Radius Five Blocks

In recent years some attention has been given toward the ways of the Old World. Some have criticized President Obama for trying to bring the flavors and philosophies of Europe to America and others have taken offense to the offense. My neighborhood is about as close as I’ve seen to European charm in the New World’s most independent nation. Charming yes. But with all its German flavoring it is all American. Closer examination reveals brick┬ápaving in place of cobblestone, uniform rot iron fencing instead of wooden picket fences, unique Ohio fossil-infused limestone steps stoops and hitching posts and distinctly utilitarian one and a half story┬álate Victorian cottages with slate roofs instead of Medieval half-timbered houses with red tiled roofs. My home is German Village but is one hundred percent American.
