Located at 800 Broadway in downtown Cincinnati, the old Times-Star Building by Samuel Hannaford & Sons opened its doors in 1933. The 16-story limestone building features an Art Deco façade that pays tribute to the printing and publishing businesses.
The architectural firm was responsible for many iconic Cincinnati buildings, from Memorial Hall in Over-the-Rhine to the Dalton Street post office in the West End, among many others.
On Reedy St., a side entrance just for newsboys:
In 1958, the Times-Star was purchased by The Cincinnati Post, which occupied the building until 1984. It was then bought by Hamilton County and is now used for county offices and by the Juvenile Court. I guess I’m glad that I’ve never had a reason to go inside.
Another grand old newspaper HQ is the Leader Building in Cleveland, designed by Charles Adams Platt.
