Despite loss, Cards fans praise the Queen City

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

For years we've heard what Tri-State natives think about the improvements downtown and the addition of The Banks. 

With tons of St. Louis Cardinals fans in town for a 4-game series against the Reds,  fans of our NL Central rival had some nice things to say about the Queen City, too.

"Cincinnati's good. River is nice, looks like they have cleaned up the riverfront quite a bit since the last time I've been here and everybody's nice," said Cardinals fan Ben Kahle.

"Everybody was very pleasant, it was very clean here and we didn't have any issues," added another Cards fan.

Most Cardinals fans said they were impressed with The Banks project. St. Louis, located about 350 miles slightly southwest of Cincinnati, is in the process of building Ballpark Village, which will house restaurants, bars and residential buildings - similar to The Banks.

"It's very similar, but downtown here, it feels more lively. We were at the Holy Grail a couple nights ago after one of the games." said Cards fan Douglas Abram, who used to live in St. Louis and recently moved to Cincinnati. "There is a lot of places like this park that I didn't know anything about until five second ago. There is a lot of things to do down here, and I'm pretty excited about it."

While Cardinals fans liked what Cincinnati has to offer, their Labor Day was a little spoiled after the Reds finished 7-2 over St. Louis in the series opener.
