The Question of Queensgate: Downtown Cincy’s western doormat headed for a makeover


Queensgate, Cincinnati.


Ah, Queensgate.

The viaducts. The industrial and commercial warehouses, as far as the eye can see.

The Mill Creek. The wide, dusty streets, where The Wild, The Innocent (sans The E Street Shuffle) walk.

The White Castle.

The abandoned car dealershipsdirty railroads, the bashed-out Hudy plant.

The Jail.


Headed east out of Queensgate, into Downtown Cincinnati.


My friend, you need an upgrade.

And it’s coming.

The perennial doormat to Downtown Cincinnati – amidst the proximity of Gest Street, Linn and Seventh streets – will be making an announcement soon.

Looking for a hint?

Why, sure.

Repeat after me:

Holiday. Celebrate.”
