A Day in the Life of a Block by Block Ambassador

We’re excited to share a new video, A Day in the Life of a Block by Block Ambassador.

Filmed on a beautiful fall day, we attached a GoPro to one of our ambassadors as he went about his normal day-to-day duties in Downtown Cincinnati.

Condensed down to just a couple minutes, the end result is a great representation of the daily life of all of our ambassadors, as they walk their rounds and keep residents and visitors safe and the streets clean along the way.

Watch below to experience a day in the life of a Block by Block ambassador for yourself.
