I love the mix of races and cultures.

How about Louisville. Is it mostly white folks segregated from black folks (the way it was in my hometown Minneapolis) or do people mix more?

I like the mixing. I also like slavic peoples. Any slavs in Louisville?

louisville is somewhat "segregated", if thats the term you want to use. A lot of black people live to the west, and immediate south of downtown. I wouldnt go as far as saying the rest of louisville has no black people in it, but they are deffinately not very concentrated in the Eastern and Southern parts of louisville, except for Berrytown in the north-east part of jefferson county.

Louisville is probably the most culturally and racially diverse city in the state, but it is nothing compared the New York or Chicago, but those are much bigger cities. Bardstown Rd., Frankfort Ave, and Melrose Ave are probably where you will find the most culturally diverse people IMO.

If you will choose to live along Southern Parkway, you will get the metro-mix. Nearly every demographical category lives in 40214/40215. Rich, poor, and in-between are there. Recent Euro's (especially eastern), Asians, and peope from generations of every other immigrant (Irish, Scot, German, sub-Saharan and north African's), they are all there.

Tom you are exactly right and this is proven by census data. Just google "American Fact Finder" and use the search tool to get demographic maps of the city.

You don't think there are black people in the Southern Parkway, 3rd Street, Taylor Blvd area? Odd. They seem to find their way perfectly fine in my neighborhood straight to Wyandott park...

South Louisville is pretty "mixed" in my opinion. I live in the Fern Creek area and its pretty diverse here.
