Hello, campers... how's it hangin'?

 

I watched the Reds' feed of the 2nd game, just to see what their announcers are like... they're actually pretty good... 

 
Among other things, I learned that the the B&O built not just one but *two* huge warehouse buildings... which means the OPACY Warehouse has a twin... in Cincinnati... which was the other end of the B&O line...  
 
If you need a big effing warehouse at one end, I guess it's not surprising that you might need one just like it at the other end too.   And it's still there: http://www.longworth...om/gallery.html...
 
One design built in two places... same brickwork details and everything... and the Cincinnati one is even longer: 1277' vs 1116'... which I guess is one reason why they always say the OPACY Warehouse is the longest building "on the East Coast"... 
 
Who knew?  Not me...  
 
With all the attention OPACY received, you'd think somebody would've mentioned it before now...

Why so brief?

And nice to see Cincinnati also did a great job of repurposing a historic old building.

Very cool.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

That's one of those "no shit, why didn't I think of that before?" moments. Pretty cool. Totally should've put the stadium there, it's only ~4 minutes from Great American Ballpark (and even closer to Paul Brown Stadium)

Thinking back to that location on the west of I71/75, most of that area is just industrial. (probably even shorter than 4 minutes...) The GABP and PBS area has really been developed over the last 5 years and has a great nightlife scene now with many restaurants. 

 

Really nice place to pregame or tailgate for both Reds or Bengals.

Nice find - wow that's pretty cool! As you said, it's kind of shocking that nobody ever mentioned it before given how prominent the Warehouse is at Oriole Park.
