Am confused little bit cause there is the West Side and the East Side. I live in Evanston, Cincinnati in the East Side, but my question is. Is Roselawn, Bond Hill is part of the west side or east side? I know Mt Heathy, Finneytown, and Forest Park is part of the west side, and Madisonville, Norwood, Deer Park, and Pleasant Ridge, is part of east side. Should it be a North Side though as our region (not Northside Neighborhood). I saw some thread talking about West Side and East Side. What you guys think?

There is not north or south side. just east and west.

West is anything to the left of 75. East anything to right of 75. Roselawn and bond are west. Im in Norwood and its more central since the lateral runs across. ( IMO anyway).

East of Vine Street is the East Side. West of Vine Street is the West Side.

That's true where address numbering is concerned. But, depending on whom you talk to, the "west side" could begin as far to the west as Colerain Ave. It's a state of mind rather than a clear-cut down-the-middle division.
Everything along Reading Rd is east-side, though, on that all can agree.

Its less West Side - East Side and more West Side - not West Side.

This is the first time I ever heard of Roselawn or Bond hill are being called the west side. I lived here 47 years.

You and me both, I'm 67 and grew up in Bond Hill, always east side. Before I-75 was built Vine St. was generally considered the dividing line between east and west.

As a relatively new transplant (2008) to the Cinci region, I can confirm that most of the natives I speak to (age range early 20s to late 40s) use I-75 as the dividing line between E. and W.

However, apparently that is only "within the loop". Once you are North of 275, all bets are off.

Which I found out just this week, when I was teasing my coworker (who lives in Fairfield) that he's a WestSider. He, a born and bred East Sider (Mariemont, I believe), quickly informed me that because he's "out of the loop" - the term doesn't apply.

I'm not from here (and live in the Northern hinter lands) so don't have a personal stake in this preoccupation. However, from a perspective of geographically being able to place where someone is talking about, its helpful to at least know about the topic.

Here is my take on the matter (my opinion is no more correct than anyone else's)...

Westside =

---Within city-limits: West of 75, South of 74

---Suburbs: All suburbs west of Colerain Ave within the 275 loop

Eastside =

---Within city-limits and suburbs: Anything east of Reading Rd within the 275 loop

If your neighborhood/municipality is not included (like my childhood neighborhood) you most likely do not care about the Westside/Eastside discussion.

Fairfield, Ross, Hamilton are all out of the loop. They aren't part of Cincinnati or even Hamilton County.
