Best Cleveland Neighborhood

Goodrich-Kirtland/St. Clair-Superior

This neighborhood, approximately between East 30th Street and East 79th Street, north of Payne Avenue, isn't flashy, but it's immensely livable. It's got a good blend of homeowners and renters. Homes are affordable and close to downtown. It has a full-sized grocery store, a Croatian bakery, an Asian shopping plaza, and restaurants whose fare ranges from Ethiopian to Slovenian to Korean. It's also the most ethnically mixed neighborhood in the city, with good representations of blacks, whites, Asians, and Latinos.
