I read this column in the Friday Weekend print edition b/c it is behind a paywall. In every way, a stunning edition, and cheap at the $3 newsstand price.

I'm trying to persuade my wife to subscribe to the Times print edition and scrap our farcical local paper.

BTW, two of my teaching colleagues who saw me reading it have called the Times too "left". I said I found it to be too "right", but that in these times I felt I have a civic duty to read it.

I was getting it free and just couldn't stand being without it-for a while they allowed you a certain number of free articles but when that came to an end I threw in the towel and became a subscriber! So tell me more about that street in Cleveland-is that downtown-it looked great! Len

It is the downtown Public Square area with the 950' Key Tower on the left flanked by the 660' 200 Public Square. The 770' Terminal Tower sits about where the camera is. It used to be America's tallest bldg outside NYC.

Aerial videos here should give you a better view:
