Photos: In Newport, let's go to court!

The following photos were taken on August 30 during a press conference for the dedication of the Campbell County Courthouse's $31M expansion and renovation project.

Because press conferences NEVER start on time, I made my way to the Taylor-Southgate Bridge to grab a couple of long distance photos. I should've kept walking...the presentation was boring.

There are a couple of additional photos. Both were taken on November at the stalled The Views project in Covington's Lewisburg neighborhood, and the other near the site of the mixed-use River's Edge at Eastside Pointe project in Covington's East Side neighborhood.

These 15 photos have been added to the following galleries:
  • Taylor's Landing (Newport) +13 (52 photos)
  • Cincinnati skyline +1 (95 photos)
  • East Side (Covington) +1 (4 photos)
Please click on each photo to enlarge to 800 x 600 resolution.

Like what you see? The Building Cincinnati galleries include 4,947 photographs of dozens of Greater Cincinnati communities.
