Over-The-Rhine is a historic neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, treasured for its massive collection of nineteenth-century Italianate buildings. It still looks, for the most part, the way most American inner cities looked in the Gilded Age, and for this very reason has been listed on the National Historic Register since 1983. Called "Over The Rhine" by German immigrants who made daily treks over the bridges across the Miami and Erie canal (now Central Parkway), which separated the working class neighborhood from downtown Cincinnati, it was for many years a slum and only fairly recently has begun to see revitalization. It is quite literally filled with colorful historical architecture and architectural details that reflect the past and the mixed prospects of the present.
