Steps in a condo in the former schoolhouse lead to the third-floor guest room and outdoor deck, while the sitting area, above, outside the master bedroom affords views of the light-infused first floor, left.

DEVELOPER Andrew Brickman is sitting on top of the world. To be precise, he’s sitting in an airy penthouse in the former red brick schoolhouse on Little Italy’s Murray Hill. Brickman bought his place four years ago, impressed with the historic, renovated building that had been converted to 45 condos. He saw the potential, not to mention the panoramic city view, of the yet-undeveloped rooftop space that formerly housed the school’s gym equipment. Brickman’s contractor gutted the area to the studs and, using eco-friendly, natural materials; recessed lighting; and oversized windows, built an inviting, light-filled home that spills out onto a 6,000-square-foot roof terrace. During the warm months, the artfully landscaped terrace is used to host Brickman’s many informal gatherings and candle-lit dinner parties, where his spectacular views are a crowd-pleaser. On a clear day, Brickman can see Lake Erie, the downtown Cleveland skyline, Garfield Monument in Lake View Cemetery, and a series of cop¢

per-domed church steeples. Rows of ornamental grasses illuminated at night “provide an ethereal look that is very pleasing even during the cold winter evenings,” he says. When Brickman, who had lived and worked in California, was looking for an ideal Cleveland home “in a walking, cosmopolitan neighborhood,” he explored Bratenahl, Tremont and Ohio City. Little Italy’s historic ethnicity and proximately to University Circle, cultural institutions, downtown, art galleries and great restaurants fit the bill. An added bonus is his proximity to 27 Coltman, new townhomes he is currently developing just down the street. And with the midtown corridor development, the Cleveland Art Museum expansion, and the upcoming MOCA building on Euclid and Mayfield, this location is only getting better,” he says. Brickman’s use of minimalist furniture serves as a complementary background for the gifts and artifacts he has gathered on his travels around the world. These include a large bow given to him on a hunting trip by a bushman in Tanzania, a centuries-old Buddha from a lama from Bhutan, gifts from an orphanage he supports in India, and a ceremonial gee from Japan. Hanging above his low-slung suede great room sectional sofa is a large, dramatic, Fellini-inspired painting of an exotic woman that once hung at the Mercury Nightclub in 12

Cleveland. Although everything about the condo is unique, the private one-flight stairway leading to Brickman’s condo is truly oneof-a-kind. A Cleveland Institute of Art graduate student, with help from some Cleveland School of the Arts students, created a Chinese-style mural landscape. The fantastical imagery of green earth begins at the bottom of the stairwell and rises through different eco systems. Near the top, the scene depicts majestic mountaintops, and finally at Brickman’s front door, the sky. About three years ago, a Cleveland professional couple also found the former Murray Hill schoolhouse bell tolled for ¢

glass ornaments that hang from the second-floor sitting room ceiling. In the den, an original schoolhouse chalkboard is a reminder of the many children who learned their ABCs in that very space. The couple enjoys the outside of the condo as much as the inside. Their 1,500-square-foot well-appointed, landscaped deck holds up to 70 people. “Our life has changed because of our deck,” the owner says. During the warm months they organize their work schedule so they can get home early and relax on the deck every evening. “We knew this place would be good for us but never knew it would be this good,” adds the owner. “And with Little Italy as our playground, when we step out through the schoolhouse door, each day feels like recess.” At age 25, Jonathan Shelly, a Case Western Reserve graduate, is only a few blocks away from his alma mater but light-years away from student housing. He recently moved into one of the recently constructed townhomes in the new 27 Coltman development in Little Italy. The convenience of the neighborhood, the decorating service provided by 27 Coltman, plus the tax breaks and incentives made the opportunity to live in a prime urban location too good to pass up, says the Pittsburgh native. His spacious townhouse boasts a modern, efficient kitchen; a flat-paneled gas fireplace on the wall; hardwood floors; water-saving bathroom fixtures; great views and a rooftop terrace. “I’m a city kind of guy, and urban sprawl has no appeal to me,” Shelly says. He is delighted he can drive to his downtown computer company office in under 15 minutes and walk to University Circle. And with some of Cleveland’s best restaurants and hangouts a block from his front door, Shelly sums it up succinctly: “I’m one happy guy.”L

This Pepper Pike home is surrounded by lilies, shrubs and natural growth instead of lawn, making it a more eco-friendly landscape.

