Hope to see some of you at the NTS. Where is a good place to park?

They have underground parking near the convention center (or at least used to), but imagine they will have the Browns Stadium parking lots open.  It's been awhile since I was home and even longer since I ventured downtown.  There is a pedestrian bridge that gets you across the tracks from the stadium to the convention center.  Goes right over the NS waterfront line and Amtrak station.

Cheers,
Brian

Wish I could be there, as it's only nearly diagonally the state of Ohio away, but a long-planned family reunion some 700 miles to the east of Cleveland takes precedence.

Thanks for sharing those pictures Mike.  Those are my old stomping grounds as a teenager and young adult.  The Flats isn't what it used to be from the early 90's, but I still miss home... :(
