Have you been to Hyde Park, Gaslight, or Mt Adams? And Wyoming is a small town, really not urban at all. How exactly are you defining diverse? Urban (ish, in some cases), but diverse? Not so much. I'd have to add East Walnut Hills to that list, which is actually urban and diverse, with a lot of varied architecture to choose from.

Thirding Mariemont, too. It's a great little town, although very much NOT diverse if that's important to you. It's sort of snooty and hard to be "new" in, too, but there are so many nice amenities and such a pretty atmosphere that I could deal with that part

Price Hill Will
I think you are absolutely right about Price Hill, often people from Cincinnati don't see the assets they have. We looked at Price Hill and I just couldnt find the "right house". As it was we settled for a great house in North Fairmont, despite the fact I was told it was an awful neighborhood full of drug dealers and crime. We found a great pocket of a neighborhood off Harrison. Just a quick check on of my block was mostly proffessional people and not one of my neighbors Mercedes or Jaguar's have been stolen.

The very people who "pan" neighborhoods like Price Hill, Fairmont, Dayton street and OTR will be the same people in a few years, bemoaning the fact they can't afford to buy there. I saw the same thing happen in our neighborhood In indianapolis,nobody wanted to live in our neighborhood when we arrived in 2000, today you cant touch a
house for less than 200K.

It only takes a few dedicated people, some good PR,and 'perceptions' change quickly.

I have to disagree with this, because diversity is about more than race and ethnicity. In the case of places like Mt Adams and HP/Oakley/MTL you have very diverse neighborhoods by numerous measures. Housing type, land use, price, age, marital status, etc. etc.

One of the things that's really confused me about moving to Cincinnati is that locals seem to regard certain neighborhoods (like Hyde Park) as these exclusive luxury enclaves. But by national standards, these neighborhoods are quite mixed and eclectic. Yes, you have $2,000,000 mansions - but they are on the same street as $300,000 houses!! Yes, you have $1,000,000 condos under construction, but they literally overlook $500/month apartments!! In other parts of the country, this would be unheard of!! It's amazingly diverse in these respects.

Mt. Adams, Clifton, and Certain parts of HP can be very diverse. You might have a case with HP, but not so much with Clifton and Mt. Adams.

Where is Mariemont? Terrace Park? Madiera? Anderson Township? Esp. if people are really looking at good schools.

Terrace Park has one of the highest, if not the highest homicide rate in the region for this year, over double the rate of the City of Cincinnati.

Really? Is it because they're all bitter because they can't afford to live in Indian Hill? Or because they have to send their kids to school with the rabble from Fairfax? [/sarcasm]

Actually, that's kind of a fascinating statistic -- but then again, one murder in Terrace Park would give it a higher homicide rate per capita than Cincinnati's.

Since you've cross-posted this several places, I guess I will too. I'd love to see your source for this; I'd be astonished if this were true. If it is, statistically, well, you know the quote about lies, d****d lies, and statistics

According to the following link, the murder risk in Terrace Park is an 8 (compared to 100 as a national average). The same site ranks the murder risk for the city of Cincinnati as 178.

Moderator cut: link removed, competitor site

Last month's murder-suicide involving a sick, elderly couple notwithstanding, I doubt that the folks of Terrace Park hide under their silk sheets in their mansions and quake with fear that someone's coming for them. . . .
