We did it! Cincinnati voted to save Union Terminal!
This is important for so many reasons, and our favorite one is that in a culture that increasingly leaves history in the dust, we get to keep a “through-line” from the early 20th Century, on into the 21st – preserving that history, meaning, artistry, a culture that defines our city and reminds us of our origins. In moving into the 21st Century, we think that knowing our history helps us grow and change by giving us a solid historical footing.
Once upon a time, another Cincinnati icon – Music Hall – had to be approached by boat! On the side that is now Central Parkway was a body of water called the Miami Canal. Across the water from Music Hall was the Children’s Hospital, as you can see in this image:
We heard today that for one of the large advertising agencies in town, it is difficult to get prospective job seekers to move to Cincinnati from places like L.A., New York, San Francisco…. The perception that we are not as shiny and “jumpin'” as these places is something we wouldn’t want to argue. But the perception that Cincinnati is dull and uninteresting – well, nothing could be further from the truth. And that’s based on historical fact as well as our deep love for Cincinnati.
So, it is with great excitement and gratitude and brow-wiping relief that CincyLand announces to the rest of the social media universe that Union Terminal is going to be saved and renewed, and its Art Deco and historical magnificence passed to other generations.
Think we’re alone in our praise? Consider this: “No organized group went public to oppose Issue 8.”