Cutting down on grass saves water, chemicals, power and emissions required to maintain a “perfect estate lawn.”

beautiful, sustainable gardens at home by ellen schur brown

MANNY Naft still remembers the day he vowed he would never mow the grass again. That was 25 years ago, when he and his wife Judy sold their house in South Euclid. For their new home in Pepper Pike, they told the builder to leave as much of the grounds natural as possible. And no lawn. Naft had no idea at the time that he was at the vanguard of the eco-gardening movement. There’s a 20-foot clearing of lava rocks and small stones around the house; otherwise their secluded abode is surrounded by woods, fruit trees, and the remains of an old stone wall. What he intended as low maintenance has grown into Naft’s nature project, hobby, and primary source for exercise. He has landscaped several outdoor “rooms” around the house with containers of colorful blooms. Naft planted hundreds of daffodils and other bulbs around the woods to look natural. The National Wildlife Federation certified the grounds as a natural habitat. “We were ahead of our time,” says Naft.

lawn-free and loving it If you want your homescaping to be more sustainable and eco-friendly, first – like Naft – rethink your lawn. Green gardeners agree, our culture of “perfect estate lawns” damages the environment. The EPA estimates lawn mowers are responsible for 5% of air pollution; grass requires intensive watering, and zeroweed-tolerance leads to overuse of wide-spectrum pesticides. Andy Pratt, grounds manager at the Cleveland Botanical Garden, is passionate about lawns that are luscious and low impact. For the Botanical Garden’s 43,000-sq.-ft. grounds, he seeks the most fuel-efficient mowers he can find. Honda makes a low-emission mower, or look for rechargeable, electric, propane or compressed natural gas mowers. If you want to burn calories instead of gas, old-fashioned hand mowers work, too. 24

| CLEVELAND JEWISH NEWS | JS T YL E | MARCH 2010

Using hardy plants and no chemicals at all, gardener Manny Naft has landscaped several outdoor “rooms” around his house. At home, Pratt pushes a reel mower, edges by hand with a long-handled hand trimmer, and uses absolutely no chemicals. “I didn’t think it was possible, but I started using organic fertilizer for my garden and lawn, and the grass grows better,” he says. Growing the grass longer – 3 to 3-1/2 inches – results in deeper, denser roots that need less water and allow fewer weeds. Some turfs – his is tall fescue – are hardier and need less water to maintain than traditional Kentucky bluegrass or bent grass. “My neighbors think I’m crazy, but there’s no gas and no maintenance. It’s quiet, so I can mow at 9 p.m. I can meditate, and I don’t have to suck on exhaust fumes,” reasons Pratt. ¢

a little professional help If your thumb is more black-and-blue than green, get help from a professional landscape designer. The Pattie Group gets requests every year to make yards more sustainable and reduce the carbon footprint of the landscaping, particularly through irrigation systems that reduce water usage. Saving water is good for your garden as well as the environment, says director of landscape development Jonas Pattie. “The biggest killer of plants here in Ohio is overwatering,� he says. Pattie has installed bioswales to remove silt and pollution from runoff water for his clients. New smart irrigation systems use moisture sensors to water only when the garden needs it and not on a regular schedule. That way, your sprinklers won’t turn on if it’s raining out. Landscape architects and designers always look for ways to use native plants and preserve water. “The right plant, the right place,� says Pattie. “If you choose the wrong plant, you have to do things to keep it alive, like extra watering, fertilizer or pesticides. You can avoid a lot of headaches by planning your site based on the soil and the sun.� Garden beds and hardscapes (beds of stones, rocks, bricks) are perfect for recycling or repurposing. “Old plant material gets mulched or composted; even brick and stone can be reused or recycled into gravel,� observes Pattie. “Everybody is learning to be more responsible.� L

quick tips for being eco-friendly at home leave the lawn: let the grass grow longer, reduce chemicals and pesticides, and look for low-emissions mowers. compost: instead of throwing out kitchen scraps and grass trimmings, turn them into loamy soil in a compost bin. Build one out of scrap wood, buy a backyard tumbler for less than $150, or have a garden center design one that fits into your garden for around $1,000. It takes about a year for plant materials to decompose into a great fertilizer. reject pesticides or chemical fertilizers: find organic or biological products to combat specific pests (many backyard chemicals treat a broad spectrum of pests). Amend soil with bone meal. reduce water usage: let the grass get a little brown, and don’t overwater beds. right plant, right place: native plants need less fertilizer, less water and less TLC to grow. Look for plants wildlife – or you – can eat. use recycled materials: bricks or river rocks from another site can be used for hardscaping.

