This site is actually pretty impressive.
http://www.tos.ohio.gov/Transparency_Teacher.aspx
Anyways, nice top salary, but you get more in NYC (not double but more...) dunno wat pension and benefits are like.

Overall nice, but still like Brooklyn. When it clicks and doesn't go wrong, its nice to be w so many other yidden. Feels good.

(And ch"v lehepech...)

You may be able to walk, but when driving isn't such a pain it's a whole lot easier not having to shlep ;)
And there's something to be said for having your owned fenced in back yard.

Lol, no shortage, there's 80-100K here.
In fact the city of Beachwood has the highest percentage of Jews in the country.

Cost of living for a frum Jew is probably under half that of LA or NYC.

Picked my link bec its more recent w numbers in front of you an gov resource.(more trustworthy. Taking a course on research plz forgive my stickling here...)
Not a schlep generally, when i do need to get alot of things not difficult to park there. (Groceries have parking lots as well.) More difficult to get there bec of traffic, (that makes the summers so nice) but i've noticed that OOT as well. (Atl)
And the point was I could walk if i want to. All spring and fall its a mechayeh to walk to yeshiva. (And those cooler summer and nice winter days are awesome)

Ps typing w an ipad so @AJK plz excuse typos :P  :)

How much is rent in Beachwood?
A lot (in comparison to buying) since Beachwood has a great public school system, so parents will pay extra to rent there... The advantage of Beachwood is when you own the taxes are relatively low. Renting in UH (same shuls as Beachwood, just across Green Rd.) is more reasonable AFAIK $1200/month for a house...

YTWV (your tuition will vary)
If you (in general) have kindergartener and/or younger and semi low income, you may be in luck... http://www.localjewishnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/FAQ-Income-Based-EdChoice-voucher.pdf

Can always get mlbtv and go to games when NY teams come to Cleveland. Most NYers (or anyone else) don't change their teams when they move, so you can always root against/neutral to the Cleveland teams...

Just FYI, NY has a similar site (link), although I don't find it to be particularly accurate.

For Dan:

http://newyorksmash.com/ranking-of-the-salaries-needed-to-buy-a-home-in-25-cities/
Can confirm this to be true... Now, usually houses directly in the frum community are more expensive. There are still many houses that go for under 100k...
