The Streetcar Will Be Great For: Art Lovers

Posted on Updated on

Cincinnati is blessed with an amazing arts scene.  With many of the City’s main arts venues along the route, building a streetcar will allow arts patrons to park once and ride the streetcar to the numerous arts destinations in the urban core.

Someone going to see the Cincinnati Opera perform at Music Hall could park at Fountain Square, enjoy a meal a Via Vite and take the streetcar to and from the show.  Visitors could gallery hop using the streetcar to visit the art galleries on Main Street, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Taft Museum.  Or after seeing a show at Memorial Hall, take the streetcar down to the nightlife options on Walnut Street.

The Cincinnati Streetcar will tie together the some of the City’s finest arts venues with the regions two largest employment centers, 60,000+ residents, and all the entertainment and dining options Downtown and Uptown.  Support the Arts in Cincinnati–Build the Streetcar.

    The Mercantile Library was at 414 Walnut when the first generation of streetcars was built. The cars stopped at our front door. The Library is still at 414 Walnut Street where it will be when the new generation of streetcars is built. What do we have to do to get on your list?
