German Village seems to be a peaceful residential neighborhood, and those apartments and homes made of brick look wonderfully preserved over time! Not only it maintains the uniformity of the neighborhood, but I can truly sense the community's unique charm... add to that the cobblestone streets that go through the lovely brick structures. Makes me want to spend a few minutes in that neighborhood, take pics, and feel inspired by how the community was built in the first place... love those snaps, Chad!

I love those red-bricked houses of different shapes and sizes.

That looks like a very pleasant neighbourhood.

I get the distinct impression that you have German ancestry and/or connections?

That would be correct. My family came from Ulm in 1759 and settled in PA.

when I think of Ulm, what comes to my mind is that quite a large and beautiful cathedral which I think is its landmark.
BTW, I love those red-bricked houses, they are massively built which can stand the test of time.

When I look at pictures of U.S cities, especially those in the interior, I always get the impression of temporary lodgings in a vast, natural landscape.

What is the natural landscape & climate of Ohio?

Italian Village looks really pleasant and warm, with the red bricks found on many homes bringing in a sense of fuzziness and a welcoming atmosphere. Add to that the charm of the outside patios facing the street and the bald trees that dominate the scenery late-winter, and those really show charm and beauty to an already magnificent city as Columbus. I am pleasantly surprised at how much diversity your state capital has, and while many of the streets have narrow sidewalks, the village's intrigue makes me want to walk around those streets myself to get a feel of how the community is linked to the bigger city.

St. Joseph's Catholic Church, on the other hand, is a magnificent structure made of yellow brick, and those stained glass images of Catholic symbols truly make a strong connection to the Italian Village. While the design may look more American than Italian, the overall feel of the church resonates very well with the rest of the community, in that it keeps with the theme of bricks and mortar being a dominant feature in the area, and it looks really compact that I am impressed at how intricate the exterior looks like... I will expect the same too for the interior if you've got a chance to see it. And by the way, that Wonder Bread sign reminds me of the bread-making factory that also exists here in the Bay Area... how much of Columbus was a manufacturing area prior to World War II, and how much industry is left in the city? And is there a food manufacturing facility in the city that still operates today?

Splendid snaps again, Chad!
