German Village: Picturesque enclave
A preservation effort begun in the 1960s restored this 2-mile-long wedge of brick alleys and 19th-century cottages, making it one of the country's largest privately funded historic districts. Businesses thrive amid tidy homes, flowers bloom in pocket gardens, and cars squeeze past each other on narrow streets. Unlike Short North, which has a well-defined business district, German Village begs for aimless wandering.
