"Peacefully off the beaten path"

I'm beginning to realize that I've lived in, worked in or visited quite a few Cincinnati neighborhoods. Years ago I lived on a little street you could only get to by traveling Bantry. It's always been a quiet, peaceful, predominately African American street. The homes are older and mostly small, and they are all well maintained. They've been that way as long as I can remember.

The streets in the area are tree-lined and neat, and you can't cut through. Once you pass the first street that intersects with Bantry, the rest end in cul-de-sacs, That means there's very little traffic.

When I lived in that part of Kennedy Heights it was known as the "Water Tower Area." Each day I'd pass by a big water tower that was in a grassy circle in the middle of a street that intersected with Bantry. The tower is gone, but they've renamed that big grassy circle Water Tower Park. Each year the residents of Bantry and the adjacent streets put on "Taste of Bantry," Neighbors bring food and play games. They have a one mile morning walk/run.

Bantry is a quiet residential area, but it's close to Pleasant Ridge and Kenwood for shopping and dining. Its near the Kennedy Heights Art Center and close to Kennedy Heights Park. There's a small CRC Recreation Center a few miles away on Red Bank Rd. and it's near Daniel Drake Park. Jewish Hospital Kenwood is about 10 minutes away.

It's close to Montgomery Rd. so you could take a Rt 4 Bus if you didn't want to drive.
  • A quiet tree-lined street
