"Old Ludlow Ave: Peaceful Solace in a Bustling Neighborhood"

I’ve lived on Old Ludlow Ave. (not to be confused with neighboring Old Ludlow Rd.) for the last few years, and I really like it here. It’s a great combination of privacy and convenience. Down the street, in walking distance, you’ll find Ludlow’s business district, full of shops, restaurants, banks, a movie theater, etc. (click here for full reviews of Ludlow: http://www.streetadvisor.com/ludlow-ave-clifton-cincinnati-hamilton-county-ohio), but driving up the winding road and into your own driveway can be a nice relief from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Clifton.

Being located right off of Ludlow has its pros and cons. On the one hand, a quick drive up the street gets you to Ludlow's business district, as I said earlier, but on the other hand traffic can be a downside during morning and afternoon rush-hour. It can be difficult (not to mention frustrating) to get out onto Ludlow.

There aren’t many homes on this street but I do know that there are currently a few for sale. Prices on these homes range pretty dramatically, making it a diverse little section of the neighborhood. Unlike some areas of Clifton, Old Ludlow is also very quiet...this might partially be due to those “quiet neighbors” in the neighboring Clifton United Jewish cemetery, one of the oldest in the city and a very peaceful place to take a walk.

Overall, I think Old Ludlow is a great, family-friendly street to live on. You have highway access to I-71, I-74, and I-75 just minutes away, as well as the convenience that Ludlow Ave. offers. Nearby schools include Cincinnati State (two minutes down the road), the University of Cincinnati (5 minutes away), Fairview German Language School, and an array of Cincinnati Public Schools. Old Ludlow is a safe street with pretty much guaranteed privacy that offers countless urban advantages.
  • Peaceful and quiet
  • Location right down the street from Ludlow Business District
  • Nearby highway access
  • Neighboring cemetery might be uncomfortable for some
  • Traffic can be bad on intersecting Ludlow Ave.
