CINCINNATI'S NORTH SIDE
May 25 2011
First let's go to Beechcrest Lane in East Walnut Hills. Aside from the almost Sesame Street-style lightposts, the appeal here is the fact that this upper-crust road is signed as a private street, and I was defiant enough to use it without anybody's permission. Actually, however, the street is public - as I checked property records beforehand. Gotcha!
Continuing in the forbidden zone known as Beechcrest Lane. Later I discovered that part of Rain Man was filmed in a house on this street.
Going back the other way on Beechcrest.
This Allowed Cloud lurks at the beginning of Beechcrest - which, like I said, is actually a public street. Thus, I broke no laws. I think this particular sign is new since the last time I was nearby. They must have known I was coming after I saw the older sign. So shut up and prosecute me already.
Blah! South on Woodburn Avenue where it goes over I-71.
I heard rumors of some antique traffic signage on Dana Avenue, but I was furious to find that it had misappeared by the time I got there. It's the outrage of the millennium!
This video is practically an infomercial for Victory Parkway. We start off going west on Gilbert Avenue (US 22/OH 3), but the bulk of this clip is north on Victory.
Continuing a disappointing day, this is north on Reading Road - which is US 42 and was also US 25 until about 1974. I may already have a photo here, and if I do, tough.
A present from Paddock Hills! This is west on Tennessee Avenue, going under this beautiful old rail overpass.
This might also be a rerun. This is north on Vine Street in St. Bernard where it goes under I-75.
The day wasn't a complete bust. I explored this abandoned street - Station Avenue in St. Bernard - up close and personal. This is going west, away from Vine.
Back east on the long-abandoned Station Avenue. The building at left was once a railway station.
Finally, we're south on Spring Grove Avenue.
