I am relocating to the Cincinnati area with my job in the next couple months and am looking for a home. Most of the houses I am finding are located in the Forest Park area. The demographics seem pretty mixed which I am used to being here in Chicago and want, but would you recommend it for a SWF to purchase a house there? I hope that question does not come off rude, I just want to be in an area that I feel safe, but want to be in a diverse area.

Cincinnati has a lot of diverse areas to be had. Downtown is great, and safe, Mt. Adams, Mariemont, and other inner ring suburbs.

Could definately find something safer than Fo Par... how much diversity are you looking for. We have black and white in Cincinnati. And most neighborhoods arent that integrated.

Someone mentioned Mariemont and it has 96.9% Caucasion representation according to the US Census Bureau:

Mariemont village, Ohio - Fact Sheet - American FactFinder

You cannot pull out facts for Mount Adams because it is not a city; however, if you find a city or town you like you can simply utilize the link to the Census Bureau and type in the name of that location and it will provide much information of an unbiased and scientific nature.

I moved here from Virginia, and Cincinnati seems to be divided in the minds of the residents into an East Side and West Side. The imaginary line is Interstate 75. The most diverse neighborhoods fall on the West Side, where the East Side shows less diversity in my opinion.

You should know that overall Cincinnati is NOT a well integrated town and you will definitely notice areas made up predominantly of one race or another.

It would be good to know what price range you seek in order to provide any direction.

Silverton sounds good for you. It's right next to Kenwood, which is one the premiere shopping area in the entire metro area.

It depends on the price range too. Forest Park will not be as expensive as say Hyde Park or West Chester. Plenty of new and existing to pick from. What price range are you in?

Yeah, you might want to mention your price range, the location of your job, and what neighborhood "feel" you are looking for (i.e. urban, suburban, rural, small town).

Personally, I would strongly suggest that most new transplants consider something closer to the I-71 corridor. Cincinnati has a very strong local culture and living around other transplants on the Eastside might make more sense. But a lot of that depends on your specific situation.
