Warehouse District Review
Cleveland's first neighborhood and downtown's oldest commercial district is a National Historic Landmark. Originally a residential area, the district became the hub of Cleveland commercial life in the post-Civil War years. Between downtown's Public Square and the east bank of the Flats, the Warehouse District encompasses 43 acres and contains more than 70 historic buildings. Some of the finest examples of Victorian commercial architecture (circa 1850-1920) in the United States, the structures were built to house wholesale groceries, dry goods merchants, hardware distributors, garment manufacturers, and chandleries. The areas is within walking distance of the Gateway District (the area around Jacobs Field and Quicken Loans Arena), Tower City (a shopping complex), and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but it's by no means just a path to somewhere else. One of Cleveland's premier destinations, it hosts trendy restaurants; dance, jazz, and blues clubs; coffee shops; specialty shops; and galleries.
