On any weekend night, the bars and restaurants in Over-the-Rhine are busy. But the president of the OTR Chamber of Commerce, Emilie Johnson, would like to see the crowds visiting during the day, especially during the upcoming holiday season.
Johnson says most people are familiar with the nightlife along Vine Street, “but what helps to balance and round that all out, is to have additional things." Johnson says that's retail, and service businesses. She says a mix of those and the entertainment businesses are what make a neighborhood strong.
