Photos: Catching up with Moerlein, Smale, Elberon, and East Price Hill

The following photos were taken between April 1 and May 16 and have been sitting there, ignored, for what seems like forever.

The tour starts at the Moerlein Lager House at Smale Riverfront Park Downtown. I don't remember why I was there, Perhaps that's appropriate. There are some additional photos of the park that I took while wandering around. The beautiful space was not yet open, but was getting close. People were already enjoying parts of it.

The East Price Hill photos were taken during the ribbon cutting for the Elberon Senior Apartments, a fantastic, award-winning restoration of the building at W Eighth Street and Elberon Avenue.

The final shot was just some random thing seen around Downtown. If you follow my photo threads, you know I'm all about the random.

These 22 photos have been added to the following galleries:
  • Downtown +11 (422 photos)
  • East Price Hill +11 (83 photos)
Please click on each photo to enlarge to 800 x 600 resolution.
