"Ravine Street is steep"

Ravine Street is one of the steeper streets in Cincinnati. It runs from Straight Street down to Central Parkway. Most of the housing along Ravine Street is occupied by students attending the University of Cincinnati, so housing prices are very affordable; however, the neighbors ca get pretty rowdy, especially later at night. Situated at the corner of Ravine and Warner Street is the Ravine Street Market. A neighborhood grocery about halfway down the main stretch of Ravine. It offers a convenient location to pick up some of the snacks and drinks that are staples of the college life. Ravine Street passes by Fairview Park, so there is more greenery on that side of the road that abuts the park. Parking is mostly on street and can be hard to find at times, especially around McMillan. Ravine Street is very convenient to working in Downtown Cincinnati, the University of Cincinnati, and the major hospitals, in fact Ravine Street runs very close to Deaconess Hospital. Because Ravine Street is so steep, there are no bus stops along it, but there is one at the top and one at the bottom of the hill.
Pros
  • cheap housing
  • convenient location
Cons
  • steep
  • rowdy neighbors
Recommended for
