Thanks for playing Know Your City! Let’s review the questions:

  1. What was the original name given to Cincinnati and what did it mean?
  2. According to the latest Cincy census data, what gender is in the majority?
  3. What unique place in history does The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health hold?

And here are the answers:

  1. The settlement’s original surveyor, John Filson, named the territory Losantiville. The name means “The city opposite the mouth of the river.” It seems that Filson was a very literal person.
  2. Women, but only by 1% (51% women, 49% men)
  3. Mercy holds the legacy of being the FIRST Jewish hospital in the United States, founded in 1850.
