Cincinnati subway book signing this weekend at Neon’s

UrbanCincy’s transportation writer, photographer and videographer Jake Mecklenborg has recently had his book documenting the complete history of Cincinnati’s notorious incomplete subway published. The book dives into the details of the politics, economics, and structural elements of the never completed rapid transit system, and it discusses what might be in store for Cincinnati’s transit future.

Those interested Cincinnati’s Incomplete Subway: The Complete History can join Mecklenborg at Neon’s Unplugged (map) this Saturday, November 27 at 6pm. He will reportedly give a brief presentation on the book and his findings, then open up the discussion for questions and answeres from the audience.

The book retails for $20 and will be available for purchase at this event. Mecklenborg will also be available to personally sign copies of the book for those in attendance buying it for themselves, or someone else as a gift this holiday season.  The event at Neon’s is free and open to the public.
