Cincinnati's riverfront lands a feature in New York Times article

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Queen City is getting attention from the City That Never Sleeps.

The New York Times published an article featuring Cincinnati's riverfront in its Wednesday June 6 print edition, it was also published online Tuesday June 5.

The headline reads: 'An Ohio River City Comes Back to Its Shoreline.'

The article highlighted the re-development of downtown and the riverfront, calling it a "hub of civic and economic vitality."

It mentioned places like the Banks, Great American Tower and Smale Riverfront Park.

"It is a good recognition, it is a very powerful and credible recognition and we'll be noticed now by many many people," says Linda Antus, president of Cincinnati USA Regional Tourism Network.

Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory was interviewed for the article and says the reporter spent two days in the city.

"I think he captured the essence of what's going on in Cincinnati...going to the Banks...he came up here to Fountain Square, he went to Over-the-Rhine, he talked to a lot of people and saw the development first hand and I think that's what colored his article," says Mallory.
