Looking the Queen Up & Down (Cincy)

Recommended Posts

Well the other day I was whining publicly, on this forum, about wanting to get access to the Atrium II building's top level terraces (floors 27-30). That same day I was extended an offer from a fellow forumer who has access. Those terraces are amazing and I'm truly jealous that some people get to enjoy that everyday at work. Enjoy!

 

 

1. As I was walking over to 4th & Sycamore I saw this scene and couldn't pass it up given the recent news...

2. A couple Burnham beauties

9. The newly completed Ascent condominium tower has its sweeping design inspired by the Roebling Suspension Bridge seen here

10. Procter & Gamble world headquarters

11. It goes on for a couple blocks worth of buildings

21. Another view you don't see too often with the western hills in the background

22. The next few are looking south. This was one of my favorite views as you can see all the twists/turns of the Licking River as it approaches the mighty Ohio River

32. So long

Nice!

 

Have to say though - proctor and gamble's world headquarters is really unimpressive. You would think it would be much more grandiose.

Excellent shots.

 

The National City/PNC certainly makes a statement. My family has a long-standing business relationship with National City, only because that relationship started with Fort Wayne National Bank before it was eaten by National City. I'm waiting to see what happens to client service under PNC; it wasn't exactly outstanding with National City, compared to what it was before they took over.

These are great photos of several communities visible from that perspective. I've looked at a lot of Cincinnati urban images but none seems to be taken from this unique perspective. From this lofty perch, you can see why so many people consider Cincinnati to be one of the most picturesque cities in the U.S. (Brutalism architecture aside) Thanks!

"Looking the Queen Up & Down"

 

Pervert.

 

At first glance I thought this thread was about MayDay.  he he he he he

 

You know, they just had the famous drag queen race here in DC on 17th near Dupont...I thought it might be pics from that!

 

Awesome pictures.  Cincinnati is beautiful.  I just watched some youtube video from some guy in Cleveland saying that we should nuke Cincy and make Cleveland and NE Ohio its own state, and while I know it's a joke, it pisses me off that our state is so divided and can't recognize the beauty of all of Ohio from the hills of Cincinnati to the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland.  We have such a kick ass state, but unfortunately, many of our own citizens don't appreciate it.

I like how the hills in the distance are really noticeable in several of these shots.  Quite a setting for a midwestern city! 

Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Not enough travel between the 2 largest cities in Ohio, I'm afraid.  Now if we could just get that Ohio hub built...

 

Awesome pics, by the way.

Good point...I've lived in Ohio my whole life (not counting now, when I'm at school), but I've only been to Cleveland once, and that was for like 2 days.  It's sad that I've been to places like San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City -all places that are at least 4 hour flights, than I've been to Cleveland which is a 4 hour drive.
