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.

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.Β Β πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈπŸš§β€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

Tag! You’re it. There are some really talented graffiti artists out there.Β πŸ˜€πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Dream big & Fly high.

I ran out to get something for lunch. (I got a caesar salad fromΒ MidiCiΒ at Race and Sixth Streets. It was really good.) On my way back to the office, I noticed this new-to-me mural for the very first time…

I don’t if it’s really a true mural though. It kind of looked like it was painted on board or some sort of substrate and then mounted to the building’s facade. Nonetheless, it’s pretty neat. πŸ˜€πŸ–ŒοΈπŸŽ¨πŸ·β€οΈ

#CincyStreetBots πŸ€–

When I was walking around downtown Cincinnati today, I stumbled across another one of those little (what I’m calling)Β #CincyStreetBots

But it was so long ago and I’m sooo far behind on our blog that I can’t remember where exactly in downtown Cincinnati that I saw this one. And that’s a bummer. πŸ™πŸ€–β€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

TAG! You’re it! πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

TAG! You’re it.

TAG! You’re it. Seen and noted on Central Parkway. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

Tag! You’re it. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Seen and noted.

Everyday on our way home from downtown, we drive by this house up on the hill at the corner of West McMillan Street and Central Parkway

I haven’t been able to figure out what’s going on with the facade. But it looks like they painted windows and buttresses and some sort of scene that involves a goat…

Thtat’s different. I wonder what the story is behind that uniqueness. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

Every time I’d walk by this archway on my way down a little alley to go to Dunkin Donuts in downtown Cincinnati, I was always kind of shocked that there wasn’t any graffiti on it…

And there you go… Tag! You’re it. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Oh, and I thought the light was really pretty between the buildings this morning on the way back to the office…
