I've lived here a little over five years. I love it, location wise it's closer to everything I love...the highlands, St James, Nulu, Downtown. And it's changing everyday. It's exciting to see what's growing in this area.

There's a lot of drug use and an aroma of meth. But it's affordable. I live here because it is close to good things and the rent is affordable for a single person without a lot of income. I do not go out at night or walk around my neighborhood. I'm too scared to walk my dog in the park.
The public services in Louisville are great. Anywhere I really need to got o I can just ride my bike or take tarc. The streets are often time full of trash, but the parks remain beautiful! I love Louisville!
