An initiative to create a bicycle commuter and multi-use recreational trail on an abandoned rail grade in northeast Columbus, Ohio.
Sweet map. But we'll have to bike through Linden, oh the horror! This would be a great trail because it makes a huge lesser-known section of the city much more accessible. From the bikeways map it looks like they want to do a bike-lane along most of Cleveland, though it would be nice to have the trails too. I've been photographing urban neighborhoods as a little hobby of mine, being the urban enthusiast (some would say geek) that I am. So as an aside, any interesting streets you'd recommend?
Keith, Sorry to be so long in responding. I have three suggestions for urban photography in Linden: 1) A study of the stone storefront facades on Hudson. It's a theme running down the street, and though many buildings are dilapidated, the stone has endured and speaks of a more prosperous time. 2) A study of Linden's magnificent, century-old oaks. The single ones I call "sentinels." Two across the street from each other I call "gateways." three in a line I call a "row." There are also "forests," where many are gathered together, as at the northwest corner of Linden Park. 3) A study of the old farm houses here and there in Linden. Brick structures with slate roofs, quite out of place in this sea of cape cods.
