East 55th (RTA Rapid Transit Station)
East 55th is a station on the RTA Red, Green and Blue Lines in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The station entrance is located on the west side of East 55th Street just north of the intersection with Bower Avenue and the eastern terminus of Interstate 490.
The station is fairly unique in that it serves both high-level boarding rapid transit or heavy rail trains and low-level boarding light rail trains. The high-level boarding platforms for the Red Line are located at the eastern end of the station at the end of the stairs leading down from the station entrance on East 55th Street. The low-level boarding platforms for the Green and Blue Lines extend from the western end of the high-level platforms.

“But parents can be understanding and accept the more difficult stages as necessary times of growth for the child. Parents can appreciate the fact that these phases are not easy for the child to live through either; rapid growth times are hard on a child. Perhaps its a small comfort to know that the harder-to-live-with stages do alternate with the calmer times,so parents can count on getting periodic breaks.”
—Saf Lerman (20th century)
“The East is marvellously interesting for tracing our steps back. But for going forward, it is nothing. All it can hope for is to be fertilised by Europe, so that it can start on a new phase.”
