Columbus Neighborhoods:South Side-Thurs., Sept. 19 at 9p on WOSU

The historic neighborhood, known as South Side was once an industrial powerhouse, shaped by the thousands of people who moved there to work its furnaces and factories. From Hungarians immigrants to Appalachian migrants, they forged a thriving community that still pays homage to its heritage of steel and glass. South Side was also Columbus’ early bustling Jewish neighborhood. See how churches and other institutions have adjusted to changing times and the efforts of long-time residents to improve their beloved neighborhood.  It’s the newest edition to our COLUMBUS NEIGHBORHOODS series.
