"Quiet street in friendly neighborhood, conveniently located for shopping and the university"

Tucked in between Kinnear and King Ave, bounded by railroad tracks to the east and Kenny Road to the west, is a little piece of Clinton Township. The other part of the township is on the north side of Columbus--that must have been a bureaucratic process keeping those two pieces together. What this means, though, is that this neighborhood has its own police (DON'T go down Kenny Rd. at higher than 25 miles an hour) and it's own snow service. Roads get cleaned up fast. Rhoda Avenue is the first street in the neighborhood west of the train tracks. You get to hear trains, and also the planes that are lining themselves up for the Columbus air port. The houses were built in the 1940's--they are well-built small homes. Great starter homes for families. At the end of Rhoda, you are apt to find kids playing baseball in the summer in the street. There aren't any sidewalks, but the streets are quiet and a great place for a walk. It is close to Lennox shopping center and OSU. The only downside is that during football games, cars will be parked bumper to bumper on this street--but then all the houses have off-street parking.
