Looks like: Depends on where you are in this largest of Shaker's neighborhoods. Could be cozy,
contemporary, ranch traditional or stately, all in a large and lovely environment conducive to
walking, running, biking and strolling.
Feels like: The best of both worlds: close to Cleveland's business, arts, sports, and medical
centers, yet still in proximity to suburban amenities, including public and private schools both in Mercer and nearby.
Walk to: The new and improved Thornton Park -- by foot or ride a bike. Easy to reach, lots to
do, right in Mercer's backyard. Playgrounds at all three area schools and Thornton Park.
Close to: The Van Aken District. Nifty shops and slice of campus life at Fairmount Circle. Also, Bertram Woods Branch library, the shops at Almar, Green Line RTA.
