There’s a story in Soapbox Cincinnati about Fountain Square’s makeover and the resulting impact in the surrounding area.
A few years ago, my friend Chris and I were at a happy hour in front of what was then Bella when an out of town police officer visiting Cincinnati for a convention asked us where he could go after the happy hour to grab a drink. Chris and I looked at each other and apologetically told the guy that there really weren’t many choices in the downtown area. The story is so different today.
It is absolutely exciting to see downtown teeming with life. Now, if more in Cincinnati would realize how much progress has been made.
Kudos go to Bill Donabedian and 3CDC for organizing these activities and bringing life back to the Square.
