You might be interested to know that an important property rights battle took place about 200 m north of Joseph-Beth.
The city of Norwood used eminent domain to take several properties and have developers turn it into offices and shops. Several owners fought it and won in court. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwood,_Ohio#Eminent_domain
I don’t know what happened afterwards, but the development is going full steam (visible from I-71 and very obvious on google maps).
And the crazy part is, Norwood is loaded with vacant commercial real estate, and Rookwood looks like upscale retail in a depressed blue-collar town. I’m sure they have a plan for how that’s going to work out.
Yeah, and they’re bulldozing a bunch of stuff near my job in Oakley for yet another big outdoor mall / cinema / food mecca. Yay, I guess. Still sad Jungle Jim’s didn’t go in there as planned.
Hi, Cory, Been following your work for years. Congrats on the making the NYT best sellers list. Homeland was a great read…
Town to town, up and down the dial.
Damn! In my own backyard, and I’m out of town. I hope Cincy treats you well!
Help, I’ve never been to a book signing and I don’t know how they work
Cory, thanks for enlightening Cincinnati! The talk and signing was great.
