  1. The iconic L shaped buffet lives to serve fried chicken another day!!
  2. Detroit's Q-Line has credit card machines at stops but cash machines on the streetcar. Luckily they have staff in the streetcar to inform passengers (at least when I was riding) but its still a confusing system. It increased confusion but also reduced the number of people who had to get off or could not get on because they couldn't pay.
  3. In the late 2020's cash is going to make a comeback and all the hipsters will pay in gold bullion.
  4. Just as much as being able to embed tweets are a sign of online forum gentrification.
  5. I did a research paper on this case for grad school and it set a precedent for eminent domain in Ohio. Turns out you cannot ED property for economic development! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Norwood_v._Horney
  6. Here's a peculiar one in Chicago. Not sure what the story is for this one.
  7. It kinda bugs me that the Southbank Shuttle and the #12 are being combined. This means they will stop running the trolley buses (finally!) but the tradeoff is the they can no longer cross the Suspension Bridge. I've always been perplexed as to why the Southbank Shuttle didn't run a look from Covington to Newport (instead of bouncing back and forth between them via downtown.) In the past TANK people said there is not enough rider demand. But how can we know if we are afraid of having buses cross the Licking River?
  8. If true, that would make it the 6th street cut or eliminated as part of FC's grand plan for an urban stadium.
  9. It would be nice to get multi-family back at Dorchester and somehow recreate the Excelsior Street steps.
  10. Most of the parking reduction is an experiment to disincentive courthouse users. Under the old scheme, 90% of the metered spaces were being used by people going to the courthouse for trials (defendants, lawyers, jury, etc.) and they were maxing out parking and getting tickets. Also there will likely be angled parking on the south side of Court west of Vine for at least a block. So, in total there will be MORE street parking than before! These business owners are on the committee and their concerns are being looked at. So this petition is more of a PR stunt than anything.
  11. They were working on the roof of that building today. Looks like that building and next to it are getting rehabbed. Also there is interior demo going on at the building on the northeast corner of Race and Liberty, the old Race Inn and the pair of buildings with the Rosemary Clooney mural on Pleasant.
  12. You’ve probably never heard of them. But they could decide the fate of the Western Hills Viaduct or your local intersection. The key passage here: There are forces at work to make sure the additional funds only go towards roadway projects with little concern for transit. We are dangerously close to having a "transit" levy that will keep the status quo and be a back door for more roads with lips service paid to buses.

  14. I can't believe they have an FBC that does not require sidewalks but here we are. Also the ones that do have them only go to the mailbox on the street. What a fail. https://www.google.com/maps/@36.1597169,-86.8535275,3a,75y,174.57h,83.18t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sJt9oLJQROZ7sX-q0DeA3Xg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
