Beings you've already been acknowledged as a hater you might as well make that longs list of why you prefer Cincy over NKY. Entertain us.
I'm not a hater of NKY. I don't even hate Kentucky in general. In fact, I like NKY and dislike, generally speaking, the other 117 counties. But there's something to be said about why Appalachian settlers, well, settled in the NKY towns aforementioned, as well as Ohio suburbs like St. Bernard, Cleves and Norwood; it feels rural and hilly, kind of like home.

During the winter, I find the Cincinnati/NKY hillsides to look barren and depressing. Many of these older neighborhoods have good people, charming architecture and good character, but I'm just not into the "Appalachian vibe" that exists in many of those hillside neighborhoods. In fact, I prefer to live in older, walkable, but safe neighborhoods; the neighborhood I live in meets those three requirements, but some of the clientele just came off "The Jerry Springer Show" it seems.

I do like places like Bellevue (cleaner than the other river cities), Ft. Thomas, Independence, Edgewood, and older parts of Florence (the newer parts are sterile and dull) in Kentucky. I like Hyde Park, Mt. Lookout, Clifton, Mt. Adams, and Oakley in Cincinnati. I like Mariemont, Montgomery, North College Hill (although it appears to be declining), and Milford in the Ohio suburbs. These places have more of an all-American feel rather than an all-Kentucky or -Appalachia feel; I got enough of that while living downstate.

Yeah, we kinda thought most of the people seemed like they had just come off the Jerry Springer show too! We also thought the rumors of nky in-breeding were alive and well after dining at an Italian restaurant in Crestview Hills, I think it was called Caberros? The atmosphere was nice, but the staff and other diners seemed very "jerry springer-ish".

However the more southern areas of KY seemed much nicer, although they had their share of these types of people too, it was not even close to those in northern KY. The Red River Gorge area was nice, very scenic, also liked the Daniel Boone forest. I cant understand why more northern Kentuckians do not visit these areas, being that there is nothing remotely close to recreation up in that part of the state?

Futhermore, NKY was a Union strongehold, it was by no means full of Confederate sympathizers.
Part of Cincinnati????? That city is in another state entirely! Furthermore, Ohio is not considered an urban area anyway, it is a very rural state! Ive never heard of an area associating themselves with another state? That is definitely a new one. I read a post somewhere on here that said one of your public parks in northern KY has sewage water running thru its creek!!!! Is that true? OMG! From what Ive come to understand, it does not matter whether it be northern or southern KY, it is all about the same in that state.

Also, just to clarify i'm from NKY and grew up on a ranch but I also consider myself also a cincinnatian because NKY is part of cincinnati, make sense?
God, this is the fourth time Ive heard someone claim NKY is part of Cincinnati? That city is another state entirely! I always assumed Kentuckians were very proud of their "southern so to speak" roots? But I guess they are not that proud if they keep associating with another state? NKY is definitely unique! I have never been to an area like this before.

Its usually only people further down in Kentucky carrying a napoleon complex who say we aren't part of Ky. It helps fill that void in their life that only being a dick can accomplish. It's true in a sense to every place that borders another so let me give you some examples. If I'm looking for something rather it be work, something I need, or just to have a good time I'm not going to limit my self to this side of the river. Neither do other people and that's why you see so many Ohio plates in NKY and vice versa. I can get to the stuff in downtown a lot faster than most Cincinnatians. If I'm explaining where I'm from to somebody saying Northern Kentucky is followed by someone assuming I live in the country half the time. Saying Cincinnati gives them a better idea of the kind of place I live in and beings most people are geographically retarded it helps them understand the area before going in to further detail. In Lamens were all Cincinnati Metro and obviously associated.

A lot of us who have roots here had family fight in both armies. Most people flying the Confederate flag now days are ignorant folks who some how associate supporting a government (republican party none the less) obsessed with oppression and being a rebel one in the same.

You are a special little troll. I can't say I've ever seen a troll reference their own troll attempt from another thread as if it was stated by another poster. Bravo young man, bravo.

Actually another poster mentioned that before I did, I believe it was Janett something or other? I am not the only one who finds this disgusting! There is probably many other threads about this same park, on many different forums in this area.

If you actually want to live in the city of Covington, you might want to check out the Fort Wright area, or Park Hills. Also look at Taylor Mill. FWIW
