of eonsidoro.hlo repairing nnd remodeling. Area has hnd ne now construction since tho deprossion. The industrial o.roo., a.butting wost boondnry of nren,
.formorly housed the IE.torsto.te Plant which m0Ved from area and aaused considera.blo unemployment to rosidonts of tnis soctien, many of whom lest their hemes by

employmont to ro sidonts of this area. No progl'a.m of new construction is 0inticipa.tod for this soction but it should romo.in sto.blo for the next few years. The

8. DESCRIPTION AND OHARACTBRIS'llCS OF AREA:

!rhis better grade workingman ' s district now 90% built up was a natural growth ~
the last developm ent inside the limit• of Cleveland proper in this direction and received inmediate occupancy by publ ie ser~ee men (by law enf1orced te live
in city limits) . Inhabitan ts in this area are of better tn>e 2nd generatio n of
foreign stock from the heavily populated 4th grade area to the north. Catholic
Church· immediat ely to north is stabilizi ng influence on holding this occupancy ,
However the lack of preper 7e st:rictfon s allowed the interming led construct fon of
two-famil y with single dwellings , which al though well. kept in most cases penalize
the values of abutting singles. Desirabi lity of this area as a workingm an's
district is strong beeau.se of its proximity to downtown and nearby industry.
Stability of ihcome of 't nha,bi tan ts has kept foreclosu res low and ;properti.e s· for
sale have found a ready market. !fhe northwest ern proj action of area is oldest
(homes average 25 yrs .. ) while the southern part is newer (homes average 15 yrs.)
iJi,.o·. on11, pozt of o.roa· loft for dovolopm ant is in the southeast ern corner - east
of !rurney Rd. Future of area will be stable for the next 3-5 yrs_.

abou.it 15 years old wi th 30 ft. grass strips between crurb and sidewalk and an

and t;·m-family homes on this :Baulevard arc the best in area mid range in priee
from $5,400 to $12,000. However, sales of those fl'rune properties have been
steadily at lower prices; due to the fact that expensivenoss of developmont
was not warranted in this section. Tb.is stroot, hewevor, stands out as the best
in wholl.e area. Whether infil trati0n from the nertb will gain much hoad;1a;y d'Ul"ing
the next 3 to 5 years or more is problematical bu.t it dees constitute a serious
threat to adjacent property values. On tho whole, sales prices :for this section
should remain stable due te :fairly strong demand and advantae;oous. facilities

With the exeeption. of the narthtrnstern part ( where development began abaut 25 yrs.
ago), the balar.iea of this area \Vas a '11musb.room growth" heavy ~vi th 2-familios
occurring about 15 yrs., principally, of 11 jerry-buildersn and has resulted lll
heavy for eclosures and insti tutionaJ. ownorshi:Jl) af properties. Ocm,pcmey hiere
began with an extremely heavy infil t:oatien of Russian- Jewish f:Fom the down too
4th gTade area around Woodland-55th betweon the years af 1920-30. The older 4th
grade area lying to . tho wost has steadily moved ea.st into tthis section due t0 the
colored encroaehmont in that 4th grado area., whieh also threatens this seetion
al though exell.usion of Nogro occupancy bas been restricted to tho 4th grade aroa
as shown on ~ . Tho cheapness of construction ho.s tendod to increase the lack
of property maintenance, al.so partly charactorii.stic of tho area. Lots in this
area a~ero.ge 40 1 frontage wd arc dovolopod about 70~. However, such streets as
E, 147th. & E. 149th aro undovolopod oxeept for the immediate vicinity of Kinsman
(main thoroughfare ond 'business conter) . Future for this soeti0n apJ!>cars s·table
for only a short period due t o present real estate conditions but to all nppcarancos the pressure from advancing Negro and Itolian infiltration. into abutting
4th grade territory will , no doubt, spread into this . section, aJ.th~~
present
westom boundary of this area now ma:rks tho extent of thoir eastwarc\_ movement.

