There are pictures of Louisville all over the net!

http://www.pbase.com/abdulsharif/louisville_kentucky

Be sure you click on the neighborhoods link on that sight, as he has captured quite a few of Louisville's urban neighborhoods. He has also captured parts of the grit on Louisville's west side, which is predominantly an African American neighborhood. I don't think he has pics from a single place outside 264, as he focuses on downtown and the older (cooler), urban parts of the city. So, don't think Louisville suburbs look anything like his pics. To see what Louisville suburbs look like, simply go to your local Olive Garden and drive up and down the road where it is located. All American suburbs post 1980 look the same, so higher end suburbs here will look exactly the same as where you live.

Thank you so much for this link. We live in Manhattan, so I can't go to an Olive Garden's, in fact I don't think we even have one here

Sure you do. There is even one in Times Square and on Avenue of the Americas. But my point is, go to a suburban area 30 miles out in NJ or Long Island, and honestly Louisville suburbs won't look much different, its just on a much smaller scale in KY (and much closer to downtown). Let me know if those pics were what you were looking for, and if not, I can find more for you.

Thanks. I had no idea we had an Olive Garden. I love those restaurants! Anyway, the pictures were a bit of a disappointment. The skyline is beautiful, but I was hoping to something "pretty" and charming. I guess I will have to see it for myself in about 3 weeks when we head down there. From what I have heard, it has to be a more attractive city than those pictures depicted.

Hmm, which ones did you view? The city itself is very urban (of course not Manhattan urban), so if you are expecting Mayberry, you won't find it here. That photographer takes REAL pics of the city and of real people, not some convention bureau type stuff. The blighted areas he takes pictures of on the west side are nothing like you would find in a big city.

If you don't think the Highlands and Old Louisville are beautiful, I am not sure what I can say to you You live in the world's urban capitol...if you are looking to get away from that, there are certain suburb/exurban areas that will be more to your liking.

Actually, I thought the pics of Old Louisville were the nicest. I couldn't get a sense of Highlands. I then went to search on the internet and I saw a nice picture of the library. Again, I have to see it for myself, I guess. While I love Manhattan and think it's actually a beautiful city, we're ready for something different. The only thing that I know that I don't want is an industrial looking city, but I have a feeling that's not the case for Louisville, right?

Here are some collections from Lexington's Herald Leader (so they focus on the Lexington/Bluegrass area):

Thanks nlschr0 -- appreciated especially the picture of Nicholasville Road! Looks beautiful, despite traffic during rush hour!
