Glenway Avenue, East Price Hill, Cincinnati

Wow, East Price Hill is up a really steep hill! And again, just like over at Mount Auburn, a funicular railroad gave residents the ability to settle this neighborhood in the Nineteenth Century. I started at the intersection of Warsaw, Glenway and Seton avenues where they merge with Quebec Road.

East Price Hill has been suffering from urban ills lately.

The housing stock is made up of Italianate and Second Empire houses, primarily, which shows just how early this area was settled.

These long streets in Cincinnati that climb up the hills are always so interesting, as the housing tends to be sparse, and they’ll be urban in form despite the surroundings.

I love the garage in the basement below; the whole house is above street grade.

Now we start to really go down the hill to Lower Price Hill!

You can just spot the downtown through the buildings here.

I always am fascinated how the city grew up from a small flat area around downtown up into the hills, making for isolated communities all party of the greater Cincinnati.

    It’s nice to see some more photographs of Cincinnati’s near downtown residential parts. Plus it looks like that blighted area is closer to that city’s Art Deco appearance Union Station than Avondale and Mount Auburn are.
    Despite Cincinnati’s issues, it’s long term residential population losses have been tamer compared other rust belt and Dixie border region municipalities,pittsburghcitypennsylvania,stlouiscitymissouri/BZA210221
