West End map

West End is a neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, located north-west of downtown, east of Queensgate, west of Over-the-Rhine, and south-east of Fairview.

The historic West End was largely razed in the 1950s as part of a series of urban renewal projects, including the construction of Interstate 75.[1]

The West End is the location of City West, the largest housing development project in Cincinnati since World War II.[2] The project transformed the once low-income area into mixed-income development.[2] In 1999 many of the blighted, cramped buildings were leveled to make way for new townhomes with ample parking.[2] In 2007, part 1 crimes were down by 30% when compared to 1999.[2]

Cincinnati's West End neighborhood contains a large collection of historic properties, including the Dayton Street Historic District.

The West End is served by a branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.[5]
