  2. Fox 19 take on the situation: At least Kody went inside to talk to folks. https://www.fox19.com/2020/01/12/historic-cheviot-restaurant-close-after-years-business/
  3. Some folks in this Westside Capital are not happy with the way WKRC is portraying the city. Several small businesses have closed due to retirements and the death of an owner.

  4. Yea I deleted the app awhile ago and quit sharing the links on my pages. They will be gone soon enough. Why settle for junk journalism when their is so much to choose from these days?
  5. From: BuildingCincinnati https://www.facebook.com/buildingcincinnati/ * Authorized a Community Reinvestment Area LEED/Living Building Challenge tax exemption agreement with E.M.A. Freeman L.L.C. for the $800,000 rehabilitation of an historic vacant property at 2022-2024 Freeman Avenue in the West End into 13 residential apartment units and approximately 1,350 square feet of commercial space. Rents will average $1,250 per month. The 12-year tax exemption will reduce the developments' property tax liability by approximately $11,668 per year over the life of the agreement, and the City expects a return on investment of $4.09 per $1 in property taxes foregone. This will be the first Cincinnati-area project for the developer, which is based in Staten Island, New York. https://www.google.com/maps/place/2022+Freeman+Ave,+Cincinnati,+OH+45214/@39.119423,-84.5311105,3a,75y,130.31h,106.46t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s3JvwkK1HFQ1CJ1lfJnATjw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8841b405657e3927:0x630abb421a9d578f!8m2!3d39.1192762!4d-84.5308916?hl=en
  6. This is correct. If this is an issue and they want to dry the land out they will bring in the lime trucks.
  7. I've been instructed by brick masons with knowledge of the bricks from the 19th century that the worse thing to do is paint these for the exact same reasons. It kills me to see every building remodel in OTR and West End topped off with a fresh coat of paint. The building I own has been painted several times over during the 20th century and I have some areas where spalling is a big problem.
  8. Look for the section of Freeman between Bank St and York to start a refreshed mini commercial district soon. Their are many corner buildings in this area even off of Colerain that used to house businesses on the ground floor. Only a matter of time now before they start filling in these vacant storefronts. https://www.google.com/maps/place/1101+York+St,+Cincinnati,+OH+45214/@39.1173768,-84.5313505,3a,75y,135.06h,100.98t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sWzmEyimE02L-1Pf01fwxUg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8841b41b280b7e0b:0x7bde8b813ca24b7c!8m2!3d39.117363!4d-84.5332771 https://www.google.com/maps/place/1101+York+St,+Cincinnati,+OH+45214/@39.1175189,-84.5313346,3a,75y,300.31h,99.04t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snlA9gO6Qx0NSheWEL-uP5w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8841b41b280b7e0b:0x7bde8b813ca24b7c!8m2!3d39.117363!4d-84.5332771 https://www.google.com/maps/place/1101+York+St,+Cincinnati,+OH+45214/@39.1184165,-84.5312344,3a,84.2y,187.86h,99.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sh*tW6lrdfTX7eiHSf6z9MQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8841b41b280b7e0b:0x7bde8b813ca24b7c!8m2!3d39.117363!4d-84.5332771 https://www.google.com/maps/place/1101+York+St,+Cincinnati,+OH+45214/@39.1186082,-84.5328655,3a,45.2y,139.86h,99.45t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sZfVraurYfUrJbi_-WBUB-w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8841b41b280b7e0b:0x7bde8b813ca24b7c!8m2!3d39.117363!4d-84.5332771
  9. Do you mean this one on Freeman? I believe the preservation society has this one. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1181493,-84.5312625,3a,75y,130.22h,109.63t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sO7SaaKVFjO3UA5N-DOBtag!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en
  10. I almost hit one on the northbound exit ramp to westbound Western Hills Viaduct a few weeks ago. Their are quite a few that wander the slopes of Fairview Park, Clifton Ave, east towards Jackson Hill Park https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1246396,-84.5348368,79a,35y,90h,39.48t/data=!3m1!1e3
  11. One common complaint I have been hearing from folks who attended this year as well as the original in 2017 is that things seemed a lot more spread out this year. Appears like they spread the entire event out way more than they needed to at this point in the game. The best improvements that I noticed vs the 2017 event is shutting down the streets to vehicular traffic. The streetcars appeared to flow a lot better with the police escorts as well even though the system was at max capacity all night every night. Their appeared to be more vendors selling stuff but still not enough in my opinion. All in all, I witnessed all different types of folks generally having a very good time. It is a sight to see that many people walking the streets. Octoberfest and Taste Of Cincy don't even compare IMO. I'm sure with each event and year that passes, they with learn new ways to make it better and flow easier in the future.
  12. Green Township hotel is getting closer to being a done deal https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2019/09/30/green-township-hampton-inn-hotel/3787468002/
  13. I have always loved the parking/tailgating lots at Keenland. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Keeneland+Association+Inc/@38.0462726,-84.5980705,464a,35y,270h,39.26t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x3b91c3c4cd0fdb10!8m2!3d38.0461301!4d-84.6080081 Streetview https://www.google.com/maps/@38.0467849,-84.6041965,3a,60y,102.56h,92.14t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s-W8l7VNhljEhdW_cJnHNJA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
