One of the best urban neighborhhoods in the Midwest for sure. I would never have believed it 25 or 30 years ago when it was a place to avoid unless you were looking for trouble.

Agreed! A really positive and informative article; should be required reading by urban lovers everywhere. (BTW, the renderings of the new boutique hotel, The Joseph, look great. Hopefully, no one will tamper with this dynamic design and minimize its striking appearance.)

"Losing that quirky, artistic edge would be bad for business..."
What art? Is there more art than 15 years ago? I get the feeling that the person who wrote this article hasn't been to the Short North recently. But, the marketing drones love to portray it as something it ain't...anymore.
At least the Biv is still nearby, but closed alot.

I'm not sure if there's more or less art now than 15 years ago. I can think of at least half a dozen galleries in the area, and there's a fairly significant one opening up with the Pizzuti hotel project. Regardless, the Short North is significantly better now than 15 years ago. There are more restaurants, bars, shops and most importantly, more residents. Most of the Short North was actually losing residents through the late 1990s, but has seen strong growth since then, so I don't think the argument can be made that the area hasn't gotten better.

It's too bad you weren't able to tell the Times about this, preventing unnecessary embarrassment by writing a piece that runs completely contradictory to your professional views.
