No, sir. That is where i recieved my associates degree though. So, I lived there for a while. I also lived in OTR for a while (2005). Currently in northern KY for my bachelors. Not sure the relevance of that, but you asked. Also, I havnt heard much more on this article lately.

How is OTR doing today in terms of crime, and safety for those willing to invest and live there?

OTR's crime rate has dropped considerably. Especially as areas are redeveloped and people are willing to cooperate with the police. That's not to say there are not isolated pockets of rough areas north of Liberty. Parts of Race Street (at Green for example) are still troublesome. Also, McMicken up to East Clifton is still very rough. Most, if not all the problems are drug related. In fact, McMicken is still the pits as it meanders it's way through Fairview.

It's also note worthy that significant investment is beginning north of Liberty, and in the areas I noted as rough. North Rhine Projects are rehabbing numerous residential projects in the area. I am not familiar with them and hope they are not slum lords. Perhaps someone can tell us a little more about them. Either way, I am happy to see the investment creep it's way across all of OTR.

As a note, it's not all peaches and cream south of Liberty. Some areas are under heavy redevelopment and have not realized their potential just yet. Washington Park is sure to be a game changer for Race and Elm Streets though. Walnut Street still has some rough patches as well. Though Walnut does not suffer from the vacancies you find on parts of Race and Elm streets.

That's not to say things are not significantly improved over last year. There have been a couple shooting recently, but no murders. Last year north of Liberty was plagued by a gang war and that seems to be over now. I know the police have made things very uncomfortable for criminals in the area. Strong bike police presence has sure made a dent. Plus many arrests in gang related crime.

I live on Mulberry and E. Clifton is pretty bad. There are almost always prostitutes and other nonsense happening at Lang & E. Clifton, since it is slightly out of sight of McMicken. Mulberry is remarkably free of pretty much any loitering, despite a little more than half of the street being Section 8. There is a Mercedes and two BMW's that park overnight, every night on Mulberry near the top and nobody gets their cars broken into.

From time to time I walk over Mulberry, seems like a cool street.

It's low-key, with only one or two vacant buildings, but not a lot of people around. There are almost no homes on the north side of the street so there is always tons of parking available when people visit. The views from the balconies are the best in the city outside Mt. Adams. I think the views are better than the Prospect Hill views.

The downside is that are are a few nasty blocks to walk through if you want to walk to Main St. or to Findlay Market. There aren't any corner markets within walking distance where the nonsense can be avoided. During the day it's fine but at night there is a bit of a risk.

^^ I bet the views are awesome from inside or a back deck. Walking along there are several spots where you can see downtown and I usually stop and stare a second or two.

Perhaps with North Rhine Projects rehabbing several buildings on McMicken the area will clean up a little.

^Eh, at least they're rehabbing buildings. But, the apartments are low income. I think market rate units are what is needed to turn that area around.
