"East Westwood is green and affordable"

East Westwood is a neighborhood of less than one square mile that lies on the west side of Cincinnati off of Westwood-Northern Boulevard. It is a very wooded area with a few side streets running off McHenry and Baltimore Avenues. It is predominantly African-American but has about a quarter or a little over a quarter of the population being white and other ethnic backgrounds. There are a number of single family homes along McHenry and Baltimore, but most of the neighborhood is made up of large rental complexes and smaller multi-family units.

The population of East Westwood is mostly low-income falling well under the average income for Cincinnati. There is plenty of public transportation with lots of Metro stops along the main roads. There is a good deal of crime in the area, typical of lower income neighborhoods. Housing is very affordable in East Westwood. There aren't really any businesses to speak of in East Westwood, but there are plenty to be found in nearby neighborhoods.

East Westwood is very close to Mt. Airy Forest and all the recreational activities it has to offer. It is also easily accessible to I-74 via Montana Avenue and to I-75 via Westwood-Northern Blvd./Hopple Street. This means that East Westwood is within close proximity to major hospitals, the University of Cincinnati, and Downtown Cincinnati.
