When I look at big cities like Chicago, or NYC, the main reason why people visit during the weekends is to go shopping on Michigan Avenue. I think that's were Cincinnati needs to develop itself more. To be more people friendly, to invest in more shopping plaza's and stores.
Because right now, the perception about Cincinnati is that it's filled with dangerous black people, and that there really only a few "safe" area's to walk around. Which is, somewhat true I guess.
Really? Wow, that's a bit sad. Dayton, Ohio used to have a similar problem with its downtown, but we've been working hard and it's a lot safer these days. It's actually pretty exciting - a lot of people actually live there now with new options in green housing and it's home to not only the Reds Dayton Dragons farm team, but also has a large theatre that hosts popular plays such as "Wicked," and if an upcoming ballot issue passes will have a completely renovated and modernized public library.
