What are painted ladies? Happy to explain as I, myself did not know until we began our journey through Columbia-Tusculum. The painted ladies are the beautifully colored homes covering the hills of Columbia-Tusculum. Not only does the oldest neighborhood in Cincinnati have picturesque landscape, but great places to visit. CT is green, and not just for Greenerstock and Green Dog Cafe - which are AWESOME, but for the green doors of the Irish Heritage Center, Allyn's Cafe signature gator dishes, the green curtain of the Midwest Ballet Theatre, the sustainable and toxic free environment of Moksha Yoga and even the paint used on the CPS building housing the Cincinnati Early Learning Center.
This is an awesome hood - and more than just worth one visit, I have already been back several times! I'm hooked!
Columbia-Tusculum was a joy to cover and as we wrapped up our visits with Moksha Yoga -

...yes, I know this is my second blog about Columbia-Tusculum, but I just couldn't help myself! The place is great. Check out my last for more pics and oh! the podcast, published tomorrow, March 1st on Local Exposure - a production of 91.7 WVXU, Connecting You to a World of Ideas!!
