Top definition
A city in Northeast Ohio, home of the Indians, the Cavs, the Browns, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, University Circle, and many other interesting places, teams, and people.
The city is also home to Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University, as well as the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM) and the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra.

Cleveland itself is a medium city as cities go, definitely not as huge as, say, New York.
Cleveland proper is the actual city. But Cleveland is surrounded by many inner and outter-ring suburbs, which together comprise the Greater Cleveland Area.
Though poverty, race relations, and corruption are all big problems for the city, it does have a lot of average, normal people, just like anywhere else, and therein lies it's salvation.
It also has a pretty good arts scene and really weird weather.

I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

The Mistake on the Lake; the only city to have a river that catches fire; a good view in your rear view mirror; however, they have had a good Symphony over the years, and Jim Brown was a famous Brown; all-in-all, not a place you'd want to go to now if you didn't have to.
Cleveland, OH sucks.
Cleveland, OH is a lousy, old, run-down little town.
The river burned and the people laughed, then they went bankrupt.
