Re: Considering Relocating to the Queen City
Well first things first, find the job you want then decide where to live after that (sounds like that's your plan anyways)
there are a ton of great neighborhoods and suburbs to call home in and around cincinnati, from northern Kentucky up to south dayton that can offer you quick and easy access to the amenities that you're looking for in Cincinnati. I grew up in a south Dayton suburb, lived in Northern Kentucky for a year, Mount lookout for several year, then finally back to the south dayton 'burbs. All were/have been great places to live. I work on the East side of Cincy (Milford) and would consider that a fine area to live as well. However so many things depend on what your looking for. If you want Private schools like Moeller, Elder, Country Day, etc... you can live about anywhere and find something comparable. If you're looking at public schooling, then you're better off in several suburban districts.
At the end of the day, I see so many similarities, advantages, disadvantages to so many different communities in this area that it would be impossible to direct you to one place. So much is going to depend on where you work, what kind of commute you prefer or are even willing to accept (getting in and out of the Cincinnati can be a pain from september thru the end of the school year, getting in/out of a handful of suburban employment centers (think Fields-Ertel, sp?) can be equally fustrating), bussing is more of an option if you live/work around downtown, much tougher outside of the city, unless your taking an express buss downtown.
