really guys....cincinnati has townhomes, rowhouses and tenements. charlotte has subdivisions and a little bit of urban core. your city compares more to columbus. cincinnati was the first major city built during the era of first generation americans. boston, ny, philly, baltimore, d.c. and pittsburgh were built by mostly european immigrants. cincinnati has a very east coast look because of how early it was built. the cincinnati reds are the oldest franchise in sports. 1869. nobody had even heard of charlotte until 1969. remember, america wasn't america until 1776, an in a way, 1787.

after cincinnati there's a significant dropoff in the age of the housing stock. st. louis, then chicago. you can see it in the architecture. detroit and cleveland were incorporated early, but didn't take off until the turn of the 20th century. unfortunately, cincinnati was rivaling philly as the most dangerous and corrupt city in america, so growth slowed down. philly was coastal, so all immigrants had to do was float over and it kept growing. but cincinnati was already plenty established by then. the queen city of the west.

Unfortunately St. Louis has lost a lot of its historic homes to demolition and neglect. Fortunately, there is some restoration going on.
