Brill. I used to reverse commute two hours one way to get to Connecticut when I lived in Queens. At times I used my boss' work van and at times I took the train. You try to label me an urbanist, but I really don't know what that is. I have never gone to bat as someone promoting green living, here or elsewhere.

Save your goofy rants for someone else, and get back to helping the OP. Or can you get past your own opinion long enough to actually do that and respect what they want?

I just don't think it's necessary to insult the OP's intelligence by assuming they don't know what they are getting in to and coming to their aid to talk them into something they didn't ask for. Just tell them what they want to know and move on.

Agreed. Do people actually go into threads about Mason and tell them how they should reduce their carbon footprint by moving to a walkable area instead? If so, I haven't seen it.

If I were working in Oxford, I wouldn't live in Cincinnati. But that's me, not OP.

Fine, but when you recommend those condos in the City, give them an honest appraisal of what the commute time to Oxford will be. I am only trying to warn them it can be far longer than the mileage alone suggests. They may feel it is hunkydory and that is just fine, but after a few times in a traffic jam on I-275 or I-75 in between they may decide sleepy Oxford was not that bad afterall.

I will not. They didn't ask for that and I am assuming they are intelligent enough to know.

Because we can't assume someone hired by Miami University, with a salary big enough to afford a condo in the city, understands that cities generate traffic. Gotcha.

Thanks everyone!

A few additional info.

- I am aware of the commute but thanks for pointing that out
- I am familiar with cincinnati but i have not fully explored the neighborhoods. Like every other city, I am sure there are pockets of town with different themes like yeppie, hippie, young, family, etc. I am at the intersection: yeppie (in that I am career minded), hippie (in that i am utterly liberal), young (in that i am single male - just hit 30s). Ideally, I want to be in that sort of neighborhood. I have been to Melts on the Northside and I drove around that area but I saw no modern condo/townhouse except one nice rental complex. But the people in the area (while I was there) seem really nice. I liked the atmosphere a lot!

Also, I googled for neighborhood maps of cincinnati. This is the best I could get but I could not find some of the places mentioned above.

Again, Prospect Hill or OTR. Housing can be tough to find as there is only a 4% vacancy rate in OTR at the moment. Prospect Hill is a tight knit neighborhood. And if you want to get to know the neighborhood goto Milton's when you are in town.
