The map is great, and I appreciate how inclusive it is although, on a recent morning, I saw a group of people knock on the doors of two businesses on this map and request “tours.” Both times, I heard the person who answered the door explain that the place, though listed on the map, really wasn’t open to the public.
That’s kind of odd. Why would the group think a business is open for public tours?
I don’t know! Honestly, it was kind of funny, especially seeing it happen twice. Some of the places included just aren’t for walk-ins at all. For instance, Harvest Gallery on 15th is only open for receptions, which happen once a month at most. Still, even aside from that, the tour request doesn’t make sense.
The more I think about it the funnier it seems.
Great resource! In future editions please add 1420 Main Street, home of The Spotted Magpie, Cincinnati Film Festival, and Main City Station.
Main City Station is included. Contact the OTR Gateway Quarter merchants group for more info about inclusion.
Just curious: what was the area now known as the Gateway Quarter called before 3CDC coined it that about six year ago? Did it have an official name?
No, there wasn’t a name for this part of OTR before the redevelopment started. If there had been a name, I’m sure a new one would not have been created. More information about the name and its creation can be found here:
