Retail in the Rhine

A walking tour to holiday shopping in Over-the-Rhine

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Although I grew up in Cincinnati and graduated from Oak Hills High School, I haven't spent a full holiday shopping season here since around 2006, when I spent a few post-college months living with my parents. I gave a half-hearted attempt at sorting out Cincinnati's arts/entertainment/shopping scene, but when I heard Over-the-Rhine was supposed to be the new epicenter of all things happening and hip, I just wasn't buying it. Boy, was I wrong. "It's pretty amazing, the transformation that's taken place," says Brian Tiffany, president of the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce.  

Everything Old Is New Again in OTR

New Main Street shop Another Part of the Forest stocks hard to find vinyl ... and much more

Like many of the new businesses along Over-the-Rhine's Main Street, it's basically a neighborhood thing. It has a stellar lineage, and it's new and old at the same time. It's Another Part of the Forest, the used record store/Siamese twin of Iris BookCafe, with which it shares a leafy rear courtyard. The store takes its place alongside Everybody's Records, Mole's Record Exchange and Shake It Records as a local purveyor specializing in used vinyl, featuring some 8,000 LPs on display (with some 15,000 more titles in stock).
