I'm searching for a neighborhood in Louisville that has recently revitalized or currently undergoing a renaissance? Where are homeowners fixing up old houses and new local businesses thriving? In spite of the tough economy, what are the places with great vibe on the rise?

Butchertown and adjacent areas of Downtown are really thriving with lots of new condos and antique stores.

Around Herr Lane. They just built a new outdoor lifestyle center on the corner or Westport Rd. and Herr Lane and many houses in the area are being remodeled. Most are 3 BR 2 BA brick ranches. Another area that I have been looking at is the East Main/Mellwood Ave area. Lots of new shops and restaurants there and I think it would pay off to get a fixer upper there at the right price.

Default Does Crescent Hill have a good vibe?

What kind of reputation does Crescent Hill have with the locals? Does it have energy? Has the neighborhood revitalization already happened, or is it still up and coming?

It is still up and coming for the most part, I think the area has a lot of potential and people are now starting to realize it more.

It sure as heck is not the Newberg/Indian Trail area. I have seen more police in the past week than I'd care for, also they are now on bikes. The lovely sign that you are being watched by the Metro Police is a nice touch. Just screams I'm in a safe neighborhood.

I'd move, but a four bedroom house is hard to find. Sure you can find them in Portland, but I'd rather deal with the dealers here, than then ones in Portland.

I disagree with the above. Crescent Hill has more than arrived. It is not a transitional neighborhood. It is upscale professional, with young families, young professionals, and empty nesters, and around 65% of its residents over 25 hold a bachelor's degree or higher.. It has a trendy vibe in parts and has great walkability. It shines every month on the fat friday gallery hop.

F.A.T. Friday Hop

That hop is a great way to see the neighborhood alive and well. Keep in mind that the map on that site does not even list every business in the area.


There is so much to do up and down Frankfort Ave. Although it does not have the pedestrian activity of say, Bardstown Rd, it is a very established, upscale area. Some of the homes need work, especially in Clifton, but you need to know what streets are good, and this can only be accomplished by driving them. Personally, I love Peterson, Pennsylvania, and Crescent Streets.

How can you disagree with a question?

I diasagree with your statement that essentially said Crescent Hill was transitional. IMO it is far from it. It is not "up and coming." That would define Old Louisville or perhaps downtown. Crescent Hill is well estab;ished as an old educated, wealthy area.

I just went to that shopping complex on Westport Road and Herr Lane for the first time in about 5 years and was stunned at how nice it was. It almost looks like Disney World! They turned that place from an eye-sore into a palace.
