About Danny Korman

Danny Korman is just as likely to ride his bike as he is to walk around Cincinnati. Why not? Car-free most of his life after sending several cars to the junkyard at an early age, he rarely tires of this primal way of getting around his hometown. Danny nurtures his passions while running the general store Park Vine in Over-the-Rhine, which he opened in summer 2007 on Vine Street before moving to Main Street in October 2010. After graduating from the school of planning at the University of Cincinnati in 1991 and studying preservation planning at Pratt Institute Brooklyn, NY in 1997, Danny worked a bunch of different jobs focused on Main Street revitalization, tourism and bicycling advocacy in Ohio, Kentucky, New York and Illinois. Danny is a big architecture buff, urban explorer, nature lover, believer in supporting local economies and steward for the environment and animals. Katie Meyer, a native of Covington's Old Seminary Square neighborhood, has been thinking about the unique culture and challenges facing Covington for a long time. After earning her M.S. in Urban Policy Analysis and Management from the New School in New York City, Katie returned to Kentucky in 2007 to work for Kentucky Housing Corporation as a Performance Analyst. Two years later she was hired on by the City of Covington to run Renaissance Covington, Inc., a non-profit aimed at downtown revitalization. In 2012, Katie, along with partners, opened Covington's art and music bar, Pike Street Lounge. In addition to learning and loving the local music scene, Katie enjoys traveling, bicycling, and urban exploration. Katie lives with her partner Bonnie and two beagles in the Austinburg neighborhood of Covington.
