Otherwise, its a great location for redevelopment, if that ever actually happens.
I believe it could be haunted . I am not a superstitious person but I am open to possibilities beyond the mundane.You are so right that place seems so SCARY looking even in the daytime. Hopefully something in the way of revitalization can happen. Meanwhile it reminds me of the South Bronx ( the infamous " Bronx is burning" era in the 1970s).

Its a shame really that Glencoe is the way it is, because IMHO, the rest of Mt. Auburn looks pretty damn good. Its definitely my favorite neighborhood in Cincinnati.

everything you touch is haunted to some extent.

The thing about Glencoe that I find so damned ugly is they all look the exact same, with no variation in color, texture or features. It's the same continuous facade with the same steps and no architectural details. They say the suburbs have cookie cutter houses, but they must have started in Cincinnati. Too bad the places are listed as historic because they need to torn down. Very depressing just to look at them.

I presume by asking that question you mean "why haven't you been on the message boards lately"....?? I just needed a break away from here. I get heavily involved in the religion boards, and sometimes it can be pretty heated with the debates that go on there. So I stepped back and took some time off from posting at this site.

I just wondered why the sudden disappearance. Good to see you back posting here.

Anyways (back on topic), is it safe to visit this area during the day? The links Mike D provided seriously piqued my interest and have me wanting to visit to take pictures with my camera. Is it a good idea or no?

I don't think anyone lives there, so I kinda doubt anyone would be hanging around to cause problems. It's been a LONG time since I was in that area, and only drove down the street once. That was back in the mid-80s. I would say if you wanted to go snapping photos, take someone with you and just stay close to your car.

Here's a birdseye view from Live Maps.

You can zoom in closer if you need to.

Given proper development this could be a very exclusive address. I dont think the present developer has the necessary resources or vision to make it happen. I could easily see restored townhomes at 1/2 a mill there, a gated community perhaps.

Cincinnati needs more outside developers. the local ones seem to lack enough vison. I hate to say that but it appears to be true.

I certainly won't give you an argument about that. I'm not sure that they'd run for $500K for the simple fact that the surrounding area isn't really considered "desirable". But you have some interesting ideas about making it a gated community.
