pittsburgh,san franscisco,and baltimore,seattle got it right.. they rest are ugly IMO for the retro styled parks
Paul Brown is great, its just a shame it hosts the Bengals...
On the plus side, there's been talk of building an arena either near or in the same spot where the Broadway Commons ballpark was planned. The city hopes it'll be a shot in the arm for Over-the-Rhine, and with the Main Street bars only a few blocks away, it might actually work, especially after concerts and whatnot. Maybe someone like the Bearcats could jump on board, but I doubt they'd leave Fifth/Third Arena (built in 1989).
Still, with Riverfront Coliseum (US Bank Arena, renovated about ten years ago), Cincinnati Gardens, the Cintas Center (Xavier University), and Fifth/Third Arena (UC), its not like Cincinnati has a dearth of indoor sporting venues.
