Cincinnati was the first big city to be settled after the Revolutionary War, so despite being deep in the Northwest Territory, it feels more at home along the Atlantic coast in a lot of ways than it does with its surrounding cities. It also tended to have a lot more flamboyant architecture than what you'll find in comparable cities like Baltimore or Philadelphia, and it's one of the few American cities outside of New York that was more tenement-oriented as opposed to rowhouse-oriented, at least initially.
