September 2015


Never forget
It is today's generational touchstone - everyone remembers where he or she was when they first heard about 9/11. On this somber occasion, let's all pause and remember, reflect and renew. new again
The Cincinnati Streetcar is on track to begin operating in September 2016, just about a year away. This artist's rendering shows the streetcar at a station in front of Rhinegeist in Over the Rhine, one of 18 stops along the 3.6 mile route from The Banks to OTR through downtown. 

Everything old...
This photo from 1912 shows a streetcar heading north on Main at Fifth from approximately the location of modern-day Government Square. In the center, you can see the Gwynne Building, currently the home of Metro's administrative offices. When it begins operating in September 2016, the new Cincinnati Streetcar will follow this same path.
