At the center of change in Cincinnati sits Over-the-Rhine. As more and more residents and visitors rediscover the charms of OTR, most are delighted to find a neighborhood rich in art, history and community. Architectural treasures like Music Hall
and Memorial Hall
sit side by side with new resources like the School for Performing Arts
and Washington Park
in this neighborhood that's been heralded as a national leader in urban transformation. Vine street is the area's hot spot as an eclectic array of restaurants and shops take hold next to the Ensemble
theaters. And the first leg of the city's new streetcar project is coming to life in the heart of OTR. The community's remarkable 19th-century buildings feature one of the largest collections of Italianate architecture and provide a dramatic background to the diverse residents that call OTR home.
