Hi, I'm from NY and am looking to relocate near family in Cincinnati. There is a very cute house on Ingleside Ave. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me a little about what the area is like there. I hear bad things about Walnut hills from my family, but they don't drive around that area too often. Will I have to worry about being mugged? What about common b/e? Any input will help!!!

Thanks!!

Ingleside is in the best part of Walnut Hills - East Walnut Hills. I would have relocated my family to that pocket without hesitation if I could afford it. E. Walnut Hills folks have NO tolerance for crime in their neighborhood and they know their neighbors well. Still, the neighborhood's proximity to less affluent neighborhoods mean that you will be occasionally pan-handled and a bike left unlocked in the front yard would likely be stolen.

If you're looking for a generally safe location incredibly close to downtown, but with enough elbow room for a yard and a shed, it doesn't get much better that E Walnut.

If you decide you aren't comfortable there, consider moving a bit farther out to Columbia Tusculum. The prices should be about the same.

That was such a helpful answer and puts my mind at ease. I'll be sure to drive around the area thoroughly. Any more inputs from you fine folks at city data?! Thanks!

You can find the exact crime reports on Ingleside using Cincy Navigator (see link below). Center the map on Ingleside, zoom in, uncover the red "crime" box, click it and pick your date range (eg last year).

Out of curiosity I searched the last 3 months on that street and neighboring streets and found pretty typical stuff for that area. Multiple thefts (people steal your stuff when you arent there), some burglary (they break in and steal your stuff when you arent there), a couple assaults/felonious assaults. On Ingleside itself, only a single crime in 3 months, but it was a bad one, armed robbery. The description says the perp entered the residency, pointed gun at the occupant, said "don't be a hero" and stole a bunch of stuff.

Its all about comfort level. When I was looking to buy a house in Cincinnati I ended up trying to avoid areas that had armed robberies. I succeeded in this but other people may not worry about that.

How did you bring that up? All i'm seeing in the last six months is four people arrested for carrying weapons (likely, a property owner saw someone 'suspicious,' called the cops, cops came, guy had a weapon.)

It was all the way at the bottom of Ingleside (I think it was 2400 block of Ingleside). My search was from july til now. The other crimes were on surrounding streets. Did you click "arrest" or "crimes"? There are always way more crimes than arrests, of course

With the caveat that I'm not intimately familiar with the neighborhood, I'm still going to weigh in on the original question. I don't think Ingleside is the best choice for someone who considers security a major priority. On the other hand, if you assume that an occasional break-in or other property crime is just part of city life, and you're considering the house currently listed for sale on the MLS, it does indeed look quite attractive at least from the photos. One thing I'd try to do if I bought it is try to find a way to make it less of a burglary target than the houses around it. Like a large Doberman chained on the front porch or something ;-)
