Downtown details.

It was cold outside today. I was going to walk through the Skywalk to avoid the cold on my way to the bus. On my way to the Skywalk, I noticed that the Millenium Hotel was closed and undergoing a liquidation sale…

I walked through the Hyatt Regency up to the second floor across The Skywalk over to Carew Tower. Carew Tower was having their 2020 Fight For Air Climb to support the American Lung Association by climbing the 804 Stairs over 45 floors of Carew Tower…

I was going to continue on through the Skywalk from Carew Tower across Fifth Street to Fountain Place but that portion Skywalk was closed…

I left Carew Tower and noticed the skating rink on Fountain Square had been taken down, just as it’s starting to feel like actual skating weather…

The Booksellers on Fountain Square is closed now…

Looking inside Fountain Place everything is closed. And that made me wonder what happened to Palomino up on the second floor

I went to see if Palomino was still there and it didn’t look good…

And Palomino’s gone and that’s pretty sad. I was happy to see that the Toynbee Tile was still on Seventh Street

And I noticed that there was a new-to-me Artworks mural on the side of the Hustler just a little ways down Seventh Street…

I walked by Deskey and they removed the mantra they had on their front windows

I always thought the mantra was kind of ridiculous. The almost full moon was already starting to pop out from behind the buildings…

And the exterior of the building at the corner of Eighth and Main Streets looked really close to being completed…

It’s interesting to me how much things can change downtown over just a few months but also just how much things stay the same. And the only real constant is change.
😀🏙️🚧❤️

Constructing Northside.

Construction has made its way into Northside. They’ve been working on Hamilton Avenue on and off for a while now. And when I was walking home for the bus stop this evening, I noticed the construction was starting to migrate from Hamilton in our direction. At the intersection of Brookside and Pullan…

And on Donaldson around the corner from our house…

Up by the school, someone lost their 5…

Good evening from Northside. 😀🚧5⃣🌄❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

The building at the corner of Main and Eighth Street is really coming along…

But I still can’t believe there won’t be any on-site parking. 😀🚧❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

When I was on the Metro17 bus coming home, I managed to grab a pretty blurry snap of the building at the corner of Main and Eighth Streets. It has windows and siding on the front facade now…

I wonder what the apartments will look like on the inside. I heard somewhere that the building won’t be offering any on-site parking. And that’s kinda odd to me. 😀🚧❤️

Part of a building collapsed.

Early this afternoon on Fourth Street the sixth floor of a building under construction suffered a partial collapse

The part that collapsed is right at the base of the tower crane…

Unfortunately, reports said that multiple people were injured in the collapse. Cincinnati Police said one person has died, and Cincinnati Fire & EMS were still searching for at least two more victims. It’s really sad and pretty scary stuff.

The structural integrity of the rest of the building was being assessed. The bottom of the building was slated to be a new parking garage with an apartment community situated atop of the garage. I don’t know if I would feel comfortable living in a building where a section of one of the floors collapsed. But that’s just me. 😬🚧❤️

On a more upbeat Constructing Cincinnati note, a new Asian fusion restaurant has opened at the corner of Seventh and Walnut Streets called e+o

Progress continues on the building across the street from where I used to work

Metro+Transit.

Cincinnati Metro has moved to the Transit app with EZ Fare

The Transit app with EZ Fare gives Cincinnati riders a single, seamless way to pay for almost all of our rides. You can now buy and store passes for Metro, NKY’s Tank, Butler County RTA and the streetcar CB Connector all in one place. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to pay for the $30 Regional Stored-Value Cards that I like to use. I’ll still have to purchase those at one of the streetcar stations. But it’s still nice to have a couple of Metro passes and CB Connector passes stored in the transit app just in case of emergency. It’s pretty cool really.

Speaking of pretty cool, look at how tall the building is getting across the street from where I used to work…

And I accidentally snapped this photo on the bus, but I kinda like it…

I like riding the bus. 😀🚌🚧❤️

Downtown details.

This is the view from Grey Midwest‘s big conference room overlooking the Cincinnati Bengals Paul Brown Stadium, John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge and Ohio River…

And walking to catch the Metro 17 bus home after work, I got to admire the new building across the street from where I used to work as it continues to rise…

😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

A while back, I did a kind of lackluster job of documenting my walk from work across downtown to catch the bus at Government Square. I gave it another pass tonight with similar results. I leave work and walk down McFarland Street…

This new graffiti just popped up the other day on Egan Alley…

I cross Elm Street and walk down Benham Alley…

There’s the construction site at Race and Fourth Streets with two tower cranes…

I walk down Fourth Street passed Unheardof sneaker shop…

On the other side of Vine Street, I walk by Aster on Fourth and the FC|C offices which were recently painted purple on the first two floors…

And I walk by the FC|C team shop

I walk by Dixie Terminal and Renaissance Hotel on Fourth Street and turn up Walnut Street to get Government Square on Fifth Street…

I really missed some key landmarks. Again. I’ll have to try to do a better job of documenting my walk from work down Fourth Street to catch the bus at Government Square. Maybe the third time will be the charm.  😀🏙️🚧❤️

Downtown details.

There was a big construction cone party out in front of Dixie Terminal on Fourth Street this morning…

It has to be some sort of joke right? 😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

Good evening from my old stomping grounds at Eighth and Main Streets…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️❤️
