Corry Street has been re-striped and now has a center turn lane. A traffic light has also been added at the intersection of Short Vine and West Corry Street, which is also the main way to enter/exit the parking lot of the new Kroger.

This was the former Indian restaurant turned illegal casino called The Boneyard which experienced a fire back in 2012 or 2013 and was torn town soon thereafer.

Now they want $250K. Your post triggered a Google Alert that increased the value by $100k.

So apparently is in the new Corryville Kroger:



No one working at Kroger noticed how bad and how wrong this is because they probably don't know where any of those institutions are located.

Tom Waits bought a guitar at Mike's Music this past weekend.  Famous people buy guitars there several times a year...I talk to one of the workers fairly often and he always gives the update.  He said Ke$ha made them keep the store open about two years ago and showed up with her mom, screwed around for about an hour, and didn't buy anything.  He said she's really, really dumb.

That looks like it could be the 3rd floor where the really good guitars are.

Also, the owner of the guitar shop owns the building so it's not going anywhere for awhile.  But with Short Vine rapidly filling out he'll be under pressure to sell at some point.

Short Vine project combines buildings for larger bar, apartments



Construction is expected to wrap up this summer on a renovation project that combined two Short Vine buildings, creating a much larger Dive Bar and two new apartments.

According to the September 15 Planning Commission notes (page 19), Corryville is asking for Short Vine to officially be renamed from Vine Street to Short Vine Street.

Dan Schimberg of Uptown Rental Properties told me about a year ago that they were going to push for this, because most people around UC don't know what you're talking about when you say "Short Vine".

Can we just rename Jefferson to "Vine" if they rename "Short Vine"?

I like that idea. While we're at it, we could also get rid of .4 mile segment of Jefferson between Ludlow and Nixon. To clear up naming, I'd make the following changes:
  • Jefferson (Brookline - Nixon) - Rename to "Ludlow Avenue"
  • Jefferson (MLK - Taft) - Rename to "Vine Street")
  • Vine St (Corry to MLK) - rename to "Short Vine Street"

The original early 1980s proposal for MLK would have renamed all of Madison, Hopple, and Westwood-Northern as "MLK Drive".   The argument was that we'd have one east-west road that crossed most of the county.

This just blew my mind that Westwood Northern Blvd. and Madison Rd. are actually the same street.

for reference, Madison used to dead end at Woodburn. There was no street thAT connected west from Woodburn at DeSales Corner. You had to go north or south on Woodburn to find a different cross street

You've known it as Short Vine; now it's official



One of Cincinnati’s quirks is getting a little less odd as the Short Vine Entertainment District was officially named such at an unveiling ceremony this morning.

Cincinnatians have called the portion of Vine Street between East Corry Street and the Martin Luther King Jr./Jefferson Avenue interchange by the Short Vine nickname for years. On Thursday morning Vice Mayor David Mann and the Short Vine Business Association members hosted a ceremony to unveil its official name change from Vine Street to Short Vine.

So it's just "Short Vine" and not "Short Vine Street"? Bogart's new mailing address will be 2621 Short Vine, Cincinnati, OH 45219.

That's *nothing*, up here in Dayton we have a road that's alternately named Turner, Shoup Mill, Needmore, Harshman, or Woodman depending on where you are, plus it has the honorific title of Wright Brothers Parkway.

The idea of a single road that runs the length of the county probably was a good idea pre-interstates, but now no one drives on local roads more than they need to, so it really doesn't matter. However I am always jealous of cities that keep their street grid numbering pattern going beyond the CBD and have extremely highly numbered streets, like 257th Street. Here in Cincinnati it only goes up to 15th Street.

On the northern side of Oakley there are 28th - 34th street then it randomly stops again and switches back to names. I am curious what grid they were a part of...maybe pre-I-71 the numbers continued into Norwood.

Numbering also resumes in Carthage up to at least 77th Street.

Also, the official name is now "Short Vine Street"

Yeah, I was just going to say, up by the famous (infamous) Indian car dealership in the Carthage/Bond Hill area, there are several numbered streets in the 70s and maybe 80s. I remember when I first saw them, I thought “is this area actually 79 blocks from the river?”
