"Linwood is a Tasty Slice of City Life"

Linwood is a less than one square mile sliver of land situated along Eastern Avenue between Columbia Parkway and Wooster Road/Pike. The neighborhood is primarily industrial. The housing that is located in Linwood tends to be older, single-family urban housing. The residents of the neighborhood are primarily lower income and white. However, the area has grown in popularity, but housing is still fairly reasonably priced. Because of its location, it also tends to be a little more quiet in the residential parts.

The area is conveniently located to some of the nicer Cincinnati neighborhoods. The neighborhood also includes the Otto Armleder Memorial Park, which features a very nice dog park, walking trails, and athletic fields. It is also near Lunken Airport and includes the Lunken Recreation Area, which includes a nice children's playground, golf course, and bike trail.

One of the best features of this tiny area of Cincinnati is the restaurants. There are two really great restaurants located on Eastern Avenue just off of the Beechmont Levy. For one of the best burgers in Cincinnati, head to Terry's Turf Club. Terry's Turf Club has been featured on the Food Networks "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" and has been voted as best burger in Ohio; it is also open until 2 a.m. Another great restaurant located in Linwood is Bella Luna, a romantic Italian restaurant that features live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Bella Luna has won a number of awards at Taste of Cincinnati, as well as a number of Diner's Choice Awards from OpenTable.com.
