Cleveland Hoods: Down The Way
To start, the heart of the East Side has been Down Tha Way, an area in the neighborhood officially known as Central and home to the majority of the Cleveland projects, ranging from Cedar and 30th to Woodland and Bundy Drive.
For years this area has been broadcasted and highlighted for its much street activity. From decades of conflicts and neighborhood wars, like Case Court against Longwood, to old school reputable Cleveland gangs of the King Kennedy Outlaws and the Brick City Outlaws.
With Cleveland hoods like the Cedar Estates (known strictly as 30th), Unwin, Cedar and 33rd, Longwood (rebuilt into the Arbor Pointe complex, but still referred as Longwood), Case Court and the Compound of the large Outhwaite complex, and Bundy Drive’s Delaney Village, as well the former high rise of King Kennedy, there should be no surprise of the amount of activity within the area.
Cleveland Hoods: In The Way
The smallest section of the East Side, is an area known to some as In The Way community. This area is home to two notorious neighborhoods of the Garden Valley and the Morris Black Cleveland projects. Alongside the two housing projects, there Cleveland hoods of Cedar Avenue, Quincy Avenue, Broadway, and Fleet Avenue.
Today, with Cedar and Quincy’s close location to the Cleveland Clinic, the area is slowly disappearing. The expansion and construction of the hospital has been pushing residents and businesses out of the community. While, Garden Valley became one of the first housing projects in Cleveland to be torn down during the 2010s. Now newly rebuilt, what is left is the smaller complex of Rainbow Terrace.
Cleveland Hoods: Up The Way
Up The Way, which can also be referred as Uptown or the South Side, is a well-known section of the city. Many reside along Kinsman, Buckeye, Miles, or Harvard as many families have had generations of relatives living “Up The Way”, especially in the Mt. Pleasant community.
Based around several major streets, the South Side is large enough to be home to Cleveland hoods along Kinsman, from Kinsman and 93rd to the Kinsman 40s. Areas of 116th, home to John Adams high school and numerous reputable blocks, from Benham to Lenacrave. The long stretch of Harvard, from J Park to Jo Ann Park, or the small sections of Buckeye Road and Miles Avenue, eventually expanding to the suburbs of Warrensville Hieghts, Maple Heights, and Garfield Heights.
Cleveland Hoods: Out The Way
Out The Way, located in Northeast Cleveland, is the largest section of the city, becoming well known for the various Cleveland hoods of Collinwood, Hough, which includes Wade Park, Hough Harlem and Hough Heights, or the 105th and St. Clair area of Glenville, nicknamed the 10-5 and the Wasteland.
Rewinding back to the 1950s, the black community would slowly expand into the northeast side communities of Hough and Glenville. Eventually, especially following racial tension and riots, from 55th to 152nd, along either St. Clair or Superior would become predominantly African American. Now, many are leaving the East Side for the suburbs, like Cleveland Heights, South Euclid, and surrounding areas.
