"Florence Avenue is the new in the old"

Hazelwood has a long history in the northern part of Cincinnati, at one time, it was a rural African-American community. Though many homes were built in the early-to-mid-1900s, the area remained a poor one for many years. The Hazelwood community was annexed by Blue Ash in 1959, but it was thanks to the efforts of a group of residents that Hazelwood moved into the modern era. Today, Hazelwood still has a predominantly African-American population with many of the older houses still remaining. However, recent years have seen many new homes built, including those on Florence Avenue. The Florence Avenue homes were mostly built within the last six or seven years and are a good value for being in the Sycamore School District. One of the three churches in the Hazelwood community is located on Florence Avenue. Because of the newness of the homes on Florence Avenue, it is one of the nicer streets in Hazelwood. Florence Avenue is located one street over from Cornell Road, which provides close access to I-275 via Reed Hartman Highway (and thus, easy access to I-71). It is also located close to a number of restaurants and other businesses at the intersection of Cornell and Reed Hartman.
