With the economy the way it is, you can get into Terrace Park for around 200K, and I would do that in a heartbeat. It is safe, lovely, great for kids, awesome schools, including a local walking elementary, 25 min from downtown. We are moving because of a job transfer, and I don't think we will ever find a place like this again.

Terrace Park has one of the highest, if not the highest homicide rate in the region for this year, over double the rate of the City of Cincinnati.

Default Terrace Park = Murder Central?

I posted this elsewhere, but . . . really? Wealthy Terrace Park, adjacent to Indian Hill, has a higher murder rate than Cincinnati?

I'd like to see your source for this; I'd be astonished if this were true.

According to the following link, the murder risk in Terrace Park is an 8 (compared to 100 as a national average). The same site ranks the murder risk for the city of Cincinnati as 178.

Moderator cut: link removed, competitor site

Last month's murder-suicide involving a sick, elderly couple notwithstanding, I doubt that the folks of Terrace Park hide under their silk sheets in their mansions and quake with fear that someone's coming for them. . . .

For what it's worth, we bought a place in the Ridgewood subdivision of Columbia Township, tucked between Golf Manor, Pleasant Ridge and Amberley Village.

Terrace Park: 1 murder, 2273 residents
Murder Rate: 1 in 2,273

Cincinnati: 67 murders, 332,258 residents
Murder Rate: 1 in 4,959

I used Cincinnati's 2007 numbers, but 2008 is actually on pace to have a lower homicide total

So we should therefore conclude that Terrace Park is more dangerous than Cincinnati? Because when you say "Terrace park has one of the highest murder rates in the region," that's what most folks are gonna think . . . . I'm not sure why else you'd say that, if not to imply that TP is scary.

I'll bet that one murder in TP this year was the first one in years and years.
