8 Gedanken zu „Cincinnati Views #2

  1. You may know this, although I didn’t find it mentioned in an admittedly quick scroll through your other Cincinnati posts. I was even more curious about that building with the lacy top, so I went looking, and found this on a Cincinnati media site in 2015:

    “ The Great American Tower at Queen City Square ended Carew Tower’s 81-year reign as the tallest building in Cincinnati in 2011 — and it did so with a crowning touch. Great American Tower is 495 feet tall at its roofline, but the steel tiara it wears on top pushed it into the No. 1 spot at 665 feet, making it the third tallest building in Ohio.

    HOK architects’ founder Gyo Obata, the building’s principal designer, came up with the tiara idea. He drew inspiration from Cincinnati’s nickname, the Queen City, and a photograph of a tiara worn by Diana, princess of Wales.“

    So there it is. That’s what the top of the building reminded me of, and what I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It’s a tiara!

    1. Thanks for the comment, Linda! 🙂 I think I should have known because I’m sure our guide told us, but I was more occupied in taking pictures than listening to her. 😉

  2. Wir hatten da fuer unsere gefuehrte Tour durch – mehr oder weniger das Zentrum von – Cincinnati wirklich einen ganz prachtvollen Tag erwischt. Mehr hier:

    Es war allerdings wahnsinnig heiss, und wir waren jedesmal froh, wenn es eine (kurze) Strecke per Strassenbahn ging. Die war naemlich klimatisiert. Und am Ende, nach einem Regenguss, war es auch noch sehr schwuel dazu. Aber eine ganz prima Tour. Und die Wolken machen sich hier, ebenso wie auf dem vorherigen Bild, echt praechtig.
