It's a bit of a rivalry, and people may disagree, but I think I now know the answer to the oldest block party in Shaker Heights... it's Townley Road. However, Grenway Road is the longest consecutively running block party, 75 years and going strong. Both streets boast lovely, unique houses, friendly neighbors and have a good sense of humor about this "contested" title. But, I think there's room for each street to have their own place within Shaker lore! The block party season is just one of things that makes our community special. I'll be stopping by block parties all summer. Hope to see you there!
Government works best when we can see it.
