The area right around the ballpark in Cincinnati is alot like Victory Park (where I lived for two years).

Washington Park in OTR is like Klyde Warren/ Arts district. The Music Hall, Memorial Hall and School for Creative and Performing Arts are all right on Washington park.

You are right, there is no uptown in Cincinnati, but it is still a much more architecturally diverse city than Dallas. They still have Texas donut style apartment blocks that you would find in uptown in Cincy.

I think the architectural diversity in Dallas is on the underrated side, but not in comparison to Cincinnati.

Right, Cincinnati would win this argument against any sunbelt/ western city. I don't mean it as anything against Dallas in particular.

Cincinnati is a really cool city, very unique, and I have a lot of family there. Definitely a city that I have a soft spot for.

With all that being said, to live? I'd pick Dallas every single time. Warmer, more to do, more potential as a city and as a region.

There's some beautiful architecture in areas of Cincy. It's just not quite gentrified enough yet though it is making positive improvements. Cincy isn't even on the same level as Columbus in terms of gentrification.

Totally agree. Can't believe it is polling this close to a city 3 times its size. I must admit, I also have a soft spot for Cincy, and I used to not care for it. What 3CDC has done for that city in the last 10 years is nothing short of remarkable. If you think Cincy hasn't gentrified, you need to get back there. OTR could be mistaken for Brooklyn 6 or 7 blocks of it at least. Hey, its something lol.

Cincy has certainly gentrified and the OTR area is really coming around, but it's not on the same level of the Central Dallas neighborhoods.

Long before any rebirth of Cincinnati's riverfront or OTR, the noted urbanist Aaron M. Wrenn said this: "There is simply not a city in the Midwest apart from Chicago that has anything near the great assets of Cincinnati. It is an embarrassment of riches." This 2008 testimony may well explain why so many forum members today rank it so highly with a city three times its size.
