No. It’s unique to the short north. Doing it elsewhere would not have the same effect. The money would be put to better use somewhere else.
actually, it isn’t unique to the short north! we have them in Old North Columbus, there are also some on the East side AND in Merion Village.
In fact, Mr Waitress and I were driving down Parsons today and I said “you know, they should put arches here. they should put arches everywhere and we could just be the city of arches.”
As someone already pointed out, there were arches all over our fair city 100 years ago – i’d like to see them return.
Yeah, I think this would be awesome.
I like the colored lights in the arches and think they should run them all the way down High. I’d say unlit arches or (warm) white lights elsewhere.July 27, 2010 1:48 pm at 1:48 pm #391728
I like the shamrock arch for Merion village, it’s fun. The KLD one is big and makes a statement.
Love the idea of gas lamps for German Village.July 27, 2010 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #391729

Absolutely agree. If, however, it takes like 9 years per arch to get the lights working (or however long the Short North fiasco took), I’m not sure that is the identity we want.
Easy fix. Don’t hire the same contracting company (EG&G, Co) that screwed them up the first time. ;)
