Spring in Our Steps

Enhancing community connections in Cincinnati, by reclaiming alleys, sidewalks, and steps for the pedestrian.

Shutter Out Alley Photo Walk Series Starts Saturday

I want to tell you about a new alley photo walk series, which we’re beginning in Northside, this Saturday. Two weeks later, we head out to Mt. Auburn for the second alley photo walk of the year.

We will be documenting all of Northside’s illustrious alleys, in order to start an inventory of more than 400 of Cincinnati’s alleyways. Spring in Our Steps will then be able to offer data to the public about each, and can prioritize cleanup and community building opportunities.

We will reconvene at Sidewinder Coffee Tea + Spirits, to upload our photos to one computer. Don’t worry–you will absolutely get credit for your work, if/when we repost photos, per individual approval.

11am to 1pm, Meet at Sidewinder Coffee Tea + Spirits

About C. Huelsman

"Stuck in the middle of this, don't know if I'm gonna make it" summarizes my internal composition at most points along my personal timeline. Sometimes, more than a little skin must be shed, in order to ensure resilience toward life's perils and mediocrity. This is where things get good.

    Data format? Dare I hope for a fully fleshed out system of OSM alleyways? 😉
    I keep finding the damn things just tagged as service roads!

      If it’s anything I can help, we’ll have information ranging from paving type, lane width, curb type, length, and slew of other conditions.

      It’s not over until it’s over!

        How do we know when it’s over?

        I have included the following: “We will reconvene at Sidewinder Coffee Tea + Spirits (on the 9th) and Iris Book Cafe (on the 23rd), to upload our photos to one computer. Don’t worry–you will absolutely get credit for your work, if/when we repost photos, per individual approval.”
