Cincinnati Hood Map Breakdown
Explore the Cincinnati hoods in the heart of the city’s Downtown, home to the Linn Street (West End) and Over the Rhine areas. Formerly recognized as one of America’s most dangerous areas, this urban hub stretches from I-75 to Reading Road along Liberty Street. A tour through this map showcases the transformation that has taken place over the years.
Located north of the Downtown are some of Cincinnati’s oldest and most reputable neighborhoods, including Corryville, Mt. Auburn, Walnut Hills, Evanston, and Avondale – the largest in the city. These communities have a a long history dating back to the early 1900s and continue to be active in the community despite ongoing gentrification of the Cincinnati ghetto.
Heading west across I-75, you will reach the West Side. This large section originated in the Cumminsville neighborhood and slowly expanded all the way to Westwood. The West Side is predominantly occupied by apartment buildings and housing complexes. Although neighborhoods such as English Woods and Cumminsville’s housing complexes are mostly a thing of the past, the heart of the Cincinnati ghetto in the West Side can be found along streets like Harrison, McHenry, and Queen City.
The North Side, which has been expanding in the black community since the 1970s, is a large area with Cincinnati hoods like Brick City’s Winton Terrace, College Hills, the apartments of Mt. Airy, and the suburb areas of Mt Healthy, Finney Town and Forest Park. The most known and iconic has been Lincoln Heights. Nicknamed Zone 15, Lincoln Heights is a city of its own and has been around for generations.