st. Develepment in this area proceeded from western boun.da.ry t0 the east about
30 yrs. ago into lots ranging from 35 1 to 45 1 frontage and has beoome one of the
better heavily ·populated Hungarian and Slavish neighborhoads, new 100% built up,
with a higher percentage of 2-family homes than singles. The staibil 1 ty of neighborhood is held by the advantagos of proximity to :Lndust;ry lying to tho west, the
Woodland Hills Park ( south boundary), ch'l.ll'ches, soeial buildings, schools a11d
good tralll.sportation. :rhe area's ma.in arteries are the heavily trafficked Buckeye

age of property, heavy mixture of 2-families and heavy foreign occu.pancy rate
this area no more than Zrd grade but its stabil,i ty will hold for several. y,ears
duo to tho strong homo-owning. character of residents and area's advantages
mentioned above. Sovoral laz:ge apartm0llts are located in northern part abutting

8. DESCRIPTION ANO CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:
Tho majority of t~is area, fo~ly owned by the WQ.de Estate, w0;s cut up lllto
large paFeols and !leveloped with ox:po:nsive oansions beginning ab0ut 1905 for the
occupancy of wealthy families ,1ho m:>ved here from tho olcl ultra-fashioned Eaelid
Ave. disttiict duo t~ thoiir being erowded out by oncroaehi.Rg business. From 1920
death blo:ws t0 this area' s values were: oncirelin.g heav, foreign in:fi'i]tJratien
into abutting areas, principally Russian-Je\i'ish int0 sectfon to the nertheast;

to the exclusive Shaker Heights subdivision botwe~ 1920-30. Thon too, eriginal
:rres:trictior.is to residential use on Wade allotments are at expira.tion p0int now.
Virtually 90% of the original omors of these large ho·mes have mved fr0m this
soction. This has had a detrimental effect also en the mrurket vtll.ue 0f smaller
singl~family homes wb.ich aro located in the northerly portion of area. iBecause
of the proximity of those large homes to the collogo buildings abutting sou.ta
boundary, many· of theln hnve been converted in t0 rooming houses, boarding hou.ses
and small educational institutions in thomseivos, such as: musie schools, art
schools and fratarni ty houses. At present it is estimated these fine homes,
somo costing $300,000, now bring lOp or less on the o:rriginal dollar cost.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA: !l!lis aroa contains a largo foreign
popula tion (predooin antly ·Polish) of strong church-go ing, home-lov ing character . !!!le
concentra tion of Catholic churches and schools in this area have had a stabilizi ng
influonco · on values and continue to hold strongly tha heavy occupancy of this group.
Pride of ownership is particula rly noticeabl o in driving thro~ou t area: \Vithin the
rather lioi ted incomo of tho inho.bi ton ts, a larger porcenta{ ;o of m derniza tion,
renovatio n and care of grounds is m r o ovii:lar1t hOl'e than in some areas 10- 15 years
younger. The i nformed real tor• s opinion is that mrtgage collectio ns here are very
favorable and loans on lioi ted basis of appraisal are bei ng satisfact orily I:lll.cle.
!!!le COIJOorciol di strict for area lies along Wade Park and Superior, principo. lly a t
the i ntoreccti ons of E. 71st and E. 82nd on Suporior. !!!le tvro- faoily structuro s
are scattered in groups of 6 to 10 throughou t area, oostly along E. 71st and E. 79th.
Sing]. e-faoily structure s a.re, in many cases, of the scall long ono-floer plan typo.
Cor:mnmity has its native charo.cte ristic of many fonced-in lots, some of ornat1enta l
iron, others of well- kept and painted poline; type. Future for area should rez:iain
stable with little change, except the gradual obsolesce nce of propertie s duo to age.
Change in populatio n would only result i~ the occupancy of prop erty by Polish upon
vacancy by Junorican stock. !rhis area is virturuly 100% built up.

This third grade are0J1 s development
vnries consi&erahly both in age ani size of lets and structures. Earliest develo~me:n.t began in the eastern portion between E. 128th and the railroad. with small 5
room homes on lots ranging fr0m 30-35' fr0ntage and 75-80' depth no:w W0rth $3200-3600.
The northern part 0f area iii the small secti0n farmed sy Sellers Ave. and F.ddy Rd. was
developed about 25 yrs. ago with small single homes and an occasional small twe family
home on 35' x 90 1 lo ts now worth $4a)0-$4600 (singles) $5500-$60()0 ( two :family).
Balance of area was deve1.oped 15-00 years age, predominan.tly wi. th singles north 0f
Gray Ave. to St. Clair and heavily mixed with two families {lots 40 1 x 125 1 )south orf
Bra.ckland west of E. 128th, now worth $6000 to $&500 except lllwrnhill Dr. whieh is
s0lidly built up with large 6 rm. suite two f amill.ies on 50 1x.U50 1 l0t s in tl:le $85CX) t0
$9000 class. A heavy influx of Jewish 2nd & 3rd genera:tio.ns began i.n the southern
part of this section (so.of Braekland and ea.st 0f E. :128th)between 1920-30 and has
continued steadily from that time. Balance of avea is predominantly J\merican with
mixture of 2nd generation foreign) except for small concentration of Jewish no.of
St.Clair on E.115th,E. 117th and E. 118th. Property values have remained stali>le
since recovery from depression lows about 1935 and future trend appears f avo~able, althougll the -probability of continued Jewish infiltration mczy ha,.re a detrimental effect.
However, the location of Lutheran and Catholic churches in northern part will tend
to arrest this infiltration due to their hold on property owners in their parish.

