So for thirty-or-so years we dined above a toxic waste site?

Default The Roselawn Center Building has been spiffed up

A longtime landmark which fronts partially on Reading Rd was bought a while back, and its new owners have invested in a "multimillion dollar renovation." (I saw an office-space ad recently.)
Check it out:

Hard to believe it's been seven months since this thread's seen any activity!

If only the walls could talk! When I was a kid in the 50s there was a card game in one of the Section Road side second floor suites.


Cards, booze and prostitutes! Ah, the good old days

Can anyone share any anecdotes about the history of the neighborhood bounded by Reading (on the west), McMillan (on the north) and Florence (on the East)? I saw this wedge shaped area referred to as Walnut Hills "Southwest Quadrant" in an urban planning document published back in the 1980s. I know the construction of I-71 must have had a devastating impact on it, because it sliced right through what was apparently a very lively, densely populated residential neighborhood. I ask because I just learned my great grandparents lived near the corner of Symmes and Morgan back in 1910, and I found a journal written by one of them describing the area - train station nearby, the local grocer, working class homes along the alley where I-71 now flows (they called it "Happy Hollow" because of the people I guess). Anyway, it sounded fascinating.

Yes, it used to be Frisch's. My grandmother used to take me there to eat in the early 70s when I was a child.

i remember bilker's very well. my parents use to go in their all the time and look at the stuff they would buy if they had money. one yesr (in the 50's), they got a $200 income tax return check. so we all went to bilker's to shop until we dropped. i think we spent less than twenty five dollars because we decided we could live withut that stuff.

Default Cincinnati to rename Reading Road ‘President Barack Obama Avenue’

https://www.fox19.com/2020/10/01/cin...-obama-avenue/


Quote:
Councilmembers Jan-Michele Kearney and Wendell Young submitted the motion to rename Reading Road for the entire stretch within Cincinnati city limits, from Downtown north to the city’s border at the community of Reading at Galbraith Road.

This made me sick when I read it. Not politically (although I never liked Obama) but historically


My entire childhood, through college, wiped out by a stroke of a pen


They should have picked a new road, or a part of an existing road, not the entire segment


The cost in signage, the cost to businesses, the confusion, all will be through the roof.

I think "Obama Ave" would be sufficient...
This compensates for naming the Cross-County Highway after Reagan.