This multi-use guest room was once a teen boy’s sanctuary, painted orange and decorated with sports memorabilia. “People want to renovate the room so that if they do sell the house, it will be ready and updated” to appeal to any buyer, she explains. Benjamin notes that many room transformations she’s worked on are a simple refurbishing of what people already have in their home. Rearranging furniture or artwork in a child’s old space can give the area a new look. If you prefer to do a total redesign of the former teen palace, a popular option for empty nesters is a hobby center where parents can devote the space to an activity they enjoy. Maybe trans-

form the space into a sewing room, art studio, workshop or library. “When kids are growing up, parents don’t normally have time to do a hobby they love,” says Rosenthal. “Once the kids are gone, parents can allocate a space for something they want to spend time on. “Rooms can be redesigned as a place where people store gift wrapping by creating storage elements or as a multipurpose area where crafts could be done with a big space to hold rolls of paper,” she continues. “A lot of people also want a home office and create extensive built-in storage units and computer stations.” Turning your child’s old room into a living area for their children is also a popular route to take when redecorating, says Orlansky. “Grandparents can construct walls made for toy storage and for clothing for when they have grandchildren visiting,” she says. “A trundle bed is a good option for the space because it will not look like a bedroom on a daily basis.” All three designers agree that changing a teen’s room is a slow process that should be taken gradually with sensitivity. Once kids have permanently moved out of Mom and Dad’s house, the room can become more universal for everyone to enjoy.L

the dirt on

spring cleaning by jacqueline w. goler

SPRING is the perfect time to get your house in order. Jstyle asked “Chief Organizing Officer” Sandi Einstein from e=mc2 organizing consultants for some tips to cut the clutter, wipe away the grime, and still have time for planting your roses. Einstein recommends “looking at one room at a time because it’s less intimidating.” Also, “make an appointment with yourself” to start spring cleaning, otherwise you’ll get distracted. Our spring cleaning to-do list: Kitchens: Take everything out of the cabinets and wipe them down. Wash exposed glassware. Refresh lining in shelves and drawers. (This might be the perfect time to get ready for Passover.) Bathrooms: Wash walls, woodwork, medicine cabinet, vanity and drawers. Toss medications and cosmetics you aren’t using.

Outdoors: Check the lawn for necessary seeding or aerating. Turn water back on. Bring furniture out of storage. Have gas grill serviced. Finished? Now, sit back and relax … and take the time to smell the roses.L

easy-to-wear styles dominate this season’s trends by jennifer daddario

THIS spring, be prepared to lighten up your wardrobe with easy-to-wear, fun looks and to expand your vocabulary with a new word: jeggings. “Jeggings” refers to a pant made out of stretch denim designed to hug the body like a legging, explains Sherri Knuth Bryan, owner of Knuth’s in Pepper Pike. A skinny jean fits close to the body, but a jegging clings like a pair of tights. Jeggings are also usually pulled on because flies and pockets are fake. Whether it’s jeggings, a skinny jean, or even a simple straight leg, the “skinny bottom continues really strong,” Knuth Bryan says. The musthave items for spring are all easy-to-wear, says Isabel Pritchett, owner of Sanity in Chagrin Falls. Jumpsuits and rompers are going to be hot items, she predicts. Both are one-piece outfits. Jumpsuits are usually long pants, while rompers are the length of shorts with gathered, often puffy, legs. “A romper is more casual, more for playing around,” Pritchett adds. “It’s just a loose, fun style.” A jumpsuit is dressier and is great for an evening out. Asymmetry in jumpsuits and dresses is also a look that will continue, says Ina Levinson, general manager of Saks Fifth Avenue 36

in Beachwood. “Shoulder-baring dresses will be a must-have for this season,” she says. “The feminine look complements a woman’s curves and is extremely flattering.” Nothing says easy like hands-free, which is why long-strap bags are in style, Levinson adds. Any bag featuring a long strap can be worn across the body, over the shoulder, or even as a clutch with the strap tucked inside. Military-inspired looks will also be featured this spring, Pritchett says. Look for jackets and dresses with patches in earth tones such as khakis, olive green and navy. For a lighter, softer look, pastels are strong, as are floral and plaid prints. “Lilacs, violets, pale yellows are the main colors,” Pritchett says. “Coral is going to be huge for spring.” Bold floral prints, laces and ruffles signal a return to a more feminine look, she adds. When it comes to shoes, break out the gladiator sandals, but don’t store your boots and booties too soon! “Boots look cute with bare legs and short skirts or shorts,” Knuth Bryan says. “Boots are becoming a yearlong ¢

Three of this spring’s top looks: one-piece jumpsuit by Mizmi ($79) from Sanity with layered necklaces and sandal booties.

