Re: Why hasn't Cincinnati grown as a city?
To say that Cincinnati is or isn't safe is way too broad. As anyone who lives here should know, it's all about which neighborhood you're in, which block, the time of day, etc.
When you take the media's bias and circumstantial evidence out of the equation, it's actually a pretty safe place. The violent crimes tend to happen in the same few neighborhoods, so you only need to use common sense.
