Incline Ridge Apartments Are Ready To Rent!

Incline-Ridge 2

Gaslight Property is excited about the Incline Ridge Apartments now available for rent. These two-bedroom apartments are located at 2361 – 2377 Maryland Avenue in the historic Incline District in East Price Hill. The location is fabulous – a hop, skip, and a jump from downtown – and it just got better. Recently construction wrapped up on Route 50, and the distance to downtown is a mere two miles. You can drive to and from work downtown in under five minutes, which means enjoying all the benefits of downtown without having to deal with the hassles and expense of parking if you lived there (parking is free at the Incline Ridge), plus (unlike downtown) the rent’s quite modest (695 – 795 a month).

These two-bedroom apartments brand new, stylish, stainless appliances, and they feature long balconies — long enough to link the master bedroom and the living room — and those balconies offer a fabulous view. In fact, the view competes with any in Price Hill or for that matter the whole city. Incline Ridge Apartments are also close the Incline Public House and other spots in Price Hill that are themselves destination spots.

If you have any interest in finding out more about these or any of the other apartments Gaslight Property has to offer, call us at 513.861.6000. Our agents would love to tell you more about these apartments!

Really it’s “the best of both worlds,” as the apartments are on a peaceful and quiet street on the edge of East Price Hill at the same time that they’re close to downtown and Northern Kentucky.

Buy Tickets Now for the Clifton House Tour on May 10

Clifton House Tour

 

Every third year on Mother’s Day the Clifton House Tour pays homage to the beautiful historic homes that are part of the reason Clifton has so much character. This year on Sunday, May 10 there will be homes from the 1800s to 1970 highlighting several different styles, including mid-20th century modern, Italianate, and early Shingle Style.

Tickets for the event are already on sale and can be purchased in advance at the following Clifton merchants: Ace Hardware, Hansa Guild, Ludlow Wines, and Skyline Chili. You can also buy tickets online at www.cliftoncommunity.org. They’re $18 in advance and will be $22 on the day of the tour. Day-of tickets can be purchased at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center on Clifton Avenue and at Clifton Plaza on Ludlow Avenue.

And this is an event for the whole community. Local businesses throughout Clifton will be open during the tour to provide food, refreshment, and shopping for those looking to extend the day. A free shuttle will escort visitors from two locations: Clifton Cultural Arts Center at 3711 Clifton Ave. and Clifton Plaza at 333 Ludlow Ave.

Along with being a lot of fun, the Clifton House Tour is for a good cause. The tour proceeds are reinvested in the community through the various projects of Clifton Town Meeting (CTM), which include the Clifton Chronicle, and events such as the Memorial Day Parade and Picnic, Lantern Walk, CliftonFest and carriage rides for Holidays on Ludlow.

Northside Record Fair on April 25

Northside Record Fair picture for 2015

On April 25 the Northside Record Fair will host another record show in Northside. The address is 4222 Hamilton Avenue (the Northside Presbyterian Church). Admission is five dollars from 11am to 4pm while the early birds (10am) pay ten bucks.

Before the Northside Record Fair started hosting record shows, it always seemed like the other big cities in Ohio had thriving record shows while Cincinnati’s was an embarrassment. The Northside Record Fair has been such a success that they quickly decided to start hosting it twice a year. As someone who loved records long before I ever attended any shows, I can say why, if they’re done right, they’re a great way to shop for vinyl. The reasons include (but are not limited to):

  • A Healthy Selection of the Classics. Record stores can’t stock enough Beatles, Stones, Floyd, Talking Heads, REM, Zeppelin, and they tend to keep running out of those essentials. But with each vendor a mini-record store, you see a lot more of the major artists at the shows.
  • Obscure Records. Personally, my favorite thing about record shows is the plethora of obscure records that I’ve never heard of before and have never seen in person.
  • 45s. Because of space limitations, record stores tend to stock the records that are most likely to fly off the shelves the fastest and don’t bother stocking 45s. There are always lots of 45s at the Northside Record Fair.
  • You Can Cut A Deal. Record stores don’t cut you any bargains, but it’s common practice at record shows for dealers to shave off a few dollars when you buy more than one record.
  • Rubbing Shoulders. I love record stores, but the camaraderie that exists on at shows, where the crowd is thicker and the buzz is on, is that much stronger. I always find it a crash course in music and records, and my teachers are people who’ve delved much more deeply into musicians and genres than I have. It kind of deflates my ego when the savants are so much younger than I am, but I still attend class and take note diligently.

A Thousand Foot Slide on Jefferson Avenue!

SLIDE THE CITY

THIS EVENT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS – NOW WORD YET ON THE NEW DATE

There will be a 1000 foot slip and slide on Jefferson Ave in Clifton  on Saturday June 20, 2015. That may sound a long ways off, but tickets are already on sale, and “early bird registration” – code words for “the cheapest tickets” – ends this Friday, April 10. Don’t worry, though: if you miss that deadline, you can still buy tickets; they’ll just cost you a few bucks more.

Per the Cincinnati Business Courier, “Sliders can choose between a one-time sliding package that includes a drawstring bag, tattoo and mouth guard for $20 during the regular registration period; a pass to slide three times during the day along with an inflatable tube, mouth guard and drawstring bag for $35, and an unlimited sliding pass with a mouth guard, tattoo, T-shirt, tube, drawstring bag and hat for $60.”

Here’s the webpage for this Slide The City event; it includes the link for purchasing tickets: LINK TO SLIDE CITY

And here’s a video of people sliding down the thousand foot slide. Looks like fun, doesn’t it?
