"Lots to do in a diverse neighborhood"

Cedar Ave. is lined with older homes; and while some may need a little attention, most are well maintained. There are several large rental communities along Cedar as well.

College Hill is a neighborhood of diverse residents and businesses and Cedar Ave crosses right through the heart of its business district. The area has seen a lot of changes over the past decade, but it keeps a base of families and long-term businesses that keep things bouncing back. St. Clare Catholic Church has been on Cedar Ave. for nearly a century. While many areas are losing their post offices, Cedar still has a full service USPS. PNC Bank has been on the corner of Cedar and Hamilton for years.

Dining
There are several restaurants on Hamilton Ave. that are within walking distance of Cedar: Bacall's Cafe, College Hill Coffee Company, LaRosa's, Chung Ching, Goodies Barbecue. Marty's Hops and Vines is walking distance on Hamilton Ave. They offer "small plate" nibbles to go with their wine and beer selection.

Shopping
The shops along Hamilton Ave come and go, but you'll still find a few like College Hill Coffee Company, which sells gift items and serves coffee and entrees. Schwartz Jewelers has been in business on Hamilton for 73 years. The shops in the area aren't upscale boutiques, but you'll find variety enough. Although you will have to go some distance to find a grocery

Entertainment
Marty's Hops and Vines is nearby on Hamilton Ave. They're pretty new to the neighborhood, offering a selection of wines, beers and a "small plate" menu for nibbling. Shaker's Entertainment Complex has been serving up drinks and soul music on the corner of Cedar and Hamilton for years.
