And, Ohio History Museum to the riverfront.May 19, 2016 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm in reply to: Idea: Relocating Crew Stadium to the Arena District #1127429
Great idea about moving Crew Stadium to the Arena District. Thumbs up.
Columbus is an overwhelmingly positive city. But we’re too often satisfied with little or nothing. Sometimes,that can be a mistake.
We need to step up our game. What we’re doing just isn’t enough, and we lag seriously behind our peer cities.
How small minded and peevish can we be? What about the wonderful Pay Days Loans building and the Family Dollar and the UDF? Wish the Short North were Buckhead in Atlanta. But then, Atlanta is Atlanta, and Columbus is, well.. enough said.
The VVC has held the neighborhood (and indirectly downtown) back time and again, which is quite tragic really, since this is one of our most vibrant areas.
It’s high time we had a true alternative to car transportation.
That’s great, now what about our BRT line?
Well, it’s good news to have some dinosaurs at COSI. Maybe, the Ohio History Connection will move to the riverfront?
Yes, a $15 Minimum wage is a good thing and essential. I’m very much for it.April 1, 2016 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm in reply to: Two25 17 Story High Rise Proposed for SE Columbus Commons #1120965
We probably won’t have rail service here, until there is a major new innovation in rail (or something rail like) nationally. Then, twenty years after everyone else has it in their city, we’ll get it here, maybe.
My guess is any real, new museums won’t truly materialize until mid century.
Also, our art museum still pales in comparison (both the building and the collection) to Cleveland, Cincy,or Toledo. Now we’re about on part with Dayton, maybe. Though we have some minor major sports, our Symphony, Ballet and Opera are very much regional companies. Not so in Cleveland. Yet, we have the population, while acting like a small town. That’s why we’re still the biggest small town in America. Of course, home is where the heart is. And happiness depends on what your doing in a place and who you know there, really.
I’ll be glad when we finally put our downtown together,and improve our public transportation options. Cleveland is way, way ahead of us in these things. I assume it will take another 30-50 years to achieve here. We look nothing like Austin.
