    Favorite Streets in Ohio

    #2 is awesome! It is still detached housing, but the lack of front setback and very minimal side setbacks almost makes the street look like an eclectic stretch of rowhouses in Pittsburgh or something. Very cool, but disappointing to see the nothingness that the street empties out to. I imagine a lot of Cleveland looked like this street at one point. I get the appeal of #1 with the old apartment buildings on one side of the street and the huge parkways and front yards. Would be cooler if the other side of the street was also developed with those multi family buildings. Is #3 a joke? It looks totally abandoned and riddled with trash...

    Favorite Streets in Ohio

    Wow, the entrance to Cedar Point Road is fantastic! Very unique and really beautiful! I'm also a big fan of landscaped parkways, so that Wayne St. example is also very cool. Excited to see what others decide to share!
  3. I thought it could be a fun idea to post your favorite street segments in Ohio. It can be a portion of a street that you find really beautiful, has a cool collection of businesses, has historical importance, scenic vistas from it- whatever. Please post streetview links! I'll start: 1) Neil Ave, Columbus. Between King and Buttles https://www.google.com/maps/@39.97978,-83.0116372,3a,75y,149.57h,82.21t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sK_JCsk8-S7RjOJe0EbZ56A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 2) Main St., OTR Cincinnati. Between 12th and Liberty https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1089239,-84.5116167,3a,60y,352.66h,93.8t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sVKh3lesx93woT07q9FAqJA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 3) Woodburn Ave., East Walnut Hills Cincinnati. Between Burdette and Madison https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1282348,-84.4777787,3a,75y,52.86h,96.25t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sAkxgwTiIRMM2IGWmFG3yZQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 4) Chestnut St., Mariemont. Between Plainville and Beech https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1468208,-84.3836734,3a,75y,102.56h,89.07t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sUBpLhTLixTJCtQjDxkoKbA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  4. ^ Given the Farmer family's ownership stake in the team, I could definitely see Cintas Field. Then again, they might not want to cause confusion with Xavier's Cintas Center.

    The Trump Presidency

    Yeah, but most developers in New York don't try to become President of the United States. That's kind of the whole point. A shady real estate tycoon, formerly in the gambling business, has no business becoming President. The fact that a large segment of Americans, including a large portion of the Senate and House, let this guy become President without seeing his tax returns and doing a deep dive into his potential conflicts of interest abroad, is still shocking to me.
  6. I’d assume this is something the building owner is installing rather than the tenant. Not sure what that portion of the ceiling looked like previously, but it would seem unlikely that a tenant would be able to leave a giant hole in the ceiling if/when they move out of the space.
  7. But there is an active lawsuit to try to get the districts redrawn prior to the 2021 redistricting.

  9. Also some cool old apartment buildings in Avondale will get some love, too. Between this and the big investment from The Community Builders, Avondale has seen a lot of its cool old apartment buildings renovated and retained as affordable housing. Great to hear. I'm also glad the Alms will see some upgrades. It could desperately use them.
  10. Newport on the Levee serves its purpose. The movie theater is nice and large, and there are a few decent places to grab food before or after a movie if you want. Many a Friday night in high school was spent at the Deweys and AMC in Newport. The aquarium is also pretty nice and large, and I think they've even expanded it in recent years. The retail component has been a failure, and yes, most of the restaurants are chains and the bars are not somewhere I'd choose to go, but they serve their purpose. I'm curious to see how the place changes with this sizable investment.
  11. Does puff sell vapes or weed supplies?
  12. That drives me crazy, too. I can never go through a whole loaf of bread before it turns moldy. In general, I would love to see more groceries sold in smaller quantities. As a single person who lives alone, it's very hard to use up all the groceries I get, so I've had to get smart about making things in advance and then freezing them to use later.

    Political Correctness

    There should probably be a thread for transgender issues. I, personally, don't really believe in the whole concept of being transgender. I do think those who identify as the other gender should be respected and able to pursue whatever they want to in terms of employment or school or whatever, just as all humans should be regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation, economic status, etc. However, I simply don't understand how transgender activists can simultaneously claim that gender is a social construct, and that people can be born into the 'wrong body'. If gender is a social construct, what does it even mean to identify as a male or female? Women aren't inherently drawn to the color pink, or playing with certain toys as kids, or dresses or long hair or whatever. All of that has been decided over the years as being female traits. We see these traits vacillate between male and female sometimes, too. In the old days, men used to commonly wear makeup and long haired wigs, and it wasn't seen as being feminine at all. So how does a transgendered person identify as female? Why are they not just males who are into things that society has deemed to be feminine? If the whole goal is to dismantle gender norms, which I am all for btw, I don't see how someone can then be transgender unless they are biologically ambigous (intersex, hermaphrodytic, etc.) I've never been able to understand this.
  14. Yeah, there's also a pretty sizable pocket in the northwest Cincy burbs- Springdale, Forest Park, parts of Fairfield, and Hamilton. But you pretty much have to look for Hispanics in Ohio.
