Northern Kentucky's largest city, Covington
's growth is epitomized by the 22-story Ascent at Roebling's Bridge.
The revitalized downtown boasts an arts district, with a variety of artists' studios and galleries. On Madison Avenue and Pike Street, the city created the Covington Arts and Technology Zone (CATZ)
. A growing entertainment district along the redeveloped riverfront area complements the older MainStrasse
section, which dates back to the mid-1800s. The scenic 704-acre Devou Park
, with its beautiful view of Cincinnati's skyline, is just one of Covington's 20 city parks.
Covington is also home to the Carnegie Arts Center and Behringer-Crawford Museum, two of the city's cultural gems. The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption
, which is on the National Historic Register, is a stunning example of the city's architecture. Another example of the city's rich architectural heritage is the Licking Riverside National Register District
, an intact grouping of residential buildings — including large mansions, row houses, double houses and apartment buildings ranging from the mid-19th to the early 20th century. Located at the juncture of the Licking and Ohio rivers, the Licking Riverside neighborhood is the oldest residential section of the City and will be a critical link in the ambitious Licking River Greenway and Trails project
