High-profile press has drawn people to the Short North from all over the country. Now visitors will be able to pinpoint the district's many amenities once they arrive.

High-profile press has drawn people to the Short North from all over the country. Now visitors will be able to pinpoint the district's many amenities once they arrive.

Seven information kiosks have been installed between Goodale Street and Fifth Avenue, and six others will be set up by September.

"We want to make sure they know all the awesome things we have to offer," said Sylvia Totzke, visitor relations coordinator for the Short North Business Association.

Similar to way-finders Downtown, each info station bears a color-coded map of bars, shops, restaurants and parks, as well as stories about local art history. So along with directions to Bar 23 or Tigertree, guests can learn more about the start of Gallery Hop or the career of Columbus legend George Bellows.

The kiosks were implemented by the SNBA, Short North Special Improvement District, City of Columbus and Columbus Foundation.
