When the Cincinnati Business Courier listed 100 landmarks in Greater Cincinnati upon which readers could vote into a final top 25, Covington scored five and a half entries (the half was the Cincinnati/NKY international airport which is in Hebron but is abbreviated CVG for Covington). Overall, the Northern Kentucky three-county area was awarded twelve spots. To view the original article click here: Covington Places Make Top 100.
Today the Business Courier released its top 25 in alphabetical order (the actual rankings will be revealed at a gala ceremony next month) and only two NKY locations made the cut: the Roebling Bridge in Covington and the Purple People Bridge in Newport. Out of twelve great options, the voters only selected two NKY landmarks, and those landmarks both touch Cincinnati. I smell voter fraud. And scandal!
Can't argue with many of the top 25 though, as they are all landmarks (although, the Serpentine Wall and Sawyer Point each take up a spot when they are pretty much the same thing, aren't they?). But come on, no Basilica? No Ascent? No Devou Park overlook? Sounds like we need to get a group of Covingtonians together to crash the gala next month. Who's in?

  1. I think the people who vote on these things consider places like Rookwood Shopping Center, the wonderful cuisine of Skyline Chili, and all the Market Place Kroger's to be the greatest assets.
