Cincinnati CBD: Off the Beaten Path

Cincy CBD - Off the Beaten Path - August, 2013

At one point or another in the history of the Queen City, it’s likely one could have gotten lost in the alleys and passages of downtown.

I wonder to myself:  Were they always this deserted?  Or did they have more life?

If you search diligently, you can find certain spots that still give a sense of what life might have been like in these wayward nooks of the city.

Recently, a staffer here at PE explored an area around Morand Alley, Shillito Place and College Street.  Here’s the visual result if that trip.

Ghost signs abound.
