CLEVELAND IN 50 MAPS
Dan Crissman, editor of Cleveland in 50 Maps will talk about the book on Wednesday, December 4th at 7 p.m at the Coventry Library, 1925 Coventry Rd. in Cleveland Heights
There are thousands of different ways to map a city. Roads, bridges, and railways help you navigate the twists and turns, topography gives you the lay of the land, and population growth shows you its changing fortunes. But the best maps let you feel what that city's really like.
Cleveland in 50 Maps deconstructs the Forest City in surprising new ways. In it you will be able to follow the changing locations of breweries, music venues, and commuter rail lines over time. Track the Clinic's growing east side footprint, see the year-by-year attendance at the Jake, and note the addition of communities to the Cultural Gardens. Find out which local high schools produce the most NFL players and which locations the major presidential candidates visited in 2016. Discover the massive salt mine under Lake Erie and the barricades on the border of Shaker Heights. This book provides cultural insights in a unique visual history.
