About this Forum

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." Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, this episode follows the story of two Cincinnati area public officials and their efforts to keep their towns stable and healthy despite difficult times to repair and improve infrastructure and lure businesses. The film will be introduced by Andrea Torrice and will be followed by a panel discussion.
