Cincinnati, United States

Cincinnati, Ohio is often labeled conservative, filled with the wealthy, people of both old and new money, with its artsy/liberal neighborhoods tolerably placed. The ritzy, safe neighborhoods are butted up against the underprivileged ones. Police divisions follow particular agendas, the busiest one being District 5 near downtown. The public school system is experiencing a decline in its trustworthy reputation, and landing a job has become nearly impossible.

Winters can be tactless and unforgiving with wind tunnels built unintentionally throughout the city. It's the niches and self-powered businesses that drive the city - but no one would recognize that.

Findlay Market, privately owned restaurants and bakeries (The Quarter Bistro, Arthur's, Zip's Cafe, Mecklenberg Gardens, Servati's, etc...) - those create stability.

If you go...

- The Comet in Northside

- Anywhere in Northside

- The Village of Mariemont

- The world in a bubble on Ludlow Avenue in Clifton

- Mt. Adams (Teak, bars galore)

- Mt. Lookout (Dancing Wasabi

- Hyde Park/Kenwood for high-end boutiques and retailers

If you want to live here, the young professionals should look into Oakley, Hyde Park, Northside, Madison Place and Norwood. If you have a bit more to spend, try the new Gateway Quarter as it replaces the historical Over the Rhine(as much as I hate gentrification).

Families trend to flock toward Anderson Township, Mariemont, Terrace Park, Loveland, and Mason (but it's a bit out of the city limits).
