Nick's Guide to Over the Rhine

Name: Nick Neighborhood: Over the Rhine City: Cincinnati, Ohio My Home: Two-bedroom apartment in a historic district Over the Rhine was once the densest area in the United States and has remained largely in tact since the 19th Century. It is now the center of art and culture in Cincinnati and it full of beautiful homes, galleries, restaurants, shops, and theaters. Exploring this area is a must for any visitors to Cincinnati — it has an urban fabric that can be seen in very few places any more. Nick's Guide to Over the Rhine 1. Favorite Neighborhood Home Store
