Fickle! One day it's 70, the next it's 45 ... etc. You should be OK no matter what with a light jacket.

But it's also a beautiful time, with flowering trees and bulbs everywhere.

I don't want to beat a dead horse, and I know peanut's mom saw my suggestions, but looking past my first sentence & actually reading my post in its entirety would be nice.

The "gaslight" district of Clifton lies mainly north of Ludlow Ave and west of Clifton Ave BTW. It's named that due to the street lamps built to resemble old-fashioned gaslights; the illumination now is incandescent, of course, with some of the lights unfortunately now not so much glowing as glaring with fluorescence. Some of the streets to the south of Ludlow (including Terrace Ave) and to the east of Clifton Ave are also "gaslit." Many other sections of Cincinnati also have gaslight sections, and in every case it's coincidentally a code term for the "nicer" part of the neighborhood.

There should be plenty of "extended stay" options in the CVG area, also in Covington.

Hi all,
I'm going to be moving to Cincinnati in June. I'll be working at the Children's hospital, and I'm going to be working pretty long hours. So I'd like to live as close to the hospital as possible, but in a relatively safe neighborhood. I'm thinking that the Clifton Gaslight neighborhood would be best for me. Could anyone tell me where the boundaries are? I found a couple apartment buildings on Martin Luther King Rd. Is that still considered the gaslight neighborhood? Is it a safe area?

Thanks so much for all your help!!

Nothing on MLK is safe. The epicenter of Clifton Gaslight is Telford and Ludlow. Its only a few square blocks. It would be perfect for a worker at Children's. Look it up on Google Street View and see for yourself. Also search this forum for Clifton Gaslight.

"the illumination now is incandescent, of course, with some of the lights unfortunately now not so much glowing as glaring with fluorescence." This is not actually true on all streets. During the big windstorm last year the gaslight lamps on my street were still on despite the whole street having no power for 3 days. I guess it is possible they are powered by electricity which is underground and separate from all the other power sources. However, The light put off by these lamps is quite dim compared to modern fluorescent (or sodium) street lamps. The "bulbs" are not modern appearing. I guess I would like to find out a little more about this.

I was transferred to my company's Blue Ash, OH office last year and not knowing anything about the area I was recommended to Prince Frederick's Townhomes. They have 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes very cheap ($800-900 a month, which is very affordable coming from the Boston area). They were also in very good condition with new carpeting and a fresh coat of paint before we moved in. We were only there for 7 months until I was transferred again but we never had any issues there and our time was very enjoyable.

Since this thread had died six months ago I doubt the TO is still in the market. But thank you for your contribution. BTW the Prince Frederick complex is on West Galbraith Rd close to its intersections with Winton Rd and the Cross-County Highway. Children living in the complex would be assigned to Finneytown schools.
