These days, Over-the-Rhine is a neighborhood of polar opposites. You’ve got the brand-new condos that “redefine urban living,” and you’ve got the homeless. There’s the much-discussed renovation of Washington Park that’s just starting right now, and there’s also the woman who’s quietly been maintaining the small green space on the corner of 13th and Republic, just a block from the park. Mostly, though, OTR is filled with more mundane moments, such as this ghost sign on the corner of Clifton and Vine.
I feel pretty sure that the person tending the garden at 13th and Republic is not a woman.
However, I would be embarrassed to find out I am wrong about that, after observing him for a few months now.
Okay, hmm. Maybe there are two people who share gardening duties? You know, I could have not mentioned gender at all, since I really just wanted to point out that this is a cool little development, not to stir up controversy about someone I don’t know.
LOL, I couldn’t place the grocery until I saw the graffiti. Shows the difference in what we notice in our world.
An amazing thing about OTR and all the one way streets, when we actually walk, and we’re walking against traffic I can never get over how much I’ve missed sitting in the car.
Yeah, noticing these small details is definitely a task for the pedestrian although, if I remember correctly, I took the photos above while our car was stopped at a red light.
I like what you guys are up too. Such intelligent work and reporting! Keep up the excellent works guys I have incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my web site.
