This is an inaccurate statement.

I second that notion.

there are so many other great places to live, drink and dine than Over-the-Rhine. I used to go there when I was 22-24 years old for some of the bars and clubs, and then we all moved on to better areas (Mt Adams, Hyde Park, etc).

Well, this area has changed tremendously, just in the past 6-9 months.

When was the last time you were on Vine (near Central Pkwy)?

I haven't been there in the last 6-9 months, so I stand corrected there.

with that said, depending on your age group, there may be better places to be. My friends in the upper 20's/low 30's prefer the Main St district and Mt. Adams.

I think everyone here is basically making accurate statements about OTR in one way or another.

Maestro is totally right that there are better neighborhoods. There IS a crime problem. But Cincy-Rise is totally right about the amazing potential of the neighborhood, and the fact that it IS changing at a rapid rate.

I wish I could find these stats that I read regarding the demographic shift in OTR. It's amazing. In just a few years, it went from something like 10,000 almost exclusively low-income people to more like 5,000 low-income and 2,000 high-income today. Again, this is just my memory, don't hold me to it.

If these trends even remotely continue, OTR could be the next Mt. Adams. Seriously. But yes, there is still a crime problem right now.

I'd like to ask, where is it that you go in the Main St. District? Unfortunately, there is hardly anything left on Main St.

^That was kinda my point. Not much left on Main St., but Vine St. is growing. I wouldn't say this is where the 20/30's are hanging out, as much, anymore. Not that I know where "they" hang out.

what suspect ?
