If I were to live 20 minutes away from downtown Cincy and I would have to be at work at 8 a.m. how long do you think it would take me to get there?

If you could be of any help, it would be great!!

Also, what are the closet gated apartments to downtown?

Can I presume you mean 20 miles...? Otherwise, you answered your own question.....it would take you 20 minutes.

Define "gated". Are you talking about "security building", with a locked access door? Because there are quite a few in the area.

Well normally it would take 20 minutes without any traffic (from what map quest says)... but with rush hour, how long do you believe it would take? I am looking around the loveland area at the moment but am open to ideas and suggestions!

gated- meaning security in general. I just want to be safe. this will be my first time living by myself and I am a 23 yr old female!

thanks for your help!

I was driving over 75 today, on Ludlow going between Northside and Clifton and I75 was a parking lot. No exaggeration. Mwuahahahahaaa!

*GASP*



You were driving? Does your probation officer know that?



Just kidding.

I have no doubt that what you are saying is true. I think we should probably focus on getting the OP into a security building much closer to downtown as opposed to out in Loveland. Rush hour won't be a pretty thing to face on a daily basis living out there.

Ashblynn02, how much are you wanting to spend in rent?

I recommend Clifton Colony Apartments, and any apartments on Ludlow in Clifton, the Eden Park area and also try Mount Lookout. I live in Columbia Tusculumn (right next to Mount Lookout) and if I needed to get downtown by 8am I can leave out at 7:45am and its a straight shot. If you live in Eden Park it takes less than 10 minutes.

Ashblynn,

Where are you moving from? Cincinnati is in general a very safe city and in most areas you won't need any more "security" other than common sense and a good set of locks.

What are you looking for in a neighborhood? For a 23-year-old working downtown, Loveland would not be my first recommendation. If you spell out some criteria, perhaps we can steer you toward someplace with a better commute as well as other amenities.

That said . . . traffic in Cincinnati is generally much easier than in many other cities. I-75 is as bad as it gets, but you wouldn't be taking that from Loveland to downtown, anyhow.
