So here's the story...
About a year and a half ago I'm down in Covington at the "landing." I snap this photo:
- Pardon the awful lens flare.
Now, I had thought that the Covington Landing was just like a riverfront area and that the pad from the photo was just a viewing area. Back in January, jmecklemborg and I are shooting an event at the NKY Convention Center and go for a walk to grab some food on our lunch break. We start talking about the Covington Landing and he mentions that there used to be a "floating mall" of sorts there with a T.G.I. Fridays and stuff.
I remember seeing the TGI Fridays as a kid, but don't remember the Covington Landing at all.
So would anyone mind cluing me in to exactly what this place was? I did some research before work this morning and came across a few articles, but not any really good photographs. Apparently they had a water taxi to Reds games and such?
Interesting note: One of the original investors was Gary Wach's who was the first GM of Kings Island Amusement Park.
Any info anyone wouldn't mind sharing would be great, I'm fascinated by the fact that this thing only lasted a decade.
