Hello

Just curious exactly how most people divide Cincinnati up into sides of town. Seems like it is mostly West vs East, with Mill Creek/ I-75 being the divider? I've also heard the term "Northside" tossed around.

In the 1960s much of my family moved from rural KY to the Lockland/ Carthage area. Would that be considered the West side?

I don't really think of Lockland/Carthage being east OR west. It's basically north central. For me, you don't really get into the west until you get past the rail yards in Queensgate, and then west of Hamilton Avenue. To me, the "east" is anything east of I-71 and south of Deer Park. Everything else is either in the central area of the city, or else the northern suburbs.

What about the Colerain/ Forest Park areas? Is that West or North/ Central?

Among my peers and I've been trying to coin the term "North Cincinnati". I go to school in Toledo and whenever I'm asked about what part of the 513 I'm from, that is what I refer to. Its boundaries are Spring Grove Ave to the south, I-75 to the east, Rt. 127 to the west (Hamilton Ave/Mill Rd.) and the county line to the north.

There was a discussion on my community's (Finneytown) Facebook page about what side of town we were considered, and the consensus was North Central. I'd describe Colerain as being its own side of town or simply Northwest.

I never viewed it as westside / eastside; more like westside / not westside.

the term "northside" on this forum generally refers to an ironically central neighborhood called simply northside. once upon a time it was called north cumminsville, but its name was shortened.

Cincinnati is a classic west versus east division. there is no north - south division because Cincinnati doesn't have a south side.

Technically, Vine street is the dividing line. Streets change names from East X to West X when crossing over Vine, However, when it comes to neighborhoods, 'central' is an option. If someone says they live on the West side, they are typically not talking about Gaslight Clifton or Northside. As you get further north, the distinction fades as well. No one considers Mason eastside or West Chester westside.

Not to be splitting hairs here, but technically West Chester would be considered on the EAST side IF the east/west division extended further north into Butler County. Vine Street basically becomes Springfield Pike after it gets into Hartwell/Wyoming - which is Rt. 4. And West Chester is east of Rt. 4.
