North Coast Harbor

North Coast Harbor, a district in downtown Cleveland, is located on the shore of Lake Erie. This popular section of town houses the Great Lakes Science Center, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Continuous improvements were made along the city’s waterfront. Piers were constructed on each side of the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and breakwaters further enhanced the port. The gap, marked by lighthouses, permitted vessels easily access the Cuyahoga River. The West Pierhead Lighthouse, seen in the background of this view, originally marked the Genesee River at Rochester before being relocated to Cleveland.
