Photos: Northside and Mount Auburn, early fall

The following photos were taken on September 7, 2012 (Northside) and October 23, 2012 (Mount Auburn).

The Northside photos were taken during a media preview for the 2012 CitiRama at Virginia Place, and then later in the day during an open house for a couple of properties rehabilitated using federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP2) funds at the corner of Chase Avenue and Fergus Street. The Mount Auburn photos were shot during a bus tour of Uptown highlighting details of the new Uptown Transit District.

These 18 photos have been added to the following galleries:
  • Northside +13 (186 photos)
