COVINGTON (513 alt., 65,252 pop.), second largest city in Kentucky, lies on a flood plain of the Ohio River at the foot of suburban hills that reach back to a high plain of the Bluegrass. Highways from Louisville and the hills of central Kentucky sweep rather suddenly into position for a fine view of the city. To the east the Licking River separates old Covington residences from Newport; to the west the Ohio River bends away past scattered suburbs and the long Cincinnati waterfront; and to the north most of Covington's business houses, factories, churches, parks, and homes are clustered against a, magnificent backdrop, where five bridges cross the Ohio to Cincinnati on the opposite side of the river.
In this setting Covington looks like a city on the Rhine. The impression is heightened by the spires of many churches -- Covington has more than threescore -- that taper up from among compact business.
