"North Fairmount: Full of Urban Blight"

North Fairmount is not much different than South Fairmount, a semi-industrial neighborhood of primarily run-down older homes, many of them boarded up from years of neglect. It is an urban area to its core and is filled with mainly low-income residents. More than 50% of the North Fairmount residents live below the poverty level. The neighborhood is primarily African-American, with a growing percentage of Hispanic residents.

The neighborhood of North Fairmount lies to the west of Interstate 75 and is easily accessed via the Hopple Street exit. Its location makes it convenient to Downtown Cincinnati and the major hospitals in the Clifton/University Heights area, as well as the University of Cincinnati.

There is a very heavy crime rate in this area, with a lot of it being centered near the bordering English Woods area. There aren't really any places to shop in this community nor places to eat, although there are places not too far away. Overall, this is not really an area you would want to live in or to spend any amount of time in.
