Re: Why hasn't Cincinnati grown as a city?
A lot of the crime in "Clifton"--maybe most of it--comes from Mt. Auburn, Over-the-Rhine, etc. You're talking about people with hardly any money being surrounded by kids who come from money. It's easy pickin's. They come up to Clifton and University Heights, look for unattended cars (especially ones with unlocked doors), steal what they can, and go back. There isn't a lot of violent crime involved. It's more inconvenient than it is unsafe. The violent crimes in this city are drug-related, and the people with crack and meth problems aren't hanging out on UC's campus.
