Re-read this after ehBeth's mention... wow.
Really interesting to read back over things that were Greek to me at the time and are HOME now. (For example, Hastings middle school was mentioned in passing and I reflexively frowned because they were middle school soccer arch enemies.)
12 years here in July. A DOZEN! I've never been in one house longer in my life, and one more year will tie the longest I've ever been in a single city. (I "grew up" in Minneapolis but that was ~ age 5 to ~ age 18.)
A few things that were very true at the time have changed since then; Arena district has become much larger and more developed, with Huntington Park (Columbus Clippers stadium) and more. The Scioto Mile (park development along the river downtown) has happened since then, and Audubon Park (I think -- definitely improvements). Bicentennial park downtown is new. Lots of progress with bike routes. Franklinton is gradually gentrifying, though it's still "the Bottoms" in a lot of ways. 400 W Rich is a really cool place, with a fun farmer's market.
