Cincinnati has a real range and variety of architecture. The Germania building is very classical and interesting??

Yeah, I'd LOVE to have a condo/apartment in that building!

The Over-the-Rhine neighborhod is an American treasure. Though, I have never seen it and really hope to one day. Doesn't it have a beautiful outdoor market?

Yeah, Findley Market is on Race Street. I went there once. It was very nice!

Chadoh, I know this is the wrong thread to ask, but have you ever done a thread on Lakewood, OH. I am curious about that town.

Funny you ask, I actually lived in Lakewood when I was in College at Cleveland State. But unfortunately, I didn't get the photography bug till after I moved back home to Columbus. But next time I'm up that way, I'll get some photos. Lakewood is a very nice inner ring suburb. I myself lived on Andrews Avenue between Cliffton and Detroit!

You just don't see buildings in Britain, with those exterior metal staircases; they seem very prevalent in The States. Interesting!

Over the Rhine. December 11, 2011. Part One















Like most cities in this state, OTR has seen a great deal of decline. However, that is slowly changing. Many of the empty building you will see are going to be renovated by the 3CDC.

Bremen is now Republic. The name was changed during WWI, along with several other streets. For example, German Street became English and so on. German books were also burned and it was illegal to hold a public meeting in anything other than English!

My experience of Liverpool has shown me how seeing former grandeur fallen into decay can be far more depressing than seeing, simple, low-income neighbourhoods & urban grit.

There is something very sad when grand buildings fall into dis-use - but at the same time there is always great potential for rebirth & regeneration.

I think it has something to do with the fact that many of these buildings have timber interiors ? I was surprised when I stayed with friend in Kentucky. His apartment house was beautiful but all the internal stairways were timber and the basement had boilers for heating with the timber floors and beams above right through five floors to the roof. This wouldn't be allowed in Australia. The exterior fire escapes give an alternate answer to prohibition. I also visited Cincinnati back in 2007 and thought it a very nice city. Many of these pics show buildings that will one day house beautiful quality restored homes. Hang on to them till then....New construction has none of the charm shown here.
