Q.Can you identify this vine in this picture?
I live in an apartment building and behind it is a woody ravine. Outside my window is the vine in the pictures.
I carefully cut off a few pieces for pictures and tried to take a picture of the vine without touching it just in case it is poisonous.
I live on the second floor and the back is not accessible to me so I hope you can see them.
I want to know if it is poison Ivy or another vine and the name of it if you recognize it. Thank you.

It definitely is NOT poison ivy, which has three leaves in a group and this vine has five. I believe it is Virginia creeper, a common vine in the U.S. I looked through the photos of this Ohio University guide to weeds and it looks like Virginia creeper, which turns bright red in the fall.
Here is the Ohio guide I referenced:
