I'll be honest, I'm not entirely familiar with what's been going on in O'Bryonville over the past 10 years. I used to live in Oakley/Hyde Park but have since moved away. It used to be a sort of "in between" area in which you'd have a really nice neighborhood close to Hyde Park and in some other pockets, while other areas would be "ehh". Not up on it's current "chic" factor, but no doubt it is cheaper than Mt. Adams and Hyde Park. Of course, OAKLEY is cheaper than Hyde Park, and a cool little place to live. Not really "urban", though. However, in O'Bryonville you would be closer to downtown, that's for sure. It would basically be a straight shot in via Madison Road, and then hang a left at Gilbert to run you straight into town, or turn down Victory Parkway and go through Eden Park. You could also go down Torrence Parkway to Columbia Parkway, and take that into town - great scenic drive. No more than 10-minutes into town either way.

What should I expect from the Mariemont area? Is it quiet, close proximity to downtown, shopping, dining?

Mariemont is about 20 minutes from downtown, an easy shot down Columbia Parkway, and has Metro access on the #28. It has a few restaurants, a great movie theater, and really is a picturesque little town.

Diverse it is not, however.

I'm sorry, but I've always seen Mariemont as having a snobbish, stuck-up atmosphere. I used to work there and a lot of people I encountered had a pompous, "my farts don't stink" attitude. I'm not trying to unfairly characterize ALL people there, but I've never really been drawn to the place precisely because I didn't think I'd fit in there.

Thanks again guys. The diversity thing isn't too important. I have grown up in a predominately "white neighborhood" all my life so thats fine, I guess I need the reassurance that if I need to find a hairdresser, or something of that nature I'll be okay..............(lol)..........My husband deceided that it's best to get away from the madness after 5, but still be in proxcimity of a good time. I'm looking forward to my visit!!!!!!!

Such being the case, your best bet would probably be Hyde Park or Mt. Lookout. Hope you enjoy your visit.
