Living in Cincinnati

Cincinnati’s remarkable historic architecture once earned it the nickname of the “Paris of America.” The city’s Over the Rhine neighborhood is still home to spectacular landmark buildings, some of which have been converted in to luxury apartments.

Metro runs bus service in the city, across the river to Covington, Kentucky, and an express line runs from downtown to Kenwood, to the north. The historic Andersen Ferry makes a short trip across the river to Hebron, Kentucky, a few times daily. The Cincinnati Bike Center provides secure parking for downtown bicycle commuters at Smale Riverfront Park.
