OTR Gateway

as a teenager that grew up in the country, i had little to no idea what the city really was. but by the time "Friends" came out on tv i decided i wanted to be a city girl. like it was something i could turn into i guess? i can handle that! loud noises? crime? gum stuck to everything?  but then it happens- the moment. the moment you're living alone Carrie Bradshaw style and a rat runs through your apartment. you realize oh god, what have i done. i was not cut out for this life.  and so, here i am. and here i'll stay. Cincinnati is just enough city for me. i can't say it enough how much i love it here. today i went exploring around the OTR gateway. i love it down there for its shops, like Park + Vine, and all of little boutiques and graphic design studios. the whole area smells like hot dogs and looks like an art project.


  1. Fun! I love these photos. We've not spent much time in Over the Rhine, but I have a whole list of restaurants to try and shops to check out. Must do soon. (And I agree - Cincinnati is just the right amount of city!)

    1. thanks anne! we probably have the same list :)

  2. Great picture. I love the buildings in the bottom one, they're so colorful.
