With its proud history, strong neighborhood ties and proximity to the beauty of the Cleveland Metroparks, North Broadway is a community unique in character and amenities.

Often referred to as "Slavic Village" because of the many Polish and Czech immigrants who settled here in the late 1800s, the North Broadway neighborhood is a mix of stately churches and ethnic halls, tightly-knit streets of charming worker's cottages and new housing developments, all just steps away from the natural beauty and recreational amenities of the Cleveland Metroparks.

North Broadway is accessible from Interstate 77 at the Harvard, Fleet, Pershing or Broadway exits. It is a mere seven-minute drive from Downtown Cleveland. Public transportation can be accessed by the number 19 bus line.


The construction of the Ohio & Erie Canal in the 1820s and '30s brought heavy industry to the North Broadway neighborhood, and many Irish, Scottish, English and Welsh immigrants settled in the area to work at the steel mills and other factories along the Cuyahoga.

Decades later, in the 1870s and 1880s, large numbers of Polish and Czech immigrants moved to North Broadway, establishing churches and national halls which served as neighborhood focal points. In the area known as "Warszawa," Polish immigrants worshipped at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church and helped create a bustling commercial district near E. 55th and Broadway, which was so successful by the 1920s, it was known as a "second downtown."

Preserved areas of green space surround North Broadway, gracing the area with unique natural beauty. Mill Creek Falls, part of the Garfield Park Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks on the eastern edge of the neighborhood, is the largest waterfall in Cuyahoga County. The Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation borders North Broadway on the West, following a portion of the historic Ohio & Erie Canal. Just north of that is Washington Park, home of a recently built nine-hole public golf course. Biking and hiking trails wind through the neighborhood's many parks and green spaces.
