Ok, so I recently moved to downtown Cincinnati, but now I need to move again.

I actually really like living downtown. My problem is getting the ~75lbs of equipment I use for my job to my car and back every day. It's not working.

I need a place with it's own garage (so I can just leave my equipment in my car without worrying as much about it being stolen), and that accepts pets. I like being able to walk to things in the neighborhood too. I still need to be central/close to downtown. I'm thinking Bellevue/Newport or Clifton.

A friend of mine said they know of a place, it's in Clifton near Ohio/McMillan Ave. But I've heard mixed reviews about the safety of that area?? Also not sure I'm crazy about living amongst a lot of students again, I just moved away from that.

Thanks for any suggestions/advice.

On the north side of the river I'd set my sights slightly westward or northwestward from Ohio/McMillan if I were you. See what's on the market in Fairview Hts (south of McMillan, west of Clifton Ave) or in the Clifton gaslight district (north of Ludlow Ave.) Between those areas, there could also be something suitable along Riddle Rd - it's much less "student ghetto" farther out from Clifton Ave, with some garaged houses. Other possibilities around there: a new condo complex (maybe w/some rentals) is now open on Cloister St, off Ruther Ave which runs one-way north from where Jefferson bends to become Ludlow and vice-versa; also, the Stetson Village "community" at Eden and MLK Dr. Additional East-side neighborhoods close in to town yet with off-street parking include Columbia/Tusculum, East Walnut Hills, and Mt Lookout. The latter section has an "executive" image, but there's actually a lot of good affordable housing along and south of Linwood Ave. Go via Delta and Columbia Pkwy and you're downtown in a heartbeat.

"South of the Border," don't rule out Covington. Redevelopment is roaring along there, not only along and near the river. Winston Woods comes to mind immediately as worth looking into. Bromley and Dayton can also boast proximity to downtown without - yet - quite the high prices of hot hot hot Newport and Bellevue.

To round out the list I'll throw in East Price Hill. While it's seen better days to be sure, without much digging you'd be able to find nice and safe locales. Investigate, particularly, along Maryland and Overlook and Elberon Ave's. There are some "recent" (post-1960's) developments at the end towards the river. Either the 8th St Viaduct or River Rd can take you door-to-door from work to home in minutes.
