- Madeira has again been ranked the number two suburb in Cincinnati by Cincy Magazine. Data from over 270 villages, cities and townships was collected which included home sales data, crime, property taxes and school districts. Of Madeira, the magazine says "a low crime rate, combined with a strong city school district, keeps the city as one of the area's most desireable places to live." For the entire article please see Cincy Magazine.
