    I just received word that I landed a new job at Cleveland State. Now fiancee can never claim I never did anything for her, for I am making the ultimate sacrifice and moving there for her.

    I have about a month to find a place and move up there before I start the new job. Do any of you guys have any recommendations for finding an apartment near the Cleveland area (preferably SW or SE suburbs of the city). I'm looking for a quiet neighborhood outside of the city itself, but within a 30 minute average drive to the downtown area. My fiancee is suggesting the Broadview Heights/Brecksville area, but I want to keep looking before I make my final decision.

    I have a few friends that live in Cleveland Heights. They seem to like it. Most of them work right downtown and it is about 30 minutes for them. My brother lives on the far west side of the city near the airport. The best part is his backyard adjoins a golf course and the metro parks is right around the corner. He is about as close as you can get to not living in the city.

    My condolences.

    A little over a year ago, I was looking at Case Western for law school. I have to say, Cleveland State is a far more attractive place, at least for me. Reminds me of Wayne State back home.

    I visited there a lot to try to get myself to be able to tolerate Cleveland, but it didn't work. I just couldn't. That said, there was a place off of I77, Seven Hills/Independence, I think it was called. Nice area. 30mins at most from downtown.

    Grad- Talk to a realtor and let them know that you don't want to live in an area that is part of RITA (Regional Income Tax Agency.) This is an additional income tax that is charged to everyone that lives within Cleveland and the majority of the suburbs. Even though I live in one of the eastern-most burbs, I have to pay this and it sucks. Depending on your income level, it will easily cost you several hundred dollars easily. I think that Independence and Strongsville might be exempt from RITA.

    FWIW, just about any suburb in the area can get you to downtown in 30 minutes or less. Just make sure that you have reasonably quick access to a major highway (480, 90, etc.) I live in Richmond Heights (way to the East,) and drive past downtown to Westlake (on the West side) every day for work in 30-45 minutes.

    Again, stay away from RITA, she's an expensive bitch.

    Thanks for the notice. That is helpful advice to know.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Lucky you- I lived there for 3 years after OSU and loved it. I lived in Westlake and worked downtown. Brutus is right, if you're on a major highway (when I was there, traffic from the west was WAY easier than from the east or south) you can get downtown without too much trouble.

    Fairview Park is nice (very close to metropark golf), and someone else mentioned Cleveland Heights- it's pretty nice, too.
