I love all the people saying things like, "Stay on the West Coast - where you belong". And the one person with the comment, "who speaks like this?". So - how many of you who have this opinion on this board have an iPhone or Droid phone? Yeah, the people who came up with those nifty ideas weren't living in Kentucky, I'll tell you that much. And to the poster from Louisville who commented, "who speaks like that". I've know many people who speak like that - they live in places like Washington, DC, which, mock it all you want, is still the capital of the free world - and last I looked, Louisville isn't the capital of anything.

Your posts reek of pretension and ignorance. I can't imagine why you might have had a bad experience when you visited Kentucky.
I know why he/she had a bad experience....because that's was what they were looking for...They GREW UP THERE and didn't like it, so, when I go back, I know it will be worse than ever.

Why did they even go back? I guess Mommie and Daddie had a few bucks they didn't need.

Sometimes you just got to swallow your pride and say "Home Sweet Home".

Jesse....honey...I know you were trying to say something but, for the life of me I can't figure out what... and I even went back and read every post over again.

...now that is an interesting observation. Louisvillians as slightly eccentric. Hmm....

@@@@

Northern Kentucky....is really more part of Cincinnati, suburban Cincinnati. The comment about passive-aggressive personalties also describes other parts of SW Ohio (my experience here in "Daytonnati"), so maybe you are observing a regional characteristic, but one that doesn't travel much further south than the I-75/I-71 split. Because I don't see that in Kentuckians from elsewhere in the Commonwealth.

I have to agree that NKY and really Cincinnati are very odd places, I was born in NKY and have lived here for the majority of my adult life, and while I didnt notice it when I was a teen or in my early aduulthood, now that Im in my 40s, I clearly do a HUGE difference in this general area and other cities/states, Cinicinnati trys and trys to attract businesses, visitors, residents and they just cant seem to get people to come here, as the mayor said, "Cincinnati has no image", well it has an image, just not a positive one! And people from NKY act like they are part of Cincinnati, rather than accept that they are part of kentucky, you will find the people are much different than in other parts of the state, I still cant believe all the NKY people that root for UK though, it seems they would be for UC or a team in OH?? Never could understand that? and the driving habits are ridiculous! In no other area will you find buses, commercial trucks, etc that drive like 90 yr old grandmas! and you will get stuck behind many of them as they have NO respect for other drivers as they keep driving along at 15mph BELOW the speed limit?! Every other city ive been to, buses and trucks drive like bats out of hell? In my opinion NKY/ Cincinnati try so hard to be the city everyone likes and think of themselves as much larger than they are, when they must realize sooner or later, we are cities pretty much in the middle of nowhere with no real attractions here, the riverfront is nice, if you can stand the smell and nastiness of the river, no other major lakes or natural attractions AT ALL in this whole area?!! That is AMAZING?

What are you talking about?

I just recently moved to Cincinnati. I am from Philadelphia. Cincinnati has a pretty positive image nationwide. It is in the top 10 for fortune 500 companies based in the city. I guess Procter and Gamble, Macy's, Kroger, Fifth Third, Great American Insurance, GE Aviation, etc mean nothing. Cincinnati has a growing city proper population (that is without annexing like most cities these days seem to do). Hamilton County is growing, and so is the Cincinnati Metro area. Cincinnati is experiencing billions of dollars in investment in the city's downtown by itself. The Banks, casino, Great American Tower, Over The Rhine, Washington Park, Cincinnati Riverfront Park, and all the condo/apartment conversions. We also get to look forward to the streetcar. Cincinnati is a very white collar city that has a high college educated population. Cincinnati's neighborhoods are some of the best in the Midwest, and Cincinnati's architecture is admired on a national level. I live in Blue Ash right now, but I am planning on buying a loft in downtown or a place in one of the city's many terrific neighborhoods. Right now it is hard to get a place that is new or being converted because they are so popular. The Banks phase one is pretty much completely sold out, and most Over The Rhine locations have a waiting list.

Sorry, but Cincinnati has some of the highest amounts of development going on in the country right now. It has a pretty positive image from an outsider who moved in standpoint. And it has some pretty well known cultural ammenities. You can't beat its topography and how the city neighborhoods close to the central business district have awesome views of the skyline from the foothills. I love the food scene here, and the urban vibe.

Your post what slightly ammusing. I don't mean to bash you in anyway, so please don't take it the wrong way. But you really need to travel a little bit more. I work in PR, and my job requires me to travel on a weekly basis across the country, and Cincinnati is by far one of the nation's most underrated and rising cities on many levels.

I happen to like Kentucky. Of course it doesn't have the best image, but hey, at least you're not on Detroit's level.
