Cleveland trying to be New York . . . again

Since Cleveland's downtown streets are somewhat desolate on weekends (as I can attest when working on weekends), the makers of Spiderman 3 have chosen to utilize Cleveland for some urban, second-unit shots.

So it is again interesting/funny to see people atwitter and rolling the red carpet out, with discounts and financial incentives, to another outside organization.

It is a shame that only in the backgrounds of a Spiderman movie will Euclid Avenue, the former Millionaire's Row of John D. Rockefeller, actually come to life.

On the upside, we did beat out Detroit.
