Nice to see the streetcar in the scene too... can't wait for additional transformation there (read - more foot traffic).
Yes - the transformation of OTR has been incredible; the streetcar now a very real, integral component of such dramatic change!

i've wavered on this issue, ultimately being against it. but now i hope i can only be proven wrong. i'm sure y'all have hashed this **** out, but without the uptown connection i really don't see why they were hell bent on going forward. the streetcar probably should have started there. if anyone's going to use the thing it's college kids especially since uc isn't as much a commuter school anymore. otr to clifton makes sense. clifton and vine being the principle roads. skip downtown.

ultimately, the streetcar is already a success, if you want to give it credit for the revitalization and preservation of otr. streetcar fever such hit north avondale next. just feed them the line, "dude, streetcar." wait, how did walnut hills become great again? why is northside awesome? did people take a vested interest in their hood? but as a northsider, i don't think i want it coming here. we're already experiencing gantry-fication, which is an apartment building taking away greenspace designed to lure in the yups making the neighborhood more out of the price range for the people who ultimately would thrive in this environment so they go to brighton.

but i hope the streetcar becomes a people mover. a ghost train can only house nicholas cage. nobody wants to see that

Isn't that option better than just let it stay as is? You should ALWAYS try to better yourself. Including cities. It will me more taxes collected which would lesson the burden on many things that have been neglected over the years. What I do not want is what is happening in Colorado where there is no rent control and cost of living has skyrocketed.

when we bought our house, we had too many things to put on the walls. i wanted to put them all up because these were mostly things she had meticulously brought back from mozambique. she said she didn't want them all put up because negative space is valuable. it's aesthetically pleasing. and that's attractive. you can cram a bunch of ***** upon a city block and call it money but nothing has value too.

the cost of living in my neighborhood is going to be affected by this complex. my one buddy wanted to move to northside but couldn't afford it. he's the person the hood wants, needs, cultivates. bought a house in price hill. actually surprised me that he couldn't afford it here. but i've heard the same from others. it'd suck for northside to become unaffordable for cool people

Ahh.. but the northside speculators - who have for decades been saying that "Northside is about to take off" will be delighted to hear that your buddy was priced out.

And then the speculators will move on to another neighborhood....

and the boom/bust cycle of pricing those of moderate means out of certain neighborhoods will continue...

Since similar really has been mentioned here, let me sneak this in here, if it will take. Moderation can take it out. Apparently perfectly sane people are riding it.

Holiday Train

Wait for a night scene and enjoy it.
