Interesting article on Nashville TN in Preservation Magazine

One could draw some interesting parallels between Nashville and Cincinnati. Both have Historic neighborhoods, both had an interstate result in wholesale destruction and both had large public housing projects and section 8 in their historic neighborhoods.

Nashville has embraced preservation and historic tourism and Cincinnati can't seem to wrap its collective mind around the concept. Nashville is successful and well we all know the struggles of the Preservation Community in Cincinnati.

Interesting article and interesting city and would be a good "weekend getaway" for anyone wanting to get ideas on how to turn a city, or neighborhood, around. Perhaps we need to load our city council on a bus and send them there?
