Cleveland's hottest new neighborhood: Hingetown

CLEVELAND - Ohio City and Gordon Square are two of Cleveland's most popular neighborhoods and now a new neighborhood is moving in. On the hinge of Ohio city and Gordon square sits the appropriately named, Hingetown, that connects the two art districts.

"Hingetown is a collection of entrepreneurs who have everything from the best floral shop to the best cup of coffee," said Graham Veysey.

A young entrepreneur himself, Veysey isn't just building business in Ohio City, he's made Hingetown his home and is excited about what the new year has in story.

"What's really exciting about 2014 and Hingetown is you have all these businesses opening up, predominantly by people in their twenties and early thirties who see Cleveland as a destination to be able to do this sort of thing," said Veysey.

Some of the businesses already seeing the possible in Hingetown include the Urban Orchid and Rising star coffee. But more businesses are coming including the Beet Juice Bar, Cleveland tea revival and the Jukebox bar. While businesses are growing, culture remains one of the top reasons to visit Hingetown.

The historic transformer station has been transformed into a contemporary art gallery. It's collections and summer concerts draw thousands to the area.

The neighborhood isn't just attracting locals, Marika Shiori-Clark, a California architect has invested in the area.

"In the last year, I've been here a year and a half, so it's really amazing just how quickly you can turn a neighborhood around from caring about it and bringing in people that are excited to be part of the neighborhood, " said Shirori-Clark.
