In general, the western side of Cleveland became a working class, whereas the eastern side became the place for most of the wealthy and educated people to live. Downtown Cleveland became the railroad hub and financial district. The working class neighborhoods like Ohio City and Tremont are economically diverse. Getting to other neighborhood from the one generally involves a bridge, a railroad trestle, or a bridge.
