Baby Boomers flock to revitalized downtown Cleveland

Baby boomers are flocking to a revitalized downtown Cleveland, Ohio for its amenities, for its quality of life, and for a sense of community.

The city’s public and (especially) private leaders should be congratulated for successfully turning around a “dead” downtown that has long been the butt of jokes nationwide (“mistake on the lake”).

According to Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA), boomers have become the fastest-growing group of people flocking to downtown.

From 2000-2013, there was a 98 percent increase of the number of people ages 55-64, who now make up more than 1,000 of downtown’s 13,278 residents.
