I'm surprised that Newport isn't in that Kentucky list. Doesn't it have at least 20,000 people?

Wow. That's really depressing. It's a similar story here in Scranton, where we've declined from 145,000 at our peak to only half as much today. Incoming New Yorkers, where art thou?

Newport's waterfront area and eastern areas are actually really nice. Newport on the Levee (a new urbanism development) has nearly put Downtown Cinci out of business after 7pm. East Row is one of the best historic neighborhood's in the state. West Newport (around the Licking River) is basically a 'redneck ghetto'

desert sun, you have no idea what the population grew in one year, estimates are never correct, you can only know the real population figures every ten years when the US census comes out.

Go Ne, i agree with you, that is a strange, odd looking building, and i wonder who the 'master' of this building is, because it SUCKS!!!

I had no clue about Covington and Newports skyline, thats awesome, love that building in the middle aswell.

Covington and Newport might be losing residents, but Northern KY itself is gaining.

More people are moving south of the two river cities. Independence and Florence have already been mentioned. Other areas such as Hebron (right by the airport), Burlington and Union are also growing. I think my own community, Erlanger, is staying about the same (I don't have the census figures in front of me). But it's holding its own, and it's a great community.

And anywhere you are in Northern KY, you're only about 15-20 minutes away from the aforementioned Newport-On-The-Levee, which puts anything north of the river to shame.
