Well, how does it compare with Munich?

The answer is not very well as Cincinnati shares a lot of the same problems that many other cities of the US have and while it may be improving or at least not getting worse in recent years, it still has a lot of issues to work out whereas Munich is often cited as one of the most "livable" cities of the world with great social services and safety record, fantastic infrastructure, and a large vibrant urban core without areas to avoid or to be wary of.

Then get out of the topic. This is about Munich vs Cincinnati, and it's obvious that Cincinnati has very large quality of life issues when we're comparing it to Munich. You'd probably do your city a lot more good by recognizing that and going to make some kind of change.

I know Munich and must say that it is quite overrated. Sure, it is safe and rich, but also a bit boring and kitschy, not to mention too expensive for what you get.
The biggest advantage is that it is great for pedestrians, probably unlike Cincinnati, although I have never been there.
Actually, I don't think it makes sense to compare such completely different cities, Cincinnati is a prototypical US city, Munich a prototypical European city, as such they are bound to be very different.
I don't think they are sister cities because of any supposed similarity.

Cincinnati could be great for pedestrians, but its inner city does have serious crime and poverty issues. In that sense, and the sense that it has suburbs sprawling out from it, Cincinnati is a prototypical US city, but there's a strong key difference between Cincinnati and many other US cities in that it was developed fairly early in the US's history (it was first boom city of the US interior) back before there was much use of trams, rail, or automobiles so the city itself has large stretches more fitting of old East Coast cities, and to some degree European cities, than the more spread out later cities when it comes to its urban layout. It also managed to keep quite a bit of that even in the urban renewal projects of the latter 20th century US (lots of cities made for walking had those neighborhoods leveled for giant urban housing project towers and for expressways and highways to cut through to downtown).

First i was not the first to get off topic, review the comments on the first page nor was i initially trying to get off topic, yes i know Cincinnati has issues but when a poster said that and he was from Chicago i couldnt help but defend my city.
