Midtown

Midtown is a neighborhood of neighborhoods — Overton Square, Cooper Young, Vollintine Evergreen, and many other distinct communities sit within its borders. Neighborhood identities are strong, but throughout the area, streets are wide and green, hipsters and hundred-year-old houses are commonplace, and politics are generally liberal. Midtown is known for eclectic, local options in food, entertainment, culture, and arts. It’s home to the region’s only art college and the local theater scene, and its main thoroughfares – Cleveland, Cooper, Madison, Poplar, Union, and Young — play host to hundreds of locally-owned businesses to serve any need.
