Remind me - do you live in Cincinnati? If so, in which area of the city?

Nope, I live in Downtown Columbus. Cincy is only and hour and a half away so that's why I go there so often. Just a quick drive down I-71.

Those pics from OTR look truly magnificent, with the old brick structures reminiscent of a well-established downtown area complete with shops, restaurants, and a lot of vehicular activity. The thing, though, that seems to be missing with the OTR are pedestrians: I notice that not a lot of people walk through the district, admiring the community's wonderful buildings that date back decades, and while some of those structures have unique paint exteriors (I especially like the original brick colors, but I also like those that have accents of white and orange in the process to make them look 'modern'), so many of them have great architectural details, especially on the windowsills and the top floors that provide a sense of beauty and order to the community. Question, though: on the brown building on 12th & Main Streets, is that colorful painting facing 12th Street a work of art, or is it a random graffiti painting? It looks intriguing to me, especially that I find it as a historic district of Cincinnati.

As for Walnut Hills, indeed, I see a lot of rich details on many of those stately homes, especially the castle-like design of the second image (with the square "fortress" design), and I notice that those older apartments (aww, gotta like the purple-colored apartment!) blend in wonderfully with the more-modern single-attached homes that line up that residential street.

Superb work again, Chad! Keep those lovely images coming!

lovely photos and nice of you to update this thread with interesting buildings.
just a quick question: since you travel an hour and a half from Columbus, what are the interesting and exciting things to do (besides the obvious) you do or others can do?

It's a mural a local artist painted I believe.

It depends on what you like to do. There is a Classical Music Museum, The Museum Center, The Freedom Center, and I'm sure others I'm forgetting. If you like sports there is professional football and baseball. If you're into German-American History there is plenty of that. If you like nature, there are many amazing parks and trains in the Cincinnati area.
