What is the natural landscape & climate of Ohio?
I mean it's a big state so it can change alot depending on the region. Ohio summers can be hot and humid and the winters can be long, and if your in the snowbelt east of Cleveland, very white.

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!
Columbus was never a huge industrial city the way Cleveland, Cincy, and Youngstown were. The big employers in Columbus has always been government, education, insurance, banking, and so on.

I take it that the above homes are in a blue-collar area? It is nice to see grass verges.

No, not anymore. They were built for Blue Collar workers when the area was more of an minority (immigrants from Italy, German, Greece, and so on) neighborhood and the residents worked in near by factories. But today the homes have been restored and renovated and are now occupied by most white collar people. Alot of gay folks live in this area as well. Most of the neighborhoods north of downtown, areas like Victorian and Italian Village are middle to upper class neighborhoods. They've all pretty much been gentrified.

Chadoh, thank you very much for showcasing your fine city! Columbus really impressed me, it seems to have a nice mix of old and new. As someone with strong German heritage (My grandfather came right over from Leipzig, Germany), I absolutely love the German Village pictures! It looks to be a lovely historical and residential area- great to see Columbus preserving its German heritage!

That building- The LeVeque Tower..wow! What a gem! I'm also curious about that archway in the arena district, I think. Was it part of some larger structure? When was it built? I love that too, and the murals are amazing.

I never knew Ohio had an Erie Canal of its own-very interesting!

How do you like living in Ohio? I've only passed through Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati- always wanted to explore them. What are your thoughts on the other two big Ohioan cities?

Most, if not all the pictures linked through Photobucket I can't see though, unfortunately- not sure if there is anything on my end I could to do see them- seems like the website has a bandwidth limit on how many images can be linked externally.

Sorry for the long post-thanks for the photos- keep them coming!

Thanks bud, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed my photos! My family came from Ulm. I think they arrived around 1759 if I'm not mistaken. Also had family from Breslau. I love Ohio. People often think about it as just a boring "square state", but I always find something to do and see. I live in Downtown Columbus and love it. By Midwestern standards, Columbus is very clean and safe. The economy is also pretty good here. I'm not much of a fan of Cleveland but I do like Cincy. I go to Mass (auf Deutsch) at Old St. Mary's in Over the Rhine about once every two or three months. I love the architecture in Cincy.
