I lived both with and without a car in Norwood. I never had a problem riding Metro or taking a cab when I didn't have a car. The 4 bus came right up Montgomery Road, or I could hop the 51 into Clifton on Smith, thereby connecting to downtown, Colerain Avenue, etc.

Walking wasn't an issue, neither was riding a bike unless you got really close to Surrey Square where all the traffic is. Even then, as long as you pay attention to your surroundings, you'll be all right.

Granted it has its problems, but if the opportunity presented itself, I would live in Norwood again in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, I'm trying to sell my significant other on us buying a house there in the (near?) future. I know it's not the most glamorous area around Cincinnati, but it has everything that I would look for in a place to live, work, and shop. And that's really all that matters.

As for Covington, that would be my second choice I would recommend to anyone looking to move to Greater Cincy.

Another vote for Covington. I own a home there and I am pretty content living there. The only real gripe I have is on street parking. No driveway. Busses run pretty late here. The 8 TANK bus runs until about 11 PM on weeknights on my street. And having checked some other routes, a couple more run just as late or later along Madison Ave.

Covington has a lot of great older architecture and reasonably prices homes. For the price you mentioned you could get a very nice home in Covington and have a relatively low tax bill. Ample shopping eating establishments and other services are found in Covington and Newport. Newport also has a TANK bus running pretty late at night.
