Re: Why hasn't Cincinnati grown as a city?
Hubby and I have spent several weekends in Cincinnati over the years, including being in Cinci just a month or so after the big riots in 2001. I've never been afraid to walk around Cincinnati. We always stay on the Covington side, and usually walk to the ballpark from there, or take the shuttle to downtown and then walk to the ballpark. We've walked back to our hotel after night games before. Granted, it's usually with a few other couples that we've met at the game and begun chatting with on the way back to the hotel, but again, I've never felt nervous or frightened.
We love Cinci, and wouldn't hesitate to live in the area.
