So many elegant buildings there. I am eager to see the Banks development when it is complete. I love the Roebling Bridge.

I'll be down in Cincy in about a week. I plan on getting many more photos of that area and Mt. Adams!

Many absolute gorgeous buildings here, but it is sad to see so many open plots in between them. Are there any plans to fill any of these plots with some developments?

Like most cities in this state, we have plans and plans, but most of the time it seems they never go anywhere. However, Downtown Cincy is making progress. They've complete rebuilt the Riverfront and they've also rebuilt Washington Park in Over the Rhine. There's also lots of renovations going on along Vine, Main, and Republic (Bremen before WWI) streets. Things are slowly improving!

Well there is nice to hear that there are some plans to something about it at least. Lets hope most of it comes to fruition sooner rather than later.

Cincinnati looks great.

Like all cities, it is in a constant state of flux: decay, regeneration, renovation, demolition and new builds.

Me too! Cincy and Pittsburgh are blessed with many of them!

This is very true. I feel this flux is what makes cities especially interesting.

I can see that. Although I'm not a huge fan of decaying neighborhoods. I often times find them more depressing than anything else. I often try to pictures these places in their better days, before freeways, suburban sprawl and big box stores. Cincy was an amazing place back in the 1940s and 1950s.

I often am often so caught up in the potential, I forget to notice the reality. That can actually be a bad thing. My weakness is always wanting to save a house or neighborhood, even at my peril. My partner is much more pragmatic and has prevented us from buying houses in bad neighborhoods because he realizes that 'potential' isn't always there anytime soon.

I know the feeling. There are some lovely homes south of Livingston Avenue in Columbus that I'd love to own. Sadly the neighborhood is on it's way down instead of up. But a boy can dream though can't he! Honestly though, if I had a partner/Boyfriend/Husband, I'd move to Cincy and buy one of those beautiful homes in OTR. Or maybe Covington. But until Prince Charming comes along, I'm happy in my studio apartment in Downtown Columbus.
