    Denver skyscrapers

    From what I understand, dozens of blocks were being leveled in the 1960s-1980s for urban renewal. That's why Larimer Square and a lot of LoDo is so important.

    Denver skyscrapers

    I deserve that. I am a freaking ghost. Who do we know who lives in Denver...or knows Denver? I mean, this is approaching the civic district of Denver...next thread will have a Puerto Rican Day spread from Denver's Civic Center Park. But just outside of it, all of the urban renewal towers built between 1968 and 1983 (right?). All I can say is that I always fly over Denver from the SE to the NW, usually around evening, and it looks amazing from the plane.

    Denver skyscrapers

    Can anyone identify Denver's skyscrapers very well? I visited in June and have a few photos I'm trying to tag and identify...most of these can be seen from the lower 16th Street Mall, meaning they're probably on 17th, 18th, or Broadway. Here are the pics. Thanks! Kevin

    UrbanOhio 10th Anniversary Meet & Drink!

    SO SORRY I wan't able to make it, everyone. As some of you may know, my Mom had brain surgery for a malignant tumor recently, and I wasn't able to get away for the day. There was just to much that needed attention around here. I hope everyone had a great time in Columbus -- despite the rain. And at least none of you were struck by lightning. Damn.

    FYI...My Mom is in the hospital right now...she should be back home by then, but if she's not it could affect my attendance.

    R.I.P.: Robert Pence

    I haven't been a contributor to UO for years, but I really felt like I should visit and pay my respects to Robert Pence. I met Robert on two occasions...once during a UO meet in Dayton so many years ago and another time who knows when or where. From my limited contact with him I knew that he was very friendly, knowledgeable, and a hell of a photographer. He had seen more than I'll likely see in my lifetime. I could tell he wasn't so well back then, eight or so years ago, by his voice. I just hoped he'd be around long enough to continue to contribute his great insights and photography, which he did. He is a UO icon. If ever this site develops a Hall of Fame, he should certainly be in it. R.I.P. Robert Pence....

    Congrats to buildingcincinnati!

    Thanks, people! BC will continue as always. The Business Courier has the rights to reproduce my stories. In return, I get a nude lady and a load of Book of the Month Club dung. Sorry about those Monty Python references. Anyway, I'm sorry I don't have time for UO anymore. It was the soil in which I grew. Now I've left and I don't have time for it. But I haven't forgotten about you guys -- I think about UO often and I'm glad to see how this thing has continued to grow. BTW, I used to be with Cincinnati.com. They were not the least bit helpful, they have no current real estate writer, and they could've made great use of me if they tried.
