Spring in Our Steps

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

Peete Alley

Peete Alley is one of two spurs of Peete Street, the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. A cobblestone paved connection between Peete Street and Vine Street, Peete Alley is lined with overgrown, vacant lots on Mulberry Street, while vacant buildings abut it on the other side from Vine Street. Only seven structures remain on Peete Street, between the alley and Frintz Street to the southeast.

The project site includes two hillside staircases. The Rice Street Steps connect Peete Street, near its terminus at the alley, to Mulberry Street. The Peete Street Steps are the second of the aforementioned spurs, extending down the hill to the intersection of East Clifton Avenue at Vine Street.

Peete Alley is located in a high-profile corridor, immediately visible as drivers and pedestrians travel down Vine Street Hill to the basin. What was once a deplorable dump site is now a pathway shining with history. We envision the area to be a neighborhood sanctuary with park-like qualities.

    Thank you for posting. Peete St is significant in my ancestry. Reclaming an alley
    for present day use is a beginning. Hope progress continues
