Which P&G facility? They are in various locations all over the area. I'm sure you'll want to live near where you work?

Downtown? Really?


If you like bars and the rich college crowd Mt. Adams

Alot of people like oakley but I personally think its run down and you deffinately have to be careful alot of bad parts. Mariemont is right outside of oakley and really cute all cottage type homes and it's litteraly 2 minutes from oakley.

Hyde Park is more for rich people who care alot about their yard. It's very nice but I wouldn't say it's for single people.

Also Newport, KY would be good still building but nice and lots of day and night life. You can check out newport on levee to try and get a feel

According to google maps, oakley is 12 minutes away from Mariemont, which along with your claims oakley is scary and dangerous makes me think you are confusing Madisonville with Oakley on this and several other threads.

When I first moved to Cincinnati (for work also) a year and a half ago, I rented a loft apartment downtown so I could be in the center of everything and have a very short trip to all of the areas people will mention as being good on these forums. Downtown you can walk to countless pubs and restaurants as well as take a $7 taxi across the river to and from Northern Kentucky (Newport & Covington). Deciding on downtown was the best thing I could have done when first moving here. I got to sample all of the different neighborhoods for my first year without committing to any one of them until I found what I wanted. I figured, if I was going to throw myself into a new city I was unfamiliar with, I might as well go all out and jump in heads first in the middle of things...glad i did.

Welcome to Cincinnati!

I'll echo the downtown sentiment; perhaps even across the river in Newport or Covington.

Mariemont is the last place a new college grad would want to live. Unless you've already got three school-age kids and a high-end SUV.

Hey! Madisonville isn't scary, either! *hmph* Well ... not all of it, anyway.

Default Move to Cincinnati

You may want to add Clifton to your searches.

Mt. Lookout would be a good place too. The part of Madisonville that is in Madison Place isn't bad, but no good bar scene within walking distance. I agree that Mariemont would not be what you are looking for. It's a family village, and it's quite expensive. I would say Downtown, Mt. Lookout, Mt. Adams, Oakley/Obryonville, and Newport. Since you are so young, you may even like Clifton, but I would suggest only living in the gas light district. (near Ludlow).
