Hello, My wife and I are both Indians (east) and prefer to buy a house inside the city limits.
We are looking to live near Kenwood,OH (no city tax, Indian hill schools). Do you know if this
area is diverse and accepting to other races? We have a infant and prefer to live in the city
and also like to integrate into the community rather than live in segregated areas. Kenwood strikes
as a good place as it has nice burbs like houses and the convenience of the city.

I just wanted to know if I am missing anything as most of the Indians in Cincinnati live in the norther sub-urbs and we prefer to live in the city and like what the city offers (not the tax :|).

Any suggestions or comments? Thanks!

Kenwood itself isn't within the city limits, but there are some pretty decent areas nearby that ARE within the city limits but that depends...

What's the budget you're looking at?

I am looking at around 300k tops. I am sorry I meant near city rather than city limits.

I assume that most of the reason the people you know live North is because perhaps they're P&G'ers working at the Blue Ash (closing) or Mason (expanding) campuses? Even WestChester has a P&G research facility.

I don't know if there's any other reason specifically to live in the Northern burbs. I know that there are some Indian and Asian grocers out in the N. burbs (edge of Sharonville/west chester; mason) - I assume because there's a high enough population density to support. But otherwise don't know of any specific amenities - other than likely close commute (and the suburban lifestyle, if that's what they like)...

I think you will be fine, Indian Hill is much more diverse than it used to be. I have found that Cincinnatians tend to find foreign-born individuals exotic and interesting, making them more eager to take them into the fold rather than exclude them. There is just not that much immigration here so there isn't the "us" versus "them" response you might find in a bigger city. I think here it is more about socioeconomic class than race or skin color. In a 300k neighborhood if you smoke or drive a rusty jalopy or don't mow your grass or hit your kids on the lawn you won't fit in no matter your ethnic heritage. However wearing a sari and (less so) a bindi will make it harder but not impossible to integrate with the moms.
