  1. It is nice to see your coverage of Cincinnati on Apartment Therapy. There is something about it that transcends the pure boosterism that comes out of other attempts to showcase the highlights of this place. It humanizes it in a way that a lot of other efforts miss.

    In some ways it is as DIY as the other things that you covered above.

  2. Thanks. I think I may not be product-obsessed enough for AT, but it’s been fun to share some aspects of Cincinnati that I think are really unique.
