    There is absolutely nothing safer about the area, just the illusion of safety because of the newness of it all as others have pointed out. Campus, between King and 15th, is basically a frightening place to be at night and not a place I walk alone.

    As far as vacancy, without actual facts, it appears that the west side of the street is doing much better than the east side. The east side, with the movie theater, etc looks about half vacant. I believe the west side is all full now (hip hip hooray for Five Guys!).

    I fear that the movie theater is next. Least populated movie theater that I go to, with perhaps the most expensive rent and expensive overhead. There is nothing worse than a vacant movie theater. Cant do much else with all that space.

    I’ll take a decent grocery store for starters, although the MOA would be fun for a month.

    Thus far:

    – Ohioana
    – Zippity Zam
    – Hot Ballywood
    – T-Dog

    Thus far I gotta go with the Ohioana!

    My goal is to not repeat until I’ve seen the menu thru.

    One of my main irks is with the Gateway. What is it a Gateway to? The neighborhood behind it or the school to the northwest of it. Sadly I dont think it is much to either other than mere geographical placement. In that sense then, sloppy old school south Campus was the same thing.

    I am nonetheless excited about any sort of movement around this part of the city. While it is far less glamorous than other parts of the city, it is so critical… despite my irks.

    Sure. None of the other places are Satan’s Lair. DF’s is just more accomodating.

    Well, I’m with you on the subject of section-8 and absentee landlords = fail.

    I never said that new developers would ruin the area. Just don’t want another Jeffrey. Nor the overall philosophy “if you build it they will come.” If it gets developed too quickly with new builds, could it backfire because of the lack of amenities (grocery stores, gas stations)?

    Thanks for your thoughts. This is why I asked- because I’m not that savvy.

    I think I am irked by the push for “upscale” building. “Winoland” park is coming along in a fascinating, grassroots way with a focus on education and community organization with minimal displacement and I just hope this doesnt disrupt the organic turn around that I’ve witnessed thus far.

    By non budget conscious, I am simply noting that students spend money like water- PBR and grilled cheeses, hot dogs, etc can do a lot for a community :)

    Wouldn’t it be nice to see the short north work it’s way up to Campus?

    It would be, but, what do you do with the poor? They already got displaced from the Short North and Ital Village. This is not an easy answer and should be reserved for a different thread, but it is extremely important.

    My dream is to see C-State and Franklin merge into one and create a truly urban campus to challenge the behemoth, Ohio State!!!

    Build lotsa student housing
    Sustain nightlife with voracious non-budget conscious student population
    Rid the sketchy side of downtown with non-yuppie, academic neighborhood.

    … Just my fantasy, I realize the barriers.

    One observation that a friend and I had was that DF’s is bringing the Lessner-cult followers (sorry) deeper into downtown AND tapping into a new market by having a family friendly atmosphere. Instead of stenciled scorpions, there are incredibly awesome murals of 80’s music and baseball icons! I had so much fun naming as many baseball players as I could (scored 90%- idea for a promo :). There were two families in there on Friday night, definitely something I havent seen before at the other establishments.
