"It depends on what you're looking for"

If you're looking at E. Liberty, how you judge it depends on what you're looking for. If you're a developer hoping to cash in on the future, it's prime territory. If you want to live a quiet, crime free life today, it's probably not the place for you.

East Liberty is a street in transition at the far edge of Over The Rhine and the bottom of the hill from Mount Auburn. It ends at Reading. Just on the other side is a highway connection that takes tons of people to and from I-471 each day, so there's tons of traffic.

Just above this strip of Liberty you'll already find a number of older homes that have been renovated to perfection. That's a pretty quiet area. To the West of the section near Reading Rd. you'll find Pendleton, an area where the Pendleton Art Center and Verdin Bell Center are located. A few yards away on Reading is the construction site of the new Horseshoe casino that's scheduled to open in 2013. That makes this area a prime target for future redevelopment.

"Not the greatest area."

Liberty is a long road and one of the main streets near downtown Cincinnati. Although E Liberty St begins at the intersection of Vine St. There not many houses on this street, but mainly gas stations, corner stores what have you. The area is known for having a higher crime rate that other areas of the city as I would suggest its not a good place to live but if you can handle it the rent is cheaper.

"Not much to it"

There are some neat mom-and-pop eateries and street vendors, but overall, this street runs through some of the neighborhoods that aren't as great and often have reports of crimes and problems.

The actual street itself doesn't seem like it's taken care of too badly. It's just an area that hasn't had a whole lot of positive business development or community press.
