Walnut Hills. Jan 19th, 2013.

The photos above are from Woodburn Avenue, which is the border between Walnut Hills to the west and East Walnut Hills to the wast. I like to compare the two neighborhoods to a pair of sisters. Walnut Hills is the less attractive, but still pretty in her own right sister of East Walnut Hills.

Burdett Avenue

Aside from that, your new East Walnut Hills pics look stunning! I wonder what that church is with a very tall steeple... that blends in pretty well with the rest of the district, and it seems that it is a natural meeting point for E Walnut Hills. I also like the older buildings (including the Felix), and it's quite fortunate that it does not get a lot of snow!

I nearly forgot to ask: how many bridges are there in Cincinnati that cross the Ohio River? It seems like the yellow arch bridge looks great in its condition. Well done again!
The church is St. Francis de Sales at Madison Rd and Woodburn Avenue. Woodburn is the border of of the two neighborhoods. I'm not sure how many there are within the city limits. In downtown there are aleat 6 in Downtown. The Most famous of which is the Roebling Bridge.

Walnut Hills looks like, to me, an older residential community filled with houses built a long time ago. Definitely not like the suburbia I see here in California nowadays, and I especially like the houses with thin, tall towers reminiscent of the castle towers I see in both real life pics and in movies. It's a place worth checking out for a home, but I think the climate may not necessarily be the best for me.

Splendid shots yet again!

Now that you've focused a bit more on the church, I find it marvelous looking that it makes me want to go walk to there and attend Mass or pray. It looks really wonderful on the outside: it reminds me of smaller churches in Europe that have such intricate designs... And I love the stained glass windows that depict various Christian scenes. All I can say is, the church fits very well with the neighborhood it's in: East Walnut Hills sure is a likely place for me to visit, if not live in. Brilliant shots again!

Splendid homes! Makes me want to get one over there soon when I have enough money to invest... what's the average price of a home there at East Walnut Hills? I'd say those lovely homes may seem to be cheaper than those right here in the San Francisco Bay Area myself... and those are well-preserved too!

Of course housing prices can change neighborhood to neighborhood and blook to block. But according to http://www.trulia.com, the average listing price in East Walnut hills is $272,736. Not bad but out of my price range! lol Meanwhile next door in Walnut Hills, the average listing price is $183.616. But you can find nice homes on decent streets for much less. In Linwood, the average listing price is under $65.000. Judging from the map, the lowest prices are in the western half of the city.
