Fountain Square at night

Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati

It’s a great time of the year to be living downtown. I absolutely love the convenience of being able to go down to the Square, use the wi-fi and relax to the sound of the bubbling fountain – plus do a little people watching . A few nights ago I was down on the Square and captured this photo of the flower carpet, the fountain and the nifty LED facade on the ‘Lil Fifth Third building (and, on this night, a little Reds-watching – the game was on the big screen).

You can on the photo to be taken to a set with more photos from that night (and others).

  2. It’s also cool how FS takes on a different vibe after the sun goes down. I love it at any time of the day…the free wi-fi and people watching are both great.
