Image Caption: STS059-234-034 Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. April 1994
Featured in this near-vertical photograph is Cleveland, situated at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, which empties into Lake Erie. Extending along the lake, Cleveland, the largest city in Ohio, is a Great Lakes shipping and receiving point, a major U.S. iron and steel center, and the city in which John D. Rockefeller began his oil dynasty. Subsequent to the racial and financial problems of the 1960s and 1970s, the city made a dramatic turnaround--cleaning the polluted Cuyahoga River and modernizing the city's central area. Visible west of the city are the runways of Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport, west of which is the NASA Lewis Research Center.
