Columbus is the biggest city in Ohio- in both population and area (square mileage).
Franklin county (where Columbus is) just moved to #1 as the most populous county in the state.
Columbus Metro Area is not currently the biggest in the state, but... The Columbus Metro Area is projected to become the biggest in the state by 2025. ... more

Marilyn Stowers answered:
Several areas in North Linden is bad. Sorry to be vague, but it really depends on the street, not just the district. It's very important to look at the "crime" details posted on here and like you already did, ask questions. I also have a daughter and we need a safe area to live. I'm also figuring out that just because the houses and area looks does not mean it's safe. Please carefully do your research. Good luck! ... more

Maudine Ormsby

Maudine Ormsby was at the center of one of the most notorious pranks in U.S. college history. In the fall of 1926, Miss Ormsby was named Homecoming Queen at the Ohio State University. Rosalind Morrison won the Homecoming Queen election, but because only 10,000 students were enrolled and 12,000 votes had been cast, it was clear the election had "irregularities". Rosie, as she was known, was named Queen, but being an honorable woman, withdrew when the fraud became apparent. Runner-up, Maudine Ormsby, a mystery candidate nominated by the College of Agriculture but not enrolled as a student, became Homecoming Queen. However, it was the utterly unique Queen that was the greatest irregularity—Maudine Ormsby was a Holstein cow.

Maudine Ormsby was crowned Queen and viewed her subjects as part of the homecoming parade. According to OSU, however, she did not attend the dance held in her honor. Rosalind Morrison Strapp, would joke the rest of her life that her epitaph should read, "But for Maudine, here lies the queen."

I live on Halsey Place and the neighborhood is acceptable. It's really not bad, however Sullivant Avenue is right behind the street and the bars can be a bit noisy. I grew up in the neighborhood and it is very homey and friendly. ... more

Each one of your sensors is a zone. Your front door is probably zone 1. So if your front door is kicked in you will have a burglary zone 1. Your zone 4 could be another contact such as a window that was opened or a motion sensor that went off. ... more

The other poster is correct. There are apartment complexes where some riffraff frequent but the neighborhood itself is ok. There are many families with elementary aged kids and many dog walkers. ... more

If the listing is not on Trulia with a Realtor representing you, the info is drawn from the auditors site and would need to be change with Mr Mingo's office. If you would like to talk to me about taking care of the listing on your behalf I would welcome a phone call. 614-395-2522 As a licensee, I have a great deal of latitude to correct mistakes immediately, and the corrected info feeds from the MLS and My Sites. The correction with the auditor would still need to be made, but you would have plenty of time to accomplish that! Again, 614.395.2522! ... more

Regina Acosta Tobin answered:
German Village is no different than most other Columbus urban neighborhoods. I've lived here for nearly 10 years and have never experienced any problems. However, it's naive to think incidents don't happen -- they do, generally in the warmer months. Most are of the "broken car window" or "garage broken into" variety, not that serious, mostly just aggravating. (Locals know you have to be "city-smart" and not to leave anything of value on their car seat, that's asking for trouble) Of course, there are home break-ins from time to time, but that's true of anywhere in the city. That's the price one pays for the urban experience. People not comfortable with that are usually happier in communities like Westerville or Upper Arlington. ... more

Your best resource for crime statistics is to contact the local police or sherrifs department. Some counties will have a web site where you can get the information. You can also ask a Realtor to provide you with a neighborhood report from the MLS. ... more
