I found I was able to walk, bike, or take lyft/bus most anywhere and ended up driving only once or twice a month. There's so many great places to find and explore just by moving a little slower. Enjoy living in the city.

Loved walking up and down the hills, there's hidden stairs everywhere. Walnut Hills, Prospect and Mt. Auburn, Mt. Adams, all have great places to check out. Loved walking across the bridges, so much beauty to see from above the river. Don't forget to walk around Covington and Newport too, they're right there and have super cool neighborhoods in their own right.

Like someone else said, there's events and parades all the time down there, so there's always something to do.

Edit: Check out this great book

  1. Natural Capitalism - Creating the Next Industrial Revolution. Most businesses still operate according to a world view that hasn't changed since the start of the Industrial Revolution. Then, natural resources were abundant and labor was the limiting factor of production. But now, there's a surplus of people, while natural capital natural resources and the ecological systems that provide vital life-support services is scarce and relatively expensive. In this groundbreaking blueprint for a new economy, three leading business visionaries explain how the world is on the verge of a new industrial revolution.

  2. The Information Diet. The modern human animal spends upwards of 11 hours out of every 24 in a state of constant consumption. Not eating, but gorging on information ceaselessly spewed from the screens and speakers we hold dear. We're all battling a storm of distractions, buffeted with notifications and tempted by tasty tidbits of information. And just as too much junk food can lead to obesity, too much junk information can lead to cluelessness.

  3. Republic, Lost. With heartfelt urgency and a keen desire for righting wrongs, Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig takes a clear-eyed look at how fundamentally good people, with good intentions, have allowed our democracy to be co-opted by outside interests, and how this exploitation has become entrenched in the system. Rejecting simple labels and reductive logic - and instead using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left - Lessig seeks out the root causes of our situation. He plumbs the issues of campaign financing and corporate lobbying, revealing the human faces and follies that have allowed corruption to take such a foothold in our system.

  4. Free: How Today's Smartest Businesses Profit by Giving Something for Nothing. A generational and global shift is at play—those below 30 won't pay for information, knowing it will be available somewhere for free, and in China, piracy accounts for about 95% of music consumption. Anderson provides a thorough overview of the history of pricing and commerce, the mental transaction costs that differentiate zero and any other price into two entirely different markets, the psychology of digital piracy and the open-source war between Microsoft and Linux. Although Chris Anderson puts forward an intriguing argument in this cheerful, optimistic book, many critics remained unconvinced.

>There is such an enormous economic impact to being an NFL city that goes way way beyond whether our team sucks or not.

True, but not in the way you intended.

More often than not, "stadiums and arenas rarely bring about the promised prosperity, and instead leave cities and states mired in debt that they can't pay back before the franchise comes calling for more" according to leading sports economics that study the impact of stadium construction. (Atlantic, 2012)

"NFL stadiums do not generate significant local economic growth, and the incremental tax revenue is not sufficient to cover any significant financial contribution by the city,” said Noll, a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. He has written articles and books and given talks on the public financing of sports stadiums. (Stanford, 2015)

"Hidden costs may include city or county [...] issuance of tax-free bonds that divert investors’ money away from school, road, and mass-transit infrastructure (Hamilton County, Ohio, issued tax-free bonds to fund the stadium where the Cincinnati Bengals play, and has chronic deficits for school and infrastructure needs as a result)." (Atlantic, 2015)

"In a 2015 study, Ted Gayer and Alex Gold of the Brookings Institution concluded, “Despite the fact that new stadiums are thought to boost local economic growth and job creation, these benefits are often overstated. Academic studies typically find no discernible positive relationship between sports facility construction and economic development. Most evidence suggests sports subsidies cannot be justified on the grounds of local economic development, income growth, or job creation.” " (Atlantic, 2015)

I post this whenever I see people hiking in the area, but I just want to make sure everyone realizes the wealth of trails we have in the area.

I made this map of the trailheads for 60 hikes in the area.

These are the trails in the book 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Cincinnati. I just finished all 60 last July, so if you have any questions on them, I'll be happy to answer!

Happy hiking!

u/Gordon13ombay · 5 pointsr/cincinnati

Haha, thanks! No gold needed. If you want to learn more about the subway, I highly recommend checking out Jake Mecklenborg's book:

Jake's an awesome guy who I had the pleasure of seeing the subway with once and who taught me all I know about it.

My wife and I lived a few different places on the west coast while she did travel nursing for a year. I had my mom ship me packets of Cincinnati recipe chili seasoning and would make my own. It's a super easy recipe and it makes your whole place smell like Cincy style chili which is awesome.

6 Pack Cincinnati Chili Mix Packets

Read this book. It's really fascinating, and sheds a lot of light on the situation.

The Charterites pushed out the Republican machine, who was behind building the subway, and when the Charterites (Murray Seasongood) got into power, they canceled the subway to embarrass the previous administration (the machine) by making them responsible for a boondoggle of epic proportions. (Very similar to what Cranley tried!)

If Cranley had succeeded in canceling the streetcar, realize that 80 years from now (if it were spoken about at all) the line would probably be "the city ran out of money building the streetcar".

