The Washington Boulevard "Dinkey", a streetcar that ran through Grant Deming's Forest Hill Allotment in the early 1900's, received an Associated Press mention in 1922.
All residents of Grant Deming's Forest Hill District are invited to join the Grant Deming neighborhood social network at GrantDeming.Nextdoor.com. This information kiosk is increasingly useful to the neighbors, allowing us to share recommendations, lost and found, classified ads, discussions on neighborhood issues of importance, and event planning, among other things. It's a great way to "talk over the back fence" in an era when the internet has allowed us to communicate in real time, and with the entire neighborhood! We are 560 members and growing. Check it out.
Don't live here but live in Cleveland Heights? Don't despair. Chances are you live in a Nextdoor neighborhood. Go to Nextdoor.com, type in your address, and begin the process to join the neighborhood group in your neck of the woods.
