The "Indiana Jones" of Cincinnati.



/

How an adventure to a not-so-interesting abandoned location reminded me of my intense, dislike for slithering creatures.

Is Cincinnati Home to the 'Most Dangerous Neighborhood' in America? I Beg to Differ...

I woke up this morning to find a friend of mine on facebook had posted a link to an article which claimed the "neighborhood" of "Central Parkway/Liberty St." was the "worst neighborhood in the United States"

Is it? No! Here's some living proof:

The few blocks highlighted in this "study" are merely a small sliver of the much larger "Over-The-Rhine" neighborhood and yes, when you take historical data of crimes that occur in this area, they are quite high, but I'm sure if you took the number of crimes that occur on the street I live on then divide it by the small number of residents, you'd also get a high number.

The Catacombs of Cleveland



/

In Cleveland, beneath the Veterans' Memorial Bridge, crossing over the Cuyahoga River, is an abandoned deck which once provided an exclusive right-of-way to Cleveland's streetcars, while motor vehicles whizzed by overhead.

The Reds Have Been Losers For The Past 20 Years, The Cubs...For Over a Century.

I was browsing UER.ca the other day when I came across a thread by a user named "AeroFennec." Aero posted some photographs he had taken while exploring Shea Stadium, former home of the New York Mets, while it was being demolished. He remarked about his memories he had from the ballpark and I was really inspired by the photographs he had taken of Shea in it's partially demolished state. Seeing the Reds play this past Friday was a nice way to wrap up a stressful and shitty week at work. AeroFennec's photos reminded me of the games I saw as a kid at Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field. Some of my favorite photographs growing up were ones of the Cincinati Skyline with Cinergy Field in the foreground. Those mid 90's photographs are iconic in my mind, I just hope that one day maybe the photographs I take today will mean something to someone.
