Located technically in Ohio, but at the very corner of the state, the suburbs of Cincinnati have sprawled out across the Kentucky River into Indiana and Kentucky as well. Not quite as big as some of the other cities like LA, Chicago, or New York, it is nonetheless respectably sized, with a modern metropolis and homes of several businesses. Its location not being one of the premier cities, homes are somewhat more affordable than some of the other urban areas.
There are a number of jobs available in the corporate sector, and Cincinnati also hosts a number of call centers due to the neutrality of the regional accent.
Hot and humid in the summer, cold and snowy in the winter, the climate of Cincinnati touches all the bases in the course of a year, which is much better than can be said of the local baseball team, the Cincinnati Reds, who last won a World Series in 1990.
Like any city, there are a number of restaurants and shopping districts. Ethnicities tend to be blended, though there is a prevalence of people of German and Irish descent. Crime has been on a steady decline in recent years, and most crime in the city tends more towards single operatives, lacking the organized crime of Chicago or New York or some of the other large cities.
Meta-crime, in particular, tends to be low - mostly because most metas find Cincinnati too small-time to be worth the effort. While there may technically be metas of any level in and around the city at any time, those who live there tend to be of low-to-mid tier in terms of power scale.
In any case, Cincinnati tolerates its meta-population, treating them mostly like any other citizen. The people of the city don't have much tolerance for metas who do nothing but wander the streets looking to stir up trouble or save people, so those metas who have made Cincinnati their home tend to be strongly encouraged to "get a real job."
Cincinnati is also home to the gorgeous Newport Aquarium, which is technically across the river in Newport Kentucky, a fact which Kentucky natives are quick to mention but most of the rest of the world ignores pointedly. The Aquarium contains a large number of beautiful underwater tunnels, and is a good place to visit if you need something low-key. |
