"Things are changing on Seminole"

Don't rely on Google Maps to give you an accurate picture of Seminole St. Whatever you see there has changed already, and it will continue to change in the future. The city has plans for this area, which they've dubbed "Uptown": http://www.uc.edu/af/commdev/UCCURC.html . Seminole and most other Corryville streets are part of the Uptown destiny.

Seminole is two blocks away from the University of Cincinnati, which means it's in the direct path of change. New commercial and multi-unit residential buildings have already gone up on nearby streets, but on Seminole there are still a number of older, larger homes. The owners (My brother is one of them) are simply waiting to be bought out to make way for future construction. In the meantime, those older, larger homes are occupied by a mix of college students and families.

There are shops one short block away in the Short Vine area, including a Kroger, a Walgreens and a CVS. Clifton and CUF also have a number of shopping options on Ludlow. If these aren't enough, it's a short ride into Downtown Cincinnati or the Findlay Market.

This is a college area, and that means there are college bars and night spots, a few are just a walk away in the Short Vine shopping area. Others are on McMillan and in the CUF and Clifton areas.

On Short Vine you'll find Jamaican, pizza, Cincinnati chili and other dining choices. You'll find Chinese, Burritos, Five Guys and other options five minutes away in CUF on Calhoun and McMillan. Ten minutes away in Clifton there are several Indian restaurants, a coffee shop, a bakery and more.

Burnett Woods is five minutes away and great for picnicking and other activities. (A month or so ago I saw a bunch of college kids doing trapeze lessons there.) The Corryville Recreation Center is several blocks away. They have baseball fields, an exercise room, after school programs for children and more. There are several small neighborhood parks in Corryville and nearby Mt. Auburn. University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music has an ongoing program of entertainment.

University of Cincinnati is a walk away and Cincinnati State is 10 minutes away. There are two CPS schools in the Clifton area: Fairview-Clifton German Language School (Preschool-6): http://fairview.cps-k12.org/ , Hughes STEM High School (7-12): http://hughesstem.cps-k12.org/ . Corryville Catholic School (pre - 8) is located nearby on Calhoun: http://corryvillecatholic.org/ .

Seminole Ave. is walking distance to a number of medical facilities: University, Children's Veterans, and Shriner's hospitals, Hoxworth Blood Center, Ronald McDonald House and more. Two bus routes service the area.
  • It's a great neighborhood for walkability
  • Occasional crime
