Please be more specific. How did you choose Louisville? What type of home do you want? Are you looking for land? An old or new home? How much time will you spend at this home? Do you need to be near city amenities? All the listed areas are very nice and attractive.

I do give you greeting in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ,I am try to find a pen pal that do have wisdom in advise that will help encourage the weak and depress individuals I myself I like helping people I am disable ,but I do know that God is very kind to all people and he will never leave you nor forsake you.I am here for just one thing and it is to encourage the under believers, there some individuals that is just there to pull the people down .We that is strong are to help in giving good advise were it may be needed.I don't really gather in groups with people because If you continue to keep on gathering with people with are trays of background you may sometime pick up their habits I would rather be a door keeper in the house of God than dwell in the house of the wicked. So if you are a God fearing you may contact me on line anytime. So may God bless you in everything you may do in life .please remember Let God be your guide Proverb 3:5-6

"Its the New Orleans section of Louisville where trash floats across the streets, alleys are filled with beer bottles,..."

Colonel, it should be obvious but the reason Bourbon Street in New Orleans looks and smells like it does is because of people who don't live in New Orleans visiting and behaving in ways they wouldn't at home. Then they turn around and verbally trash the city.

Hi

I will be working in Scottsburg. I am moving to Indiana from Cali. I am looking for a 1 bhk or 2bhk at max with a budget of $550-650. I am looking for a place in Southern Indiana or Louisville. I wouldn't like to drive more than 30-35 min to work. I have posted my entry in Indiana forum as well.

What are the safe areas to live in Southern Indiana( New Albany/Clarskville/ Jeffersonville) and Louisville. Id like access to all basic amenities like grocery, food, gym and a movie theater.
Thanks for the help

Default Moving...huge change.. any RN's out there?

Hello Louisville. My name is Jennifer. I am a 37 year old who has been a RN for one year. Eight months ago I moved here, fleeing from a abusive partner/father (baby). No worry's anymore with that, he is in prison for 10 years. I was living and working in Fort Wayne Indiana. My two boys will be 12 (Kaleb) and 2(Noah) this spring. Although Kaleb's grandma lives close, and we are in one of her rentals, there are no jobs here in Michigan. The hospitals are on a hiring freeze and the market is flooded with applicants. Job cuts took my job that I had and I cannot find another one.

Kaleb's dad and grandpa are in Louisville right now. We all have a distant relationship. They probably will not be there long term but at least it is someone we know there.

Louisville has many hospitals, even a magnet hospital. I want to make a home and a career there. The city looks so FUN!! If I could get a job at a good hospital that would be awesome. I do not have a job yet but have started to apply. From what I can see on a map, it looks like there are two areas where the hospitals are. Regardless, it looks like their are 13 hospitals within 20 miles. I am curious what the pay is for an RN. If the cost of living is less in Louisville is the pay less as well? BTW, I got paid about $6 less a hour here in MI and the cost of living is more..than when I lived in IN. This state sucks!

I have been looking on renthouses.com and the housing there is pretty inexpensive. It looks like I can rent houses for pretty cheap. I need a three bedroom house and spend 800-850. I would need a place in a safe/clean neighborhood. It would be nice if we could live in a neighborhood that has kids so my boys would have someone to play with. Want a house with a yard, room to run and play. I dont want to live in a cookie cutter neighborhood. I want some space and be unique. No housing developments or complexes...not sure if our terms are the same. Park close by or something to do if possible. I live in the country (rural) now but it is the first time and I do not like it. I want the store and shops to be close by. I dont want to live downtown.

My older son would love to be able to walk to school. He loves the school he is in currently but hated IN schools. The public school website says the total student body is 97,000 in Louisville. That seems like a very large number. My son is currently in the 6th grade, middle school. If private schools cost money, then he would need to attend public schools at first. He is a good student and has always attended Caucasian schools.

Guess that is it. Work your magic Louisville. Your city is so beautiful, I hope I hear back something about a job soon.

ANy RN's please give your advice.

There are actually three major concentrations of hospitals and 19 hospitals in the Louisville metro area. Do not forget that the Louisville MSA incudes southern Indiana, and there are very nice hospitals both in New Albany and Clarksville just minutes from downtown.

That said, the major hospital collections are in downtown, St Matthews, and the Summit area near I-265. Norton, Jewish, and Baptist, the VA, and University are the major healthcare players. All of them are among the largest employers in the metro. Health care is the number one inustry in the city after logistics and it is emerging as a healthcare center for the south and midwest. There are RN jobs everyone. Literally.

As for the living situation, you belong in an inner ring suburb, likey St Matthews. Its "downtown" is fairly dense and walkable with tons of neat shops and outstanding dining. I would look close to the intersection of Shelbyville Road, Brekenridge Lane, and Chenoweth Lane. Any of those neighborhoods are 100% safe, offer nice 3 bedroom rental homes for around 900 in established, tree lined streets, and even have decent sized yards for the city area.

I would also look at the Highlands specifically around Cherokee or Seneca park. The closer you can get to these parks, the better. Trust me, you will not be dissapointed. The city is a gem, just do not let the secret out to fast or the sprawl that has consumed Louisville's neighbors to the south (ie Charlotte, Nashville) will consumed her as well.

You will hear horror stories about the school situation. Some of it is true, some of it is not. I would call JCPS and do my homework first.

For a list of all hospitals, google "Business First Louisville." Call them and ask about buying their "book of lists." It lists hundreds of vital info about the area from the largest employers, largest hospitals, to largest salons and conractors.

Also, if you contact the Courier-Journal, they will send you a free relocation guide. Ditto for the chamber of commerce.

The city's website won an award as the third best website in America. use it:

See my post in the Indiana forum. I believe the Charlestown Road corridor north of I-265 (part is in New Albany and part Sellersburg, part unincorporated) is ideal given your situation.
