There aren't that many college students in Clifton, really. It's more expensive than CUF, so they are mostly up on top of the hill. Anyway, students might be low-income, but I exclude them because they are not part of a vulnerable social class. Fairfield has many families which are part of vulnerable social classes, which makes them systematically more susceptible to the allure of criminal behavior. And teenagers, well, they are susceptible to peer pressure and criminal behavior more than other age groups, even ones with wealthier parents are more susceptible to acting like thugs than younger or older people.

Did you ever go to Forest Fair Mall when it was in decline? The Time Out arcade was a hangout for kids from the area. They gave the mall cops all they could handle.

I've seen a number of articles about gang activity in Fairfield, including MS-13 activity. Never heard of gangsters in Clifton.

I would agree about Mt. Airy, Colerain, and Mt. Healthy. Also North College Hill, College Hill, Northside, and a number of other places I wasn't talking about.

There are some apartments down near Reading, they are actually perhaps in Amberley on the fringe of the old Ridgewood Golf Club, which I believe has been closed for some time. They could be convenient to your job in Fairfield but also much closer to activity in the City.
My family is from Mt. Healthy, Ohio it just a small town that all
