Boston transplant, Laurel Beverly, recently sat down with my neighborhood to chat about what brought her to Downtown Cleveland’s Warehouse District and what’s keeping her here. After completing a partnership with the Cleveland Clinic, she and her husband thought about where to start their lives. Big-city names like New York and Chicago had a definite ring in their mind, but the lifestyle, culture and price of living in Cleveland is what ultimately landed them here. One of the biggest questions people and families have when considering the move into our city is the lifestyle and cultural acceptance of children in a city-setting. In our interview, Laurel also talks about her life downtown with a child and her thoughts on how the community supports families with children. Although she notes that she wishes there were more children in the city, she believes the environment is well-suited for her family and that the school systems prove to be positive for her daughter.When asked what she and her family do for fun in Cleveland, Laurel adds, “What isn’t there to do? We’re in walking distance from the restaurants, night life; we also take walks to Tower City to shop around, see movies or go to the film festival. We take our bikes down to the library and spend a lot of time with our little girl at the Science Center.” Living in Downtown Cleveland’s Warehouse District sure has its perks.
