"Observatory Avenue observes family living in an upscale neighborhood"
Observatory Avenue runs from busy Madison Road all the way into Ault Park. It is one of the main cross roads in Hyde Park. It runs parallel to Erie Avenue (the other main cross road through Hyde Park) until Delta Avenue (this is also the busiest section of Observatory Avenue.) Observatory Avenue is a very nice, tree lined street. At the start, near Madison Road, Observatory runs past the Cincinnati Country Club on the south side while houses sit on tree-filled lots on the north side. After Menlo Avenue, houses line both sides of the street until right before Edwards Road, where you'll find Hyde Park Elementary School. The section of Observatory that runs between Edwards and Michigan has a number of businesses situated on either side of the street. After this section of Observatory, the rest is pretty much houses. There are lots of trees in this area, especially as the road continues on towards Ault Park (which is, technically, in Mount Lookout). The housing along Observatory Avenue is mostly larger, single-family homes with decent sized lots and lots of greenery. Houses on Observatory Avenue typically range in price from about the mid-$200s well into the $600-700K range. Observatory Place runs off Observatory Avenue and is the location of both streets' namesake, the Cincinnati Observatory. Observatory Avenue is easily accessed off Interstate 71 at the Dana Avenue exit. It is convenient to all the amenities of Hyde Park, Oakley, Mount Lookout, and other nearby neighborhoods. It is close to Downtown Cincinnati.
