ICT/316 .....yes, the city limits include areas on the east side of the Maumee River. That side of the river includes The Docks (nice restaurants or bars all lined-up facing the skyline across the river), The Marina District (on the planning board forever, with our without a new arena at that location), some grain elevators, famous Tony Packo's restaurant (of MASH fame), and rows and rows of small houses. The big oil refineries are on the border between suburban Oregon, OH, and the east side of Toledo. The Port of Toledo's General Cargo facilities, including one (1) of the largest port cranes in on the Great Lakes ("Big Lucas") is also located here. I don't have the exact figures but I would guess the east side population to be about 50,000 (of Toledo's 325,000).Originally posted by ICT/316
The central business district is indeed on the west side of the river. When you cross to the east on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge (Cherry Street) you are then on Main Street. Some of the buildings along Main are pretty interesting, although many have seen better days. There used to be a couple great bars along Main Street. This Bear dated an east side woman who lived just off of Main, in a basement apartment. Richard Nixon was president when that was going on.
Sorry, I am not aware of a map that shows city limits.
