Dude..Ink..how can you say that? Mt. Adams is about as good as it gets.

 

The one and only time i've been near downtown Dayton, I wasn't impressed at all. We went on some street...i dont know, maybe it was called third street but it was a main street going through the west side and there was seriously vacant store front after vacant store front for like an entire mile or longer.

 

These pics make Dayton look really nice; I wish I could have experienced that Dayton.

Its all opinion...dude. As far as this set goes, I was more taken with Dayton. Mt. Adams is no doubt beautiful, as is the rest of the city, don't get me wrong.

 

But I do believe your opinion would change if you explored more of Dayton. I don't think ColDay had to do all that much.

Bingo.  While I do love Cincinnati endlessly, with the architecture, history, neighborhoods, etc., Dayton is still home, #1 for me, and such.  But I don't care who likes what; they are just photos of my two favorite cities.

Great job!

 

I like both cities. When I attended the meet in Cincinnati, I wasn't very familiar with it. In addition to the topography and architecture, it has a lot of neighborhoods and each one I saw had its own character. I expected something good, and got much more than I expected.

 

Dayton impressed me, too. Admittedly, trolley buses had something to do with it; I love them. The downtown still has some good examples of the kind of architecture I grew up with, and some of the new stuff (Schuster Center) is wonderful; with a resurgence of downtown activity Dayton could have a great feel. I'd like to see what it's like on game days. BTW, Dayton's art museum is world class; stunning setting, gorgeous building, and first-rate exhibits.

Really fantastic shots!  The lighting seems perfect in so many of them.

 

As long as this stuff has been stirred up, I'll just say that for me Cincinnati wins in aesthetics, but there really are a lot of cool things in Dayton, and the character of the two places seems pretty different.  A ColDay tour of Dayton should be a requirement for everyone; there's much more to Dayton than most visitors probably ever notice.

I don't even know why this is a competition in general.  Hell, they are both SW Ohio cities with different vibes, histories, and architecture.  Hell, I say embrace them both.  I don't see Akron posts and people comparing it to Cleveland (then again, I rarely see Akron posts to begin with...a pity).

I think Eden Park is far superior to Main Strasse.  Hands down!  Also, Beethoven kicks Monet's ass!

 

(Phenomenal pictures, by the way!  Glad I let you escape to get the Mt. Adams shots while I finished the meatloaf!)

Yer right on Akron. I wonder if any one on this board is from there. Yall don't show love for your home or something!? Even the UrbanOhio.com website has very little on Akron...

Only 2.5 percent of the people that took the poll in Urban Bar are from Akron. Almost everyone lives in Cleveland, Cincinnati, or Columbus.

I wish I knew Cincinnati better. I'm ashamed to say my only experience with it is from I-75 on the way to Florida as a kid.

With West Coast prices being what they are, this former San Fransican is looking for a cool place I could afford. Could Cincinnati fit the bill?

^No doubt!  If you're looking for a San Francisco-style streetscape, Columbia Tusculum will make you feel right at home!  Here's a thread by Uncle Rando and there's some Tusculum action in this Grasscat thread.  It's one of the pricier neighborhoods, but compared with San Francisco prices, it's a steal - basically, $200K-$500K, some cheaper, some more expensive.

 

Lots of more affordable areas too.  You can get solid housing stock under $100K in Madisonville, Pleasant Ridge, Walnut Hills, etc., etc...and $200K will get you into just about any neighborhood in the city outside of Hyde Park and Mt. Adams...

Last week alone at my job I ran into four people who just moved to the area. One from Colorado, one from Atlanta,  the other two from California.  So there is my answer.

I used to live in the Bay Area too, and yes, Columbia/Tusculum will remind you a lot of The City and a bit of Sausalito.

 

ColDayMan did some good pix of St Annes Hill there.  A bit of Mr Know-It-All (but not really) trivia from me...that building with the Sachs-Pruden Ale faded wall sign...the Sachs-Pruden brewerey was, I think, the current Hauer Music store over on Patterson.
