Nice pics.

Cincinnati has a lot of good architecture. I like the way Over the Rhine is old and dense but looks classically American. It reminds me of parts of upstate New York, like Syracuse and Utica (when it was still intact).

One of the cleanest Midwestern cities I've ever seen, the downtown looks like it has lots of charm to offer. Was Cinci a large victim to urban revitalization during the 60's/70's? I see lots of vacant lots in the downtown.

Yeah, like most American cities, Urban Renewal, Freeways, and Suburban Sprawl have hit Cincy hard over the last 50 yrs. But things are getting better. I can remember when Vine was a mess. The same can be said about North High Street in Columbus and other Ohio cities.

For some reason, this building reminds me of one I once saw in Montreal (There is a Montreal Street here in Cincy. Before WWI, it was called Bismarck Street).

Nice!

I assume it's the best thread I've ever seen about Cincinnati... I had already heard about it (well, Cincinnati is an important city, lol), but I didn't know much about it... I thought it would be "an-american-city-like-many-others", but, for my surprise, Cincinnati has a great architecture, a lot of beautiful old buildings and so on...

Anyway... Thanks for sharing these (really nice) pics and keep posting them!

Yeah, that's what I love about my state. When people tend to think of Ohio, or the midwest in general, they seem to picture nothing but small, backwater towns and tiny villages. But once they start to really explore the state, they discover medium sized and large cities with amazing architecture and racial diversity. Ohio is blessed in this respect. We have three large cities and lots of smaller ones like Akron, Dayton, and Toledo. and in those cities are represented every religious and ethnic minority you can think of! Even though I have been disappointed in the past, I am still proud to be an Ohioan and I love my state!

wow! great photo update, keep on posting chad.
I've noticed that Ohio has the most number of big and medium sized
old established cities, i.e. Cleveland, Columbus, Cincy, Toledo, Akron, Dayton,
Youngstown,Canton and smaller ones like warren, lima, findlay,lorain-elyria, mansfield,
springfield, middletown, newark and many more.
anyways, thanks chad for your effort.
