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).