8. DESCR:ImON AND CHARACIERISTICS OF AREA: This area kn.own as t.lile Ha;yden Seetion
was developed ab0ut 25 years ~ 0n 40 ft. front lets and is 'Fl:0w ~r@rlmately io/%
limiit up. The de sir aoili ty of area is based primarily ©l'il its aceess to iaearby indu.s tries such as the Fisher Body Plant, Nati0nal ~e, Willard Ster~ BaitteFY, ete.
(within walking distance to transpertation , sch09?s 8Iild clm:rclles). The <fuetrimenta1
infl:u.ence to the area is the fact that it is henmed in 'by the Belt Line ,J&R (west
ib,·01.Wldary) and the M. Y.C. RR (s0u.thea.:t bounda:cy). .Apartments in. area are I,>rinciI,>ally
located. along first, Sec0nd, aJild 'i;!hird Streets arui aleng Woedwe:rth Rd. am. !Nczyden
Ave. The business district fo:r this area is leeated p:rineipaJ.ll.y at the inte1?seeti0n
ef $1'law and Hayden. Retail district lies mostly all.0ng Heyden. ave. Triangular seetioE. f0rmed by Heyden - Shaw and N.Y .c. RR !:las t!he slightest eo,1 :icentrati0n 0f tW0
family dwellings. Other tw0 family dwellings are seattereCil i11 the seetion north @f
Shaw bult east of flao1den exrcept that n@ "two-families" are l@cated on E1mwood, Hampton
and Shawview on this part. The low income of fact0ry workers who predominantly
0ccupy, this area, has caused a rental si tuati0n here adverse t0 the holding 0f av:estmen t property. Loss of time and general unemploymez:it (J?ecel\lt strikie at lF.isber

8. DESCRlFI'ION AND CHARAcrERISTlCS OF AREA:

This area was laid out a.bout 30 yrs.
and fir s t developed along Canterbur y, Land.seer and Cornwall Rds. (some 50 1
lots) with single homes; then about 25 yrs. ago cottages on 40 1 lots were built
along Sclleneley , Crcstland , Ingleside and Wind.ward but only constitute 5% of the
structure s in thi s area. Thes e cottages range in the bracke:t from $2500-$30CO
and singlo homes($45 00-$7000) have been built all around them.
This ?al, built up area laJT" dormant following the depre ssion up until 3 yrs.
ago when some building activity occurred (mostly owner-con tracted). A few homes
on Canterbu ry Rd; are above the $7000 class. The commercia l-.distric t and transportation f or this area is loca ted on E. 185th ( west boundary ); schools and clmrche s are convenien tly nearby. Age of neighborh ood and mixture of cottages ond.
small homes cstabJ,ish this neighborh ood as a 3rd grade area which should remain
stable for the next few years.

beach ;.llld a short two street development (E. 205th. and ?Qath Sts.)wi. th small 1Lots
approx. 40 x 60 developed :with mixed 1 - l½ ond 2 story :fraroe dwellings with the
exception of two small brick homes recently constructed. Residents in. this
neighborhood share beach facilities with the }:lotel ai:ld. ail.th©ugh properties la.ek
uniformity and have the al_i)pearance of ah.esp con~truction, res:i!d.ents are desirable
.Americans and occupancy demand is very st:ron~. Hotel has waiting list of 500
applicants for small two...room apartments at $38.50 per month. Development of
homes in this small area is solid on the east and west sides of E. 205th mid o:a
the west side tf E. 206th but the east side of E. 206th is vacant except for four
houses on the southem end. A frame co-mm~r.cial structure at the uyu of E, 205th
and E. 206th, formerly a comroo.rcial apartment struoture, has been remodeled into
a four family structure.
The fututo for this area appear stable but its present status creates a
distiiact break between desirable oreas abutting the east and west boundaries and
results in some sales resistance to properties immediately abutting this sectiolil,

