One of Cleveland's oldest neighborhoods, and perhaps its most ethnically diverse is Ohio City, a culturally rich community located just across the Cuyahoga River from downtown Cleveland. Originally home to Irish and German immigrants, Ohio City today is home to more than 15 ethnic groups representing over 10,000 people. Like most inner-city neighborhoods in the U.S., Ohio City fell into decline in the 1950s and 1960s as migration to the suburbs took its toll. However, in the 1970s, initial efforts at revitalizing the neighborhood began in earnest--efforts that have blossomed into a full-fledged renaissance marked by renovation of the neighborhood's historic structures; construction of new single-family houses, condominiums and townhomes; and proliferation of interesting shops, restaurants and nightspots.
