"Lower Price Hill is the historic Price Hill"

Lower Price Hill is the smallest by far of the three Price Hill neighborhoods. It also has more industry than the other two Price Hill neighborhoods. It is adjacent to Queensgate and is the closes of the Price Hill neighborhoods to Downtown Cincinnati.

Lower Price Hill, while being mostly business, is also the portion of Price Hill that has a historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Lower Price Hill Historic District contains nearly 200 old buildings and homes. Many of the buildings were built in the 1850s.

Because of its relative size, Lower Price Hill has less crime than the other two Price Hill neighborhoods, but is definitely not immune to criminal activity. The population in this neighborhood is more diverse than West Price Hill. In comparison to East Price Hill, Lower Price Hill has a larger Hispanic population.

Since this area is mostly industrial, there aren't a lot of places to live. The places that are here are not the best kept, are crowded and old. Even though Mt. Echo Park is a decent park, there are not many other amenities in this community. I would probably not choose to live in Lower Price Hill.
Pros
  • proximity to Downtown
  • Mt. Echo Park
Cons
  • crime
  • primarily industrial
