Ranking Your Neighborhood

Ranking Your Neighborhood Which is the best community in Northeast Ohio to live in? The one with the best schools, the least crime, the most stable housing values? Cleveland Magazine is now gathering data for its most popular annual issue "Rating the Suburbs." Many Northeast Ohio mayors, though, say it's not about who is best but what's best for our region. They contend the suburbs ranking issue does little but sell magazines and sow dissension. How does your neighborhood tally up? Should it matter if your city is number 1, 10 or 20? Should "rating the suburbs" rate so much concern? Wednesday at 9 on 90.3. *Photo courtesy Rocky River, Ohio website.
