I agree with you about a lot of things, but this one I have to disagree with you on. There are far more desirable areas of Oakley than the Brotherton/Paxton Woods intersection. I'd rather be in the Drake/Isabella/Markbreit/Taylor/Gilmore areas and south of there.

Well thank you for verifying the fact that you do need someone to protect you in Oakley. I just can't believe you people this person is putting a very big decision in our hands and you tell her Oakley out of every town in cincy you tell them Oakley?

^ perhaps you are wrong for telling this person to avoid Oakley. That's the craziest thing I have ever heard. You know those "Oakley is not Hyde Park" tee shirts? Well, they're humorous for a reason, Oakley is an up and coming neighborhood that is mimicking some of the positives that Hyde Park has had and it's working. It just needs to be independent. But telling someone that Oakley is dangerous is a joke. lol

are you sure you know where oakley is? is it possible that you are confusing it with a different neighborhood?

...seriously? If you were referring to, say, Over-The-Rhine, I might understand. But Oakley's not dangerous. I wouldn't recommend wandering around alone at 1 am, but that's just common sense that should be exercised in ANY area of the city.

I highly recommend walking around at 1 am.

I'm staying at the Drexel on Paxton Ave temporarily before a permanent move and while I know little about the city overall, would not characterize it as remotely dangerous. It's minutes from Hyde Park and lots of other good stuff.

Oakley has benefited greatly from its proximity to Hyde Park. I had a bunch of friends buy homes in Oakley so that they have the amenities of HP but lower prices. Great highway access too.

I agree with a lot of the posters here, Oakley in general is safe and if you buy a house in the majority of the town, you may be investing in good real estate. I also agree that once you get past the "downtown Oakley" area, is starts getting more shady.

Mariemont and Oakley are nothing alike. A LOT of people cant afford Mariemont, so presenting it as an alternative to Oakley doesnt make sense.

I lived in Oakley for over 2 decades. The square area of Madison is very nice. Down towards Brotherton its a little less appealing but as neighborhoods go it is still nice. Perfectly safe and property values can be expected to do well there. I lived right of Oakley square but know people all around the area there so hit me up if you want more specific information.