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA: Tr, is large 3rd grade area, n0w about
20'%, built up, had its first dovelop:nent in the northwe stern part and southwestern
hook project ion about 25 yrs. ago when these streets were built up with sumnar
cottage s (beach faciliti es) . Development in th~ area frcm east boo.ndary (east of
E. 260th St.) along side streets is very light consisti ng of only a f ew scattere d
homes (most streets unpaved). However t along E. 250th ( southern half) wi tbih
the past three years consider able buildin g activity has occurred. sponsore d by
Moses Helper. Here large lots (mostly acre parcels) have been develo:ped with
homes ranging in value from $4000-$ 6500 (mostly frame mixed with an occasion al
brick {,tructu re ).
Sales hav.e been good in this new development (10 built here last year).
However, on the whole, this area suffers from lack of transpo rtation, distance
to schools , stores an:l churche s. Nearest availab le transpo rtation is half-hou r
bus service on Lake Shore Blvd. (northe rn boundary) and at intersec tion of Babbit
Road and Lakelan d :Boulevard (west of extreme southern part of area) 20 min. service. Upson Groo.e School for this distric t is located in northea stern part between Gilmore and Shorevie w at E. 260th St.

and street allotment confines of Salon, Ohio; :founded over ]100 yrs. age - now:
only about 15-20% built ~p. Terrain is fa:i.Ji'ly level Wit residential devel0pment
is centered mostly in the ;portion of area immediately south of the railroad: yard
area; the older cheaper develo;pnent is along Old Main aru1 ~l0m Ris. in the railroad. yard area. This area su:ffered. a severe setback during the late 1,;oo,1 s when
the ever-allotment and improvement of streets (Bainbridge m•. sub-div.) !Placed the
conmunity heavily in debt forcing the rosFead 0f a $300,000 bonded indebtedness
over the whole village. At the present time there are approx. 2900 vacant lots•
.An a.ddit:ii.onal drawback to this community is the absence of any l0eal souree of
industrial employmei:i.t; transportation to Ql.eveland. industrial ~ea ( 9 mi .distant)
is only via combination morning and evening train. service. School facilities
consist of centralized grade and high school.
IR the past ps., Solon has haa.
little or no construction activity within this area but thoroughfares leadiang out
of community have been developed with many chec:1p constncted. small homes (36 in'38)
some without basements. Zoning restrictions for the. township,, however, now prohibit this type of construction. Above mentioned heavy Village indebtedness reStllted in many foreclosures. Over 100 of the a:pprox.400 dwelling structures
changed hands between '28- 137 for this reason.

years ago, undeveloped farm land surrounMng a small negro settlement. Area
was then broken up into 1-5 acre parcels selling for approx. $300 an a.ere az:id
specu.lativ:e development began at a rapid rate with small frame d.well.li~s, mstly
with.out basement in tlile 1-1½ sty. 4-5 room t~.
Informed real tor 1 s op~nion is that sales have been moo.e on most ll.ilDeral
terms and by a variety of typos of eonveyaz:ices. Tl:le wisdom of this finaRcing
policy bas been questioned. by some real.tors but constraction has continued
rapidly and sales have been satisfactory.
At present, area is about 40% developed ond al though cheap, is attractive
because of its newness, However, lack of transportation, proximity to negro
settlement (abutting area) and distance to schools, stores ar,id churches limit
this area to 3rd grade. .Area has limited utility facilities; has electrieity,
lacks sewer and most parts are without gas and water.

