I'm hoping to locate some apartment possibilities in the vicinity of the Cincinnati Museum Center and Union Station.

I believe these would be the West End, Queensgate, and Over-the-Rhine neighborhoods?

Any leads would be appreciated, including general comments about the neighborhoods.

Thanks!

Yes, look up your local history, Union Terminal/Station was one of the premier railroad terminals in the country when it was built. I have no problem with some one referencing it as a station, as terminal/station to me is interchangeable.

First of all there is only one Union Terminal in all of USA and MANY Union Stations, which Union Terminal is not called that.

You may want to establish a differential. But as I said, a terminal and a station are interchangeable. Please identify the difference.

stasia what kind of price range are you looking at? All the area's you mentioned seemed to be on the low end and crime is a bit higher in those area's as well. There is the new Banks along the riverfront. It's almost 100% filled though. And they are around the $1000 range. I do think they did set aside some low income units as well.

It would also help us to know how far you're willing to travel from your home to the Museum Center. And specifically whether it's very important to you to be in a low-crime neighborhood, whether you would be coming and going from home a lot at night, etc.

Sorry for the childish chatter on your thread about the name of the facility. We all knew exactly what you were talking about. But do need more information if we're to be very helpful.

This might be a possibility for you: Cincinnati Ohio Apartments - Home - City West Apartments

I am looking into a job at the Museum Center and was hoping to find an apartment within a 15-minute commute during rush hour - but I may have to be flexible as I've found since posting this thread that the neighborhoods near the Museum Center/Union Station/Terminal are less than ideal.

A short commute time is high on my list - but I'd also like an apartment that is in a lower-crime area and clean, well taken care of. My ceiling is $1000/month for rent, though I can go higher if certain utilities are included.

Thanks for the input.

What are the commutes like from the Northside and Mt. Adams/Eden Park areas?

Is the Heights mostly student housing (which I'd like to avoid, unless there's a gem hidden there)?

Mt. Auburn? Walnut Hills?

Commutes from either the Eden Park area (either the Walnut Hills or the Mt Adams side) would be maybe 10 minutes. An easy drop down into OTR, and then across town to the Museum Center. Likewise from Northside, just coming from the other direction.

If you look at Walnut Hills, streets like Sinton, Fulton, St. James, Alpine, Park are very quiet and safe and enjoy proximity to the Park and will probably be cheaper than what you find on the Mt Adams side of the park.

On this board you will also find advocates for Mt. Auburn/Prospect Hill. In CUF, yes, you will find a lot of student housing in that area...not exclusively, but a lot of it.