THE 2010 INFINITI G37 SEDAN (base price: $33,250) is a sports car wrapped in a luxury car’s body. Don’t be fooled by its commuter-friendly four-door design, because this baby can move. Infiniti has outfitted its sports sedan with a healthy 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 engine mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission, along with available sport brakes, optional 18-inch wheels and numerous other amenities. The G37’s throaty engine works in satisfying concert with the automatic transmission. Alert and responsive, the sedan’s engine growls powerfully when accelerating. While this reviewer dug the roar, the surprisingly aggressive engine tone may not appeal to all drivers. The vehicle’s engine combines with the model’s second-generation FM (Front Mid-ship) platform – featuring a four-wheel independent suspension with lightweight aluminum components – to help provide rapid acceleration and nimble handling. Steering feels precise around bends and sharp corners. The four-door model, equipped with a double-wishbone suspension design in front and multi-link setup in the rear, handles nicely even on uneven surfaces with responsive braking at both casual and sudden stops. According to U.S. News rankings, the sedan has also earned very good scores in crash tests performed by the federal government. The sedan’s sloping roofline and stylized cats-eye headlights are handsome, although not as racy as the coupe in the looks department. Inside, the well-bolstered front seats are comfortable and snug, and the roomy backseat can comfortably fit three passengers.The G37’s curved instrument panel is refreshingly easy to use compared with other luxury carmakers that needlessly complicate simple controls with special knobs and other gimmicky devices. A 7-inch dashboard screen works through controls mounted horizontally below the interface, while the optional navigation system is extremely user-friendly. The main gauge cluster tilts up and down with the steering wheel at the touch of a button. The new Infiniti G37 is a well-rounded choice for 2010, boasting the comfort of a four-door and the athleticism of a performance car. Car for review provided courtesy of Infiniti of Bedford.

on pins and needles acupuncture goes mainstream by amy newman smith

among the local physicians who have undergone training to suffering from persistent back pain that wasn’t responding to become a licensed acupuncturist. McElroy says she undertook a medications, she decided to try acupuncture. But she didn’t tell yearlong training course designed especially for doctors because she felt there were areas of her practice where there just wasn’t a her doctor. Even after she began to feel relief, Cleveland Heights resident “good fix” in the toolbox available to Western-style physicians. The treatment is “becoming more respected” in Rosen didn’t think a trained physician would the medical community, McElroy notes, although respect her opting for acupuncture, a traditional sometimes there there are certainly still plenty of doctors who think Eastern healing practice that uses small needles isn’t “a good fix” its “all baloney.” Skeptics remain in large part inserted at precise points on the body. Times have because, in many cases, acupuncture isn’t yet supchanged, and patients may now find their doctors in western recommending acupuncture for conditions from medicine’s toolbox. ported by the kind of hard research data available for drugs or other treatments. chronic pain and the side effects of cancer treatIt’s not necessary to see a doctor to get relief ment to infertility and osteoarthritis. For some conditions, acupuncture is even covered by notoriously conservative from acupuncture. The Ohio Medical Board licenses specially trained acupuncturists such as Joie Hill, who has her own private insurance companies. practice called NorthStar Acupuncture and who sees patients at University Hospital’s Center for Women’s Health. Hill sees many doctors with needles A doctor with a hypodermic needle is a common sight, but patients for issues ranging from pain management and chronic doctors with the special needles used in acupuncture are also digestive problems to support for the side effects of pregnancy. becoming more common.

pinned down. In the case of pain, the Cleveland Clinic says that the stimulation of muscles may signal the brain and spinal cord to release the body’s natural painkillers (endorphins) and other chemicals to help block the message of pain being sent from the body to the brain. Another theory popular with experts is acupuncture helps route energy along the fascia – the sheath around your muscles – in order to restore balance to a body system that has gone out of whack.

side benefits Shoshana Lichtner of Cleveland Heights tried acupuncture, when, nearing the end of her pregnancy, she was told by her chiropractor it could help bring on labor. Although Lichtner knew there was no guarantee it would work, she was willing to try it because it was a natural approach. Hill also extols the natural aspect of acupuncture, noting that her patients sometimes find they have “side benefits” but not side effects. For example, when treating a man with an ear condition known as tinnitus, Hill found her patient had such a decrease in his chronic insomnia, digestive problems and anxiety that he was able to go off medications for those unrelated conditions. Hill calls the treatments both “virtually painless” and “virtually risk-free” with no chance of interactions with existing med-

icines. However, patients should seek treatment only with licensed professionals who use sterile procedures, she warns. Needles should be packaged and disposed of after use.

feeling the pinch If acupuncture is so great, why isn’t everyone rushing out to get it? While Hill says all but the most sensitive people will find little to no pain with the procedure, the truth is that not everyone is gung-ho about being stuck repeatedly with needles, even if someone promises, “This won’t hurt a bit.” Add to that the fact that most patients require a series of up to 10 acupuncture treatments, almost always paid for out of pocket, and resistance to trying it out can grow quickly. Despite the barriers, the use of acupuncture is likely to grow in coming years as more doctors and patients either see good results themselves or know someone who has. Rosen says her own apprehension was overcome in large part because she knew someone who had had great results from the procedure. “We are becoming more of a global society,” the Clinic’s McElroy notes. “We are realizing there is more than one way to do something.” At the end of the day, relief is relief, whether it comes in a pill or at the tip of a shiny needle.L
