The second episode of CityProwl Cleveland features a stroll through the 3 downtown arcades: the Old Arcade, the Colonial Arcade and the Euclid Arcade. Cleveland stands alone among US cities for having not 1 but 3 of these building types, and the Old Arcade is admired around the world for its beauty, gigantic scale and cutting edge technology. Find out more about arcades in general, how Cleveland happened to build these jewels and their current status. The prowl lasts about 25 minutes. Meet in the Old Arcade, in front of the 1980 Coffee Shop, which is located under the stairs near the Superior Avenue entrance.
