In Cincinnati , no one would pay attention to this charming little Second Empire cottage on Queen City Ave. as they flew by at 50 MPH (speed limit is 30 by the way). Now in any other city this would be a highly prized property. If you could even find one. Second Empire Architecture is extremely rare or non existent in may cities and in many parts of the county. We still have thousands but we lose them every year to neglect and demolition.
This was just one of the many points I made on Saturday when I met with a reporter from the Cincinnati Enquirer. If you would like to learn more about what makes this neighborhood special, you might want to attend the Free Historic Walking tour sponsored by the Knox Hill Neighborhood Amsssociation. You will see a great collection of Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Colonial revival and even a one of a kind Art Deco building, Saturday the 11th at 9:30 am . We will meet in front of the Orion Academy on Queen City. Reservations are not required but we'd like to get an idea of how many are coming. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Rain Date will be Sunday.
