Where is the uptown neighborhood located?

Question of the week: Why do posters on Craigslist refer to both Clifton and CUF as Clifton. Isn't CUF easier to type? Is it because Clifton has more positive connotations than CUF?
Thanks for the fantastic photos of one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. I was privileged to visit Cincinnati the last weekend of April and since I truly love historic buildings and homes, I felt like a kid in a candy store. The OTR is one of Cincinnati's greatest treasures and it is so inspiring to see what is happening there. I hope the positive developments in the OTR are contagious and spread over to once-grand but now faded neighborhoods nearby. The fact that all of this is taking place during the midst of a major economic downturn is most extraordinary. During our two-day visit, my spouse and I found Cincinnati to be one of the most upbeat places we've visited in a long time and found signs revitalization in almost every part of town we visited. (and we covered much of the central city from Westwood-Fairmount, St. Bernard, Mt. Auburn, Avondale, Walnut Hills (both east and west) and more. Even in these supposedly neglected areas we saw signs of improvement. We were impressed enough from our visit (and our realtor showed us 7 properties in different areas) that upon the sale of our home in Texas we plan to relocate to the Queen City. Forget all the old hype about the much lauded Sunbelt, the Midwest heartland is starting to come back-signs of that can be found from the White House to the streets of the OTR. Your photos make that point quite vividly, Thanks!
