Cincinnati, Ohio, USA (March 2014) Phototour

Hey guys! I visited the gorgeous city of Cincinnati, Ohio for the first time ever in March 2014 and I had an awesome time! Cincinnati is the third largest city in Ohio (300,000 population), but is home to the largest metro in the state at over 2.2 million. I toured many areas of the Queen City.

This part of the tour mainly focuses on the downtown area.

Without further ado, let's begin!

My hotel I stayed at, the Residence Inn at the Phelps Building, built in 1926.






View of downtown Cincinnati from my room on the 11th floor...


Fourth Street


Lytle Park


Procter and Gamble's World Headquarters








Cincinnati Masonic Center


Taft Theatre




Great Western and Southern Insurance Company Building




Queen City Square


Skyline Chili downtown


A staple in SW Ohio, feels like a Hard Rock Cafe, but better!


Inside Skyline Chili




Cincinnati-style chili dish with chili cheese fries!


With all the Cincinnati Reds logos around, I think this is a popular spot for Reds fans to before a game!


Atrium Two Building


Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company Building






Historic Fourth Street in downtown Cincinnati




Historic Dixie Terminal building, completed in 1921, former streetcar, stock exchange, and office building.

Continuing on..

Buildings along historic Fourth Street


More buildings including the Classical Music Hall of Fame on the right




Looking up at the PNC Tower (I like calling it the Central Trust Tower, one of its original names).


It was built in 1913 and was at one time the 5th tallest building in the world and the 2nd tallest office building in the United States.


Central Trust Tower and the lesser impressive Provident Building on the right...


National Underground Railroad Freedom Center






Looking north at downtown Cincinnati...




Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals

Some more shots of downtown Cincinnati from Day 1 and more...

The historic John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge and the skyline of Covington, Kentucky


The bridge was designed by John A. Roebling, who designed the famous Brooklyn Bridge. It opened in 1866 and is a National Historic Landmark.

Many bridges crossing the Ohio River


Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds








The Banks




Great American Ball Park from the riverfront










US Bank Arena, home of the ECHL's Cincinnati Cyclones Hockey Team


On December 3, 1979, a tragedy occurred at this arena, when it was known as the Riverfront Coliseum. The Who were scheduled to play and the concert used festival seating and after they opened the doors, 11 fans were crushed to death. This resulted in the city of Cincinnati banning festival seating for 25 years until the ban was lifted in 2004.

Entrance to Great American Ball Park


More of Fourth Street downtown

Great stuff here -- thank you.

Downtown Cinci is a real gem, with most of the interesting and historic architecture concentrated in its western half.

Great stuff here --- many thanks.
Downtown Cinci is a great place architecturally. Most of the good stuff -- the older and more interesting buildings -- is in the western half of downtown.

Hey again! The second part of my March 2014 Cincinnati, Ohio trip features one of the finest intact urban neighborhoods in the United States, Over-the-Rhine, just north of downtown Cincinnati. The neighborhood was once a haven for German immigrants and was nicknamed "Over-the-Rhine" because of how German settlers crossed the Miami and Erie Canals to get to downtown much like crossing the Rhine River in Germany. The neighborhood went into a severe decline in around the infamous 2001 riots. But over the last few year, the neighborhood south of Liberty Street has experienced an incredible comeback and revitalization, with the openings of numerous restaurants, bars, businesses, and the addition of residential units. The neighbourhood is said to contain the highest amount of italianate of any place in the United States.

Without further ado, let's begin the tour of this fine urban neighbourhood…



Fine commercial blocks along Vine Street in Over-the-Rhine


















Over-the-Rhine Historical Marker






Another building to be renovation/preserved...


Just south of Liberty...


St. Francis School


St. Francis Seraph Roman Catholic Church




These blocks are awaiting renovation...












A newer residential building on Vine Street...






Streetcar tracks being installed on Race Street...




Washington Park, recently completed a massive revitalization and facelift...
