Vote for Gaslight Property!

It’s time to vote, folks – not for that other race people have been talking about, but something much closer to home. The News Record (the University of Cincinnati’s newspaper) is asking people to vote for the best apartment rental company in the UC area, and clearly Gaslight Property deserves to win. To vote, visit The News Record’s website – – and then scroll down to the bottom, where near the bottom of the page you’ll find, on the left side, an Online Poll for the Best Rental Company. The reasons Gaslight Property is the best rental company include the following:

  • Classic Spaces: Like most cities, Cincinnati has its share of prefab apartment complexes, but Gaslight Property rents apartments with history and character.
  • Experience: Gaslight Property is a family-owned business that’s been part of Clifton for decades.
  • Accessibility: While some landlords seem in absentia, Gaslight Property’s  office is in the heart of Clifton’s Gaslight District, within walking distance (or a very short drive) for many of their tenants.
  • Location: Most of Gaslight Property’s rentals are located in or near “The Uptown Area,” known for world-class education and healthcare. Within minutes you’ll find University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Cincinnati State, Hebrew Union College, University Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital. You’ll find many of of Gaslight Property’s places are pet-friendly, within walking distance of unique shops, locally-owned cafes, an independent theater, and scenic parks. Most also have close access to public transportation.

Annunciation Oktoberfest: Fun For Both Kids and Adults!

The 6th Annual Annunciation Oktoberfest begins Friday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. and will continue through the weekend. The Annunciation Oktoberfest,  of which Gaslight Property is a co-sponsor, has been a hit from the beginning, and although the focus is on having fun, it’s also helped Annunciation School stay in the black financially, which is no small feat these days for a small private school. That’s good to hear, as Annunciation has been a part of Clifton for 100 years. It also has an unusually diverse student body, with 18 different nationalities represented. When I spoke to Alice Derrick, co-chair of this important Clifton event since the first year, I asked her why Annunciation Oktoberfest is so popular.

Constella Trio at Hebrew Union College Sunday, October 7

Cincinnati has long had a classical music scene that’s disproportionate to its size, and the recent addition of the Constella Festival only adds more depth and variety to what is already an embarrassment of riches. At 2 pm Sunday, October 7 the Constella Trio will perform works by the American composers Philip Lasser, Samuel Barber and Aaron Copeland. The trio of Tatiana Berman, Yael Senamaud and Ilya Finkelshteyn will feature Julie Spangler on piano, and the performance will take place at the Scheurer Chapel at Hebrew Union College.  The concert is free, and the opportunity to hear Twentieth Century chamber music on a Sunday afternoon sounds sweet. It’s also an opportunity to find out more about the Constella Festival, whose website can fill you in on some of their other upcoming events:
