"Walk to work, school or just about anything else you need"

Corryville is changing fast, and Martin Luther King Dr. East has led the way. The hospitals and small apartment buildings on the northern side were there decades ago, and the condos and apartments on the southern side of the street started popping up over the past decade.

That's pretty much all you'll see on MLK Dr. East these days: hospitals, apartment buildings and condos. There's also that beautiful Frank Gehry building on the corner of MLK and Eden, a UC Med School building and the EPA building at the MLK/Jefferson/Vine intersection.

Shopping in the Short Vine area is a walkable distance away. There's not a lot of variety, but there is a Kroger, CVS, Walgreens and a few other stores. There are more shops in Clifton on Ludlow and in CUF on McMillan and Calhoun. Downtown is a quick drive or bus ride away. If you must have milk, you'll find that at United Dairy Farmers on Burnet and MLK Dr. E.

There are several bars and night spots with mostly college-geared entertainment in the Short Vine area, on McMillan, CUF and on Ludlow. UC's College Conservatory of Music offers a schedule of less party-like entertainment as well.

There's a Chipotle and a restaurant called Zoup in one of the large residential buildings on MLK. Walk a bit further and you'll find a chili restaurant, a McDonald's and a Dunkin Donuts. You'll find more dining choices in the Short Vine area, in CUF and Clifton.

Burnett Woods is nearby, along with several neighborhood parks and green spaces in Corryville, Clifton and CUF. The Corryville Recreation Center on Eden Ave. has ball fields, an exercise room, after school child care and more.

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/ .

If you live on MLK Dr. East. you can walk to the hospital if you get sick. University, Children's Veterans, and Shriner's hospitals, Hoxworth Blood Center, Ronald McDonald House and more are just across the street.

You can walk to pretty much everything you need in Corryville, but If you would prefer to take public transportation, several Metro bus routes travel the Corryville section of MLK and beyond.
  • Nice condos and apartments and plenty of hospitals
  • Crime here and there
