Columbus, OH last fall (99 photos)

I've had these photos since October of last year; however I've only now finally gotten around to uploading them to my flickr account. The photos are all from the Short North/Italian Village/Victorian Village/Harrison West areas. As far as Columbus is concerned, I know this area tends to receive the most coverage, but I've never done my own photo tour. So here's my take on what I view as the best area of Columbus.























































































































(only very minor adjustments of the saturation... the colors really were this vibrant not only here, but in most of my photos)
















































































Hope you enjoyed the fall photo tour of my favorite area of Columbus.

Great neighborhoods - especially those brick homes.

I know Columbus has a large gay community - do these neighborhoods have a lot of gay folks (noticed at least one pride flag)?

Yes, these photos are from the areas that are generally rather popular with gay residents - which is the Short North in conjunction with Italian Village and Victorian Village/Harrison West (that's not to say other neighborhoods aren't also popular with the gays). The Short North was a big arts gayborhood in the 90s, but over the past decade as gays have become increasingly more accepted throughout the country, this neighborhood has evolved into a much more mixed straight/gay area. Plenty of trendy bars & restaurants that cater to both orientations.

Great tour- I don't think many people realize that Columbus has such a wealth of historic urbanity. For whatever reason, popular perception seems to be sprawly and suburban in nature. Obviously that is not the case!

I've never been to Columbus but have been looking at it a lot on Google Streetview lately. This city has a lot of character, and it should be receiving a whole lot more national attention than it has been.

Yeah, Columbus is sort of off the radar compared to its counterparts Cleveland and Cincinnati.

Hell of a town. Always has been, always will be.

It's the outerbelt that gives it the impression of being a "new city" as most freeways go nowhere near the core. Even I-71 and I-70 follow watersheds into the city, avoiding "historic density."

Columbus has some classy-looking neighborhoods.

This is good stuff:

I did another hour's worth of Google Street View tonight, looking all over Columbus. Whenever someone wants to boost their city, they should first look at Columbus. They'll be humbled. Even the suburbs have a lot of character. I also saw a lot of nice looking commercial thoroughfares on Street View.
