Cincinnasty - 8/6/2018
I grew up here, left for the east coast for a decade, and returned. Now, I regret it every f@cking day!

While not quite in as bad of shape as many other cities in this region and it culturally has a number of offerings, what really makes it bad is it is ultra-conservative socially. You've got racists here, but unlike other places here the racists win. It's very cliquish....you've got this Ohio vs Kentucky and Eastside vs Westside dynamic....there is absolutely no unity. Then, your neighborhood choices are either working class/redneck that are aggressive and pick fights or nouveau riche that think they are entitled. There is almost nothing in between. Not to sound arrogant, but I'm told and am considered to be attractive, polished, and a good dresser. Never had problems fitting in and socializing on the east coast, but in this city I am very actively snubbed. Overall, the people are very rude. Sure, they can be rude on the east coast, but at least there I don't Read More

Cincinnati is very affordable...for a reason! - 4/6/2017
Cincinnati has one of the most affordable housing markets in the nation. This is good on some levels. (We bought a three bedroom, three bath house on half an acre with an in-ground swimming pool four years ago, in a very nice neighborhood, for less than $150,000.) The only thing wrong with this house is, it's in Cincinnati!

The air pollution and water pollution are horrible. Plus, the weather here sucks. The humidity is ridiculous. If you have any allergies, they'll become worse when you move here; if you don't have allergies, you're almost certain to develop them. And sunny days are about as rare as good hair days for Donald Trump.

The city should be divided into two cities: West Cincinnati and East Cincinnati. The two areas are COMPLETELY different. West Cincinnati is clannish; the people are generally less-educated and incredibly rude and unfriendly. East Cincinnati is generally more well-to-do, more diverse, more liberal, and MUCH more welcoming. When we Read More

Toxic water, air and male chauvinism - 3/3/2017

Cincinnati is not recommended at all. A city born from slaughterhouses and made toxic by DuPont and many other chemical companies who dumped their poison sludge into the Ohio River, the most toxic waterway in the USA. This town gave me Lymphoma when I was 11 years old, our ground water was toxic with dioxin and PFOA from DuPont Chemical and Fernald. Situated topographically in a deep valley, the toxic air gets stuck and will exacerbate allergies, asthma, cancer, lung problems, and the gloomy grey skies go all year round. I would rate sunny days as below 75 days per year. Grey most of the time thus depression is rampant. An old tired industrial city with absolutely no opportunities for women, most of the corporate world is male dominated. I was sexually harassed at three jobs. Women are stay-at-home mothers in Cincinnati and the divorce rate is very high for a small city. Kids are bored with nary a thing for them to do, summer is 100% humidity and unbearable without AC. Read More

@ the Degree of the BS woman - 6/19/2016
The BS you have a degree in just showed how important you are, NOT. Cincinnati is a wonderful city with wonderful people. Unlike LA, or NY., they are respectful not backward as you claimed. Cincinnati has morals unlike Europe. I have been to Europe many times, France is the worst and smelliest people I have ever encountered. Most European don’t know what a bar of soap is. Maybe 5/3rd bank could not have you around because your BS stinks. Yes, Cincinnati is a family place and not only that, but a little snooty to people with BS degree like you. I was not born in Cincinnati, but I live here and would NOT want to be anywhere else . Cincinnati has the wealth and class however you being trash could not handle it. Sorry you have being rejected by class of men and women but we snooty folks can smell the BS in other Read More

It may be for some people, but it's not for me - 5/5/2015
I've lived in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area for about 20 years now. It's not for me. While there may be a lot of attractions, many of them are in relatively unsafe neighborhoods. The East side of Cincinnati, the West side of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are all very, very different from one another. I grew up on the East side of Cincinnati and I found that the people are very concerned with keeping up appearances. I have found that outsiders just don't fit in on the West side of town. Everyone there was born and raised there with no intentions of leaving. I have been happiest in Northern Kentucky because it has a more reasonable cost of living, however, the jobs are a little scarce. I had to work over in Cincinnati. While the cost of living is lower than other places, the jobs just don't pay that well and the employers in the area are generally not concerned with employee well being. I spent five years working for Fifth Third, which is one of biggest players in the area Read More

Living in Cincinnati, OH (Hyde Park Neighborhood) - 4/7/2015
Relocated to Cincinnati in 2014. Prior to the move, we used Sperlings Best Places web site to give us an overview of the city (crime, climate, etc) and what to expect with the "cost of living" which was very important to know. It was a great resource. Moved into the Hyde Park neighborhood, which has lovely historic homes. Numerous clubs, cultural events and awesome restaurants in the neighborhood. Close to downtown activities. Just a FYI: great diverse restaurant selection; not a strong ethnic diversity in neighborhood; we're not runners, but appears to be numerous avid daily runners; the cost of housing in Hyde Park is substantially more expensive, than other neighborhoods in Cincinnati. The downtown area appears to be refurbishing historic buildings and lofts, brownstones and new restaurants are every where, very cool. Washington Park downtown host numerous free exercise activities. If you're a beer lover, there are numerous breweries to visit. Some of the new downtown restaurants Read More

Wonderful place to reside & start a family! - 7/1/2014
I've lived in Cincinnati my entire life & absolutely adore it here. Cincinnati has so many things to offer, if you get out & look for it. There is tons of activities you can do around here such as the Cincinnati Zoo, attending a Reds or Bengals game, Newport Aquarium, Kings Island, tons of concerts, & many amazing parks. The dining here awesome. Cincinnati has a bunch of locally famous restaurants such as Skyline, Goldstar, Larose's, Montgomery Inn, ect. However many out of state residents aren't found of it, because well their not use to these types of foods & how they are prepared. Cincy is also filled with lots of German restaurants, festivals, activities & heritage. While reading other comments, I've seen how Cincy is full of drugs, prostitution, crime, violence, & you should not go out after dark if you'd like to remain safe. I go around Cincinnati (especially downtown) all the time during day & night time. I've personally never had a problem, nor has anyone I've known. Yes, it's Read More

I go around Cincinnati (especially downtown) all the time during day & night time. I've personally never had a problem. Yes, it's dangerous to be out at night, but where isn't it? The city is usually heavily patrolled with police downtown. Yes, there is crime & such, however name a city today that doesn't have any crime in it. Downtown is mostly business like, so if you're interested in living here there is numerous towns located minutes away that more Read More
