Just because they say they will tolerate a 30 minute commute doesn't mean they need one. If you are going to work near or in Blue Ash, then live there or close by. You people who are always talking about walkable neighborhoods, the same goes with your commute. The shorter the better. And if you have a dog, you are much more likely to find an affordable house in Deer Park with a fenced yard, or any yard, than anywhere else closer in to the city. Yes I do listen to what the posters say they desire, and that is why I recommend Deer Park or maybe Dillonvale. Live close to work and enjoy your free time. Especially enjoy your time at Kenwood Town Center figuring our how to spent the money you are making from your new job.

Only the OP can tell us for sure if your reasoning is valid, but based on the picture they paint of their wishes it sounds like Deer Park and Dillonvale (I don't even know where that is!) would be too isolated and boring for them.

I think shopping malls, like the one out in Kenwood, are boring. In fact, I quit going to shopping malls over a decade ago. Heck the OP could live downtown and still make the trek to Blue Ash in around 1/2 hour. In my opinion, the closer to downtown/uptown the better.

Clifton was an excellent recommendation. I would also say give Mount Adams a look, as well as Northside, CUF, OTR, CBD, and Prospect Hill. Blue Ash is an easy ride from any of them, and doing the reverse commute is not as bad as coming into the city from the burbs.

Save the lecture. I would leave the tristate before living in ANY of the further out suburbs around Cincinnati. I like where I live, and especially that I can walk to damn near everything I do, if I so choose. Or I can spring a little dough for cab fare, or take the bus. And I guarantee you there is nothing boring about where I live. There is so much to do, that my family and I have to pick and choose the best option.

Not everyone wants your lifestyle, Brill. I don't know why you can't leave well enough alone, but have to come charging in on us all the time. Breathe easy and relax.

I agree w/ninja, "square peg, round hole". Her demographic appears to be "young professional, relo paid by hiring company." As such, why should she need to "make do" in neighborhoods best characterized as "no identity"? Blue Ash company hires young professional. Young professional simply decides if she likes young professional complex in Blue Ash/Montgomery (nearby office), or Kenwood (if she likes nice malls), Deerfield (if she likes country), or Hyde Park (if she likes faster track). If company offer too low to afford those appropriate locations, then that's another matter.

I did not see any specifics requesting a vibrant and urban neighborhood. What I did see was safe surroundings, have a dog, and somewhat close to the City. The neighborhoods I recommended, Deer Park and Dillonvalle both qualify for that. If they are too boring then just stay home near work in either Blue Ash or the adjacent Montgomery or a little south in Kenwood Town Center and surrounds. If that is too tame then just jump on I-71 and head south to such as Mt Adams. But the fact is you will only go there infequently, as the hop-hop wears thin quickly.

In my judgment, your reading of OP's post is tone deaf. You seem unable to put yourself in their shoes and view the various options from their perspective.

Again, only OP can be the ultimate judge of that. But I've seen you do it before and have my suspicions confirmed.

Simple. Human nature basicaly likes a mild and tolerant environment. That is what you find in Deer Park and Dillonvale, particularly if you find a property where that dog can feel at home. So now you are happy since the dog is happy and you have a short commute to work. Is there more you want in life? If so then venture into the City. Otherwise just be content with your mundane suburban lifestyle enjoying that dog.

We had dogs for about 30 years when our kids were growing up. They were great. Now we have had cats for about the last 20 years. They are different but also great. Our current one, Zoey, comes up about 6:00 AM in the morning, jumps up, and lays on me. She will stay there until I get up, go downstairs, and get her a small can of wet food. If the wife gets up earlier and feeds her she is content with that too. But she will still come back upstairs and jump on me until I get up. Pets are great in our lives and great to have around.

Just find an environment where you and the dog can coexist. It will make your transition to Cincinnati so much easier.
