How Over the Rhine is working to remain an inclusive and diverse community


 Over the Rhine, Cincinnati's largest historic neighborhood, has undergone dramatic changes over the last two decades. But while more professionals are moving in, and OTR is now home to several new businesses, upscale apartments and rehabbed condos, a large majority of its residents still live below the official poverty level.
