I am toying with the idea of moving to Cincy in the next 6 months to a year. I am a single female with no kids currently living in Dayton. What kind of customer service opportunities are there in Cincy? Areas to live in? Im sure I couldnt afford anything more that $400/ month in rent. Crime isnt that big a deal to me, as I do live in the bad part of Dayton. Any info possible would be great.
Thanks!

Hey Ashley you might want to try the Silverton Deer park area. It's close to employers in Norwood and Kenwood. They are pretty safe area's. Rent is $400-$500 in the area for a one bedroom.

If you are single and have no kids, you could try the area around uc or northside. It would be a much better place than deer park or silverton to meet people your age.

Default Apts are cheap here so be choosy...

Checkout apartment ads in CraigsList and prepare to do a lot of drive-arounds as many people here just advertise rentals in the window of the apartments. I happen to think the best way to find a good, cheap place is to drive up and down sidestreets with a cell phone in hand. Also consider posting a self profile on CraigsList and let people contact you via email.

Areas to definitely check out: (if you're single & childless)

Hyde Park
* Madison Road just starting northward from Dana/Observatory (Dana Exit (off 71) becomes Observatory at Madison). Tons of apartments in all price ranges. Very convenient location. If you work in the burbs, you benefit from a reverse commute. If you work in the city, you can pretty much be anywhere in Cincinnati within 10 minutes.
* Check out the neighborhoods along Delta and Linwood Ave's. The area might look pricey but the apartments in between the mansions can be quite affordable.

East Walnut Hills:
* Next to Hyde Park / Downtown. Quiet area but rather cheap being next door to all the happenin' neighborhoods like Hyde Park / Oakley / Mt Adams thus making EWH very convenient and well worth checking out.
* Checkout East McMillan EAST of Victory Parkway and the surrounding sidestreets.
* Victory Parkway SOUTH of East McMillan and the surrounding sidestreets.

Northside & Clifton:
* Very crunchy / artsy / punkish /edgy types.
* Northside can get sketchy in some areas.

Areas to be weary of:
* Pretty much anything west of I-75 (except Northside). There are some very nice areas west of 75, but the rentals are going ghetto pretty rapidly.
* Norwood, Avondale, Walnut Hills (not to be confused with East Walnut Hills).

Cincinnati can go from nice & safe to "lock-n-load central" within 2 blocks or less so watch for the signs of this...

There are several apartment houses on Beechmont Ave. in Mt. Washington that are advertising apartments for $400-450 with heat included. They are not new places, nor are they fancy. However, they are well situated and relatively inexpensive.

Sounds like Northside is right up your alley.
It's a hip, up-and-coming neighborhood.

LOL I probably should have looked at that. Who knows, maybe she's still looking?
