Ohio's First Suburbs play a leading role in "The New Metropolis," a groundbreaking two-part documentary on the rise, fall and revitalization of America's first suburbs, produced by award-winning filmmaker Andrea Torrice.  Plan to join us for the Cleveland premier of Episode One, "A Crack in the Pavement, Rebuilding America's First Suburbs."
