"Classic buildings for in town living"

Broadway runs through Downtown Cincinanti and passes behind the Justice Center, a street away from the Hamilton County Courthouse and several other busy public buildings. But after it crosses Central Parkway into Over The Rhine, its mostly a residential street with a cultural mix of occupants.

The buildings are older, mostly Victorian architecture. Many are brownstone style homes that have been rehabbed into beautiful homes. (Similar homes in the area sold recently for 500,000 plus.)

Because Broadway cuts through the hub of Hamilton County justice operations, there are cars coming and going, seeking cheap parking spaces on the street. The layout of the residential section of the street helps to ease traffic problems. It dead-ends before starting up again on the northern side of Liberty Ave.

There are a few businesses on Broadway at the corner of Central Parkway, but mostly the OTR section is residential. You'll find bars, dining and shopping two streets over on Main, with department stores and many more restaurants five minutes away in Downtown.

There are two elementary schools on Vine and the School for Creative and Performing Arts is close on Central Parkway.

Medical facilities are 10 minutes away in Corryville and Avondale. There are several churches in town and in Over the Rhine.
Pros
  • Nice Victorian homes
Cons
  • Crime in the area
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees
