My hat goes off to Laure Quinlivan, WCPO’s intrepid I-Team reporter, who last week aired “New Visions of Vine Street,” a 30-minute commercial-free documentary and follow-up to her award-winning 2001 documentary, “Visions of Vine Street.” Both pieces are an excellent compare and contrast of the status and then the progress of what has happened in Over-the-Rhine during the past few years.
I haven’t spoken to anyone else yet about the show, but my thought is she did a splendid job of showing how things are really starting to take off here. I’ve lived in Over-the-Rhine now 2 1/2 years, right along Washington Park, across from Music Hall. It’s a great place to be, and is getting much better all the time. The future is looking brighter than it has in a long time… thanks to the effort, care and devotion of so many people.
Check out the show online… I think you will be surprised at what you see.
