Hamilton, Ohio is a city just North of Cincinnati called Lil Chicago, Manley due in part to Chicago gang leaders moving drug businesses to the area in the 30’s. The name and title of Lil Chicago is kept alive to this day due to the crime and gang activities on the east side of Hamilton. Other nicknames for this city include ham, h-town, the H and the west side of the city is often referred to as hamiltucky. For those in the city, west and East are often considered separate cities being split by a river with two completely different lifestyles, East consisting of mostly black Americans and Hispanic Americans making little to no income.
I would rather not move to Lil Chicago, nothing but crackheads and violence.
