Visiting Akron this weekend and saw the historic St Thomas Hospital where AA was founded (in its current form).
Drove from one side of the city to the other: hospitals, bank HQs, minor league baseball, cuyahoga valley scenic railroad, university of Akron. The whole place seems more or less…occupied. Coming from Cleveland, which often looks abandoned & desolate, Akron appears like a city that has kept a maintainable, healthy size. Kudos! Very livable.