Edit: It's also interesting to read about the formation of the Charter Party.

If you are looking for other genre books set in Cincinnati, these are a few I'm familiar with.

Have you read Mosaic 17K? It's a cyberpunk book based in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Really captures the area IMO. Good stuff.

Also Queen City Jazz, which doesn't really fit comfortably in a genre. Not really my cup of tea, but might be worth the read. Very surreal. Has kind of a 1970s sci-fi vibe to it.

And the Kim Harrison Hollows novels, which are urban fantasy. IMO, she didn't capture the area at all well. It came across as super generic midwest large city. And she described the town I live in all wrong, not even a little bit right. Possibly the most well known series of books set in the area.

This is a pretty elementary understanding of urban sociolgy. If you're actually interested in the topic, I'd suggest reading up on what some professionals who have spent their lives studying the topic have to say about it. This text is a good start.

u/Ivan_Idea · 1 pointr/cincinnati

My friend (Cincy native) just wrote a book about it. It's really comprehensive. If you're into this sort of thing pick up a copy, he could use the support!

u/OwnManagement · 1 pointr/cincinnati

I actually like it better than the real thing. If for some reason you can’t find it in the store, it’s available on Amazon as well:

u/Hepcat10 · 1 pointr/cincinnati

You should read this book. It will make you a better driver, and make you more accepting to other drivers.

Those people zooming to the head of the line are actually doing it correctly, and (believe it or not) actually helping alleviate traffic.

u/mizary1 · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

There is a radio dramatization of the book out there... it was pretty good.

u/wickintheair · 1 pointr/cincinnati

Curtis Sittenfeld is a native of Cincinnati and set her modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, Eligible, in Cincinnati. Part of the fun of reading it, for me, was noting all the fun Cinci landmarks, big and small!

u/TheGoshDarnedBatman · 4 pointsr/cincinnati

I hesitate to say you should feel bad per se, but gentrification is becoming a major issue in urban areas. It's nice when upper-middle class white people take it upon themselves to "renovate" areas, but the people who were there need to go somewhere.

If you're still on the "the homeless are only homeless because they are lazy" train, let me suggest Nickel and Dimed. It's a great exploration of poverty in the United States, although it's a bit dated now.

u/TwoZeros · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

Use these. Add whatever ground meat you want and tomato paste. It is my current favorite with ground turkey and you can simmer it down to be as thick as you would like.

u/savedbythehell · 1 pointr/cincinnati

I've been reading The Power Broker. It's an interesting look into corruption in government, and public works projects, and it's also very well written. It's a bit long but I'd recommend it.

u/omeara4pheonix · 1 pointr/cincinnati

I saw you went with a case of cans, but for future reference the packets are normally cheaper online. This brand is skyline (the fine print on the back says skytime but the address is the skyline factory in Fairfield on Thunderbird Ln.) and comes out closer to restaurant quality IMO. One packet makes about 4 cans worth of chili.

Edit: Now I see someone else suggested the same idea.

u/loginfliggle · 3 pointsr/cincinnati

Amazon link for those who are interested.

[This book] ( only mentions place in the area - the Oakley Playground in Hyde Park (corner of Paxton and Taylor).

Granted the book is ten years old and traveling basketball players could not possibly hit every court in the area, but thought it was worth a mention.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

Buy these and make your own. Just add water and tomato paste for 6 cups of chili. It's just as good if not better

u/sonoma12 · 1 pointr/cincinnati

We live in Lebanon and 12 wouldn't come in at all. We got the 50-mile version of this:

and now get 12 plus a few others. Granted you sometimes need to reposition the antenna.

u/goneyukon · 1 pointr/cincinnati

We have the 25 mile version of this in Norwood and don't have any issues. You might want to try the 50 mi. version (big guns!) and see if it works:

Not sure about in-person lessons but if you strike out, check out this course. This vocal teacher has taught some top metal vocalists.

u/unlucky_dominator_ · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

Blue packet of seasoning you can find in the same area of Kroger that has gravy mixes and other pre-made seasonings

u/Handeaux · 1 pointr/cincinnati

If so, I highly recommend the book by Linda Fisher & Carrie Bowers. They did a lot of work sorting myth from fact. If you read anything about the old West, you know there's often more myth than fact.

u/crittr · 9 pointsr/cincinnati

I picked up a book called 60 hikes within 60 miles of Cincinnati at REI, it has quite a few places I didn't know about.

u/major_lugo · 4 pointsr/cincinnati

You could order these -

I get them from walmart or Krogers, and personally I think it tastes better than the skyline brand version.

Its pretty simple. Just boil hamburger, add in spice packet.

I also like adding a heaping spoonfull of crushed garlic.

To be honest, you'll probably have a lynch mob after you if you call Cincinnati Chili Chili to people out west. Refer to it as "Hot dog sauce". I like both kinds, but I've noticed people that aren't from this area tend to order a bowl of Cincinnati Chili then get pissed when its not what they expect as "chili". "What the fuck is this shit? Its just boiled meat water!"
