Bratenahl: A Village Within Cleveland Where Poverty Doesn't Go

CLEVELAND (AP) - Almost hidden within the nation's most impoverished city is a neighborhood where homes cost millions and most people make more than $100,000 a year.

Bratenahl (BRAT'-ih-nahl), just three miles long and a half mile wide, is an enclave of the well off and a self-governing village of about 1,400.

Some of the most powerful people in Cleveland move to the village's gated mansions as urban blight and high crime rates prompt people to move out of the city center.

The village isn't part of Census Bureau data that's listed Cleveland as the most poverty-stricken large city in America for two of the past three years and village officials say they hope their protected area will never become a Cleveland neighborhood.
