The city's population is growing, slowly, but after decades of sharp decline any growth is good. Cincinnati's population grew to 298,550 from 298,041, an increase of 509 people, or 0.17 percent. In the five years since the 2010 Census, Cincinnati has added 1,644 people or about a half percent to its population. Cincinnati metropolitan area, which grew by about 0.4 percent to 2,157,719 people between 2014 and 2015, according to Census Bureau statistics released earlier this year.

THANK YOU.

Bist cities are in a rebuilding phase and struggling with numerical growth due to outer areas of the city losing population as quickly as the core is being revitalized.

Cincinnati isn't southern but I think you're downplaying the overlap of culture between Northern Kentucky and Cincy.
Northern Kentucky is not the real Kentucky.

^ Neither NKY nor KY were meant to be the prime focus of the thread. Although numerous contributors have diverted the discussion to this particular relationship alone, the OP inquired specifically about Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh, wherein much might still be discussed.

Cincinnati is an arguably more economically healthy metro. The MSA has a core which is mostly in decline (save for the areas right around downtown) but has very healthy growth in most of the exurban areas. In contrast, the Pittsburgh MSA has a legacy as a much more decentralized area, with many more small urban mill towns outside of city limits. Thus most of the outlying counties are in decline, with exurban growth limited to a few select areas. The city core never fell as far as Cincinnati however - a lot more of it is middle class, and more neighborhoods are currently feeling further gentrification.

I recently spent some time on the water in downtown Pittsburgh and was very impressed with how clean and clear the rivers are around Pittsburgh. Of course Cincinnati is far downstream and so it may be logical the water is not as clean but I'll bet many people don't know the rivers around Pittsburgh have crystal clear water in the summer time. i