8. ·oESCRimON AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:

This small area, virtually all negro neighborhood of shaeks ud smail homes, was
the result of a movement or colored laborers to this section about 25 yrs. ago
in the hope of securing employment with :the Best FoUlldry and Am:lrioan Stov:e Co .
in Bedford. Realtor's opinion is that this neighborhood was originally formed·
·
on a II s~uatter's
rights II 'gs.sis, later settled by olaim and deed oonveyanoe for
small sums so that most pl"operties are actually owned. Population of this
neighborhood is abo"1t 50 colored fa.miHes and some 7 or 8 Italian families within
border. Gco1.:1po.ncy is full and, although little rental :inform.a.tion is o.vo.ilo.ble,
it is tho1.:1ght tho.t any tenancy is on some future sales arrangement. The City of
Bedford has no interest in, and will not annex, this little ool!lllunity known as
11
Lineoln Heights" £or its relief rolls aro h00.vy Md area is unpaved aind lacks
o.ll utility fncilities except oleotricity in some pnrts . It wns also at~ted
~ho.t most residents in this neighborhood o.ro employed in Cleveland ~nd not in
Bedford. Beonuse of its cheapness (even to colored) o.nd distmice from Clovelo.nd
(employment souroo) it is not beliovod this colorod oomnunity will expand o.nd
probably will decrease within tho next few yoo.rs with tho rise -in numoer of un.inha•itable units.

adjacent colored occupancy existed. This has accounted for an increase of 173
colored families in the neighborh ood during the past 4-5 yrs. However, institutio ns
now have mutually agreed not to sell to colored but the presence or colored scattered
throughou t the area has taken its toll on values and nwner ous "for sale 11 signs furnish evidence that more desirable occupants are leaving this section . Despite
unwilling ness of institutio ns to sell to colored, several realtors have commented on
the fact that some descenden ts of original Orthodox Jewish occupants in this area
have not been unwilling to sell to colored and this consti tutes a further threat to
price values . Two-family homes are scattered throughou t area, principal ly concentrated along side streets close to E. 105th and built in rows of 10-12 in the
souther n part ·o f area . Orthodox Jewish ownership is heaviest in thait portion .north
of St .· Clair . Some infiltrat ion of Italian from the southeast abutting 4th rrade
area has occurred into this section. Rentals in this fully built-up, heavilyoccupied area remain good due to proximity to neighborhood convenien ces and good
transport ation on E. 105th St . Were it not for the above informati on, this area,
to the casual observer, would appear to be a good 3rd gFa<ile neighborhood because of
several wide streets, large shade trees and good homes (Drexel; Grantwood); although
area on the whole shows l~ck of maintenan ce . It is difficult to forecast the future
of this area but the fact that mortgage funds are not available , institutio nal
holdings are large, majo!I'ity of occupants are not maintaini ng propertie s anc;i Giesirable residents are leaving indicate that this is an area that has j 1 tst reached 4th
grade and will continue to decline .
With respect to colored occupancy in this security area, U. S. Post Office surv:ey
revealed that there were 273 colored families located by street as follows ;

following the naturo.l growth of CleirelAnd, was heavily developed between 1905-15
by other promoters . Original occupnnts of this section were of Amerioan stock

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERJSTICS O:F AREA:
This small area lying in the southwestern oornQr of East Clevel8.l'ld abutting
Lake View Cemetery, Goff-Kirby Coal Yard and railr0ad is the least desi~able
residential secti0n of this c0nnn.unity. This section was laid out ab0ut 45
years ag0 and lots average about 35 ft. fr0ntage. The prese,n t 0ccupants
have utilized original large single family structures as multiple unit
h0using and population de:nsity in this seet:i:0n. is very heavy. The informed
real tor I s opinion is that :no mortgage funds have been available, e,ve,n 0n
limited terms, for the past 15 years in this areo.. Oeeupants nre 0f the
lowest income bracket, and relief rolls have been exceptionally heavy here,.

mixed with a few c0nvort0d two- family structures ranging from 1- 1½ to 2 sty,.
dwellings. Occupancy here was always of the werki.ng class a.na heaV'ily populated by foreign. Within the past few·yea!l7s, a s l E>W infiltration of oolered
has occurred 'Who now live , principally, on Thames and Darvrin in the western
part of this section. The long eo.sterly prejection of this area is n stl"jp
of properties abutting the main thoreughfare Waterloo Rd. running from E. 152ll.d
te E. 185th. Properties in this long strip either adjoin er abut :many light
industrial or semi- commercial properties. Traffic is very heavy along this
thoroughfare (Waterloo), Informod realtor·' s opinion is that londi ng instituticms will not mo.ke loons in this section or, if at all, only prinnrily in
tha.t part of area west of E. 140th which contains tho botto:17 properties and
more desirable occupants. Future fer this 75Yo built up a.roa. will bo sle:wly
