When the Cleveland-to-Hudson section of the Cleveland & Pittsburgh (later Pennsylvania) opened on February 22 [1851], John G. Stockley lost his fight to preserve the lakefront for parks and docks. "You're letting the railroad ruin the most beautiful thing we have," he protested. But the tracks remained, henceforth to complicate lakefront problems.
