As has every city in America. I dont think it has lost 1/3 since 1970 though. Maybe since 1950. Louisville never even got above 400k by 1950 in the old city (and was listed at 260k in 200), which was a tiny geographic area. If you broke Lexington down into the older parts and newer, you would see the same deal.
