Madisonville named Cincinnati's top neighborhood


Real estate firm Redfin recently released its national list of hottest neighborhoods. In Cincinnati, Madisonville came in on top, with Clifton and Madeira a close second and third.

Although not based on things like job growth, redevelopment projects or homeownership, Redfin's list of hottest neighborhoods is a prediction based on recent pageviews and favorites on its own website. The list reflects what neighborhoods and housing options people are looking at, and then ranks the cities based on those searches.

The future of transportation lies in hyperloop travel, Midwest Connect


Transportation could get a lot faster with the proposed hyperloop that could take passengers from Pittsburgh to Columbus in about 15 minutes.

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, which is based in Columbus, is among 35 semifinalists for the Hyperloop One Global Challenge. Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles company, is developing a system to move freight and passengers in pods that use low-pressure tubes and magnetic force.

The hyperloop, called Midwest Connect, would feature pods that would allow people to travel faster than airplanes, and for the about the price of a bus ticket.

As of right now, Midwest Connect is only in the early planning stages, and if built, would start out by connecting Pittsburgh, Columbus and Chicago. If successful, the program could launch in other areas of the country; and Cincinnatians could easily access the Columbus station via I-71.

Beer across the U.S. paints a picture of the country's regional ties


William Bostwick of The Wall Street Journal recently took a road trip that allowed him to explore the differences in beer styles across the country. He realized that each geographic region has a very distinct beer style that local brewers do well.

While on his trip, Bostwick spoke with Bryant Goulding, vice president and co-founder of Rhinegeist, who says that while breweries recognize their peers, there is still competition among the brewers. Each one wants to create a beer better than the next, which is why there are so many beers that are very similar but still distinctly different.

CVG gains momentum with addition of Southwest Airlines


In June, Southwest Airlines will begin flying in and out of CVG. It's a huge win for the airport, which recently downsized to just one terminal.

Cincinnati was known as a hub for Delta until a few years ago when a number of cutbacks affected Delta's service to CVG. Delta now only operates about 100 flights per week at the airport. This has opened the airport up to other airlines, including budget airlines like Allegiant, Frontier and now Southwest. 

Passengers will be able to take one of eight daily Southwest flights from CVG to Baltimore-Washington International Airport or Chicago Midway.

The New York Times celebrates Cincinnati's Overlook Lodge

The New York Times has discovered a Pleasant Ridge watering hole which pays homage to "The Shining," The Overlook Lodge.

In a Nov. 21  travel story which takes a look at movie bars, The Times considers the eerie details of the homey bar, from the axes on the wall, to the illuminated sign outside: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

A typewriter sits by the door, a square of carpet outside the bathroom — movie reference points. The cocktails menu includes Green Lady, Writer’s Block, the Summer Caretaker, the Elevator and Twin Shots, a reference to the film’s spooky girl ghosts. The decor runs to rustic chic with antler chandeliers, timbered eaves, a big stone fireplace and mid-century modern chairs.

People's Liberty draws national attention


One local experiment in philanthropy is drawing attention from groups around the country that are curious about the potential upside of spreading money through unusual channels.

Governing the States and Localities featured an article on People’s Liberty fellowships, through the Haile U.S. Bank Foundation. The fellowships allow recipients to take a year off to try to make their idea happen. Other grantees receive five-figure sums to carry out local initiatives that are innovative and achievable within a set time frame.

Plenty of people bat around good ideas for revitalizing empty storefronts or overgrown lots, said Jake Hodesh, vice president of People’s Liberty. The foundation not only gives them cash, but also helps them get set up. It’s an experiment in philanthropy that’s drawing attention from groups around the country that are curious about the potential upside of spreading money through unusual channels.
