I think it's poised to become the next Oakley, which has pretty much become the next Hyde Park. In other words, an excellent location within the metro area and quite a bit of desirable historic housing stock for rehabbers.

Ok...all these posts are a few years old. We have been offered a place by my employer rent free in Madisonville close to Peabody ave and Roe st. I am a married white male with two very young daughters. Is the area safe? Plain and simple. I don't care about the architechture blah, blah, blah. I just want to know if the area is better or worse than say perhaps, Price Hill?

Price Hill is an awfully big area. Are you talking Lower, Incline district, East, or West PH?

Peabody and Roe wouldn't be my first choice if I were moving to Madisonville. Although rent-free might just change my mind. I don't think that area is particularly dangerous, but it's along the railroad tracks and isn't all that attractive.

Madisonville, just like Price Hill or any other neighborhood in Cincinnati, has its good, bad and ugly.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I am planning on moving to Madisonville... Near Whetsel and Bramble... Is it that bad? I'm moving from out of state so all I have is information from these boards and everyone is telling me to stay away from Whetsel. I'd love some input. Thank you!

Stay away from Whetsel.

Around Bramble, the area's not that bad. Crime's relatively low, the yards are well kept, and there are more owner occupied houses than there are a few blocks north of there (north of Erie, Whetsel is a bit more sketchy.) You're relatively close to Mariemont and Oakley, so it seems like a decent low cost working class option. Schools may be an issue if you have kids, but otherwise I see no reason against moving there.

I would say that Whetsel and Bramble is the worst intersection in Madisonville.

The intersection of Bramble and Whetsel wouldn't be my first choice, either. Either end of Bramble and some parts of Whetsel, too, is fine, but for some reason the middle is often a trouble spot. There are much better residential pockets on Madisonville.
