Can anyone tell me anything about the Newburg area? My wife and I are relocating to Louisville and we are looking for an decent area to rent in. We don't want to buy just yet until we get used to the area. We are looking for a 3-4 bedroom house or apartment in a nice family neighborhood. Any help would be gratly appreciated since we do not know anthing about the Louisville area. Thanks !!

Newburg Road is nice...north of I-264. However, the neighborhood known as "Newburg" which is south of the Watterson (I-264), is one of the only suburban ghettos in the city and should largely be avoided.

Default Proceed with caution

Newburg South of the Watterson is not bad if you like gunfights, you have access to body armor, your rental property includes an underground bunker. You hire a Personal Security Detail to escort in and around your neighborhood. Your rental propery includes a security fence with three strands of concetrina wire. If you like to smoke or get high I highly recommend this area, other than that I don't see any downside to Newburg.

And I might start with the St. Matthews area. Lots of rentals there. The others may be a little far out for them. (I live in the Middletown/Pewee Valley area and love it -- and there are some affordable rentals there at this time. Just wonder if that's not too far to go for them, depending on where he is working.)

the newburg neighborhood isn't that bad. if you're looking for trouble, you can find it. there are no gangs or anything like that. it is mostly an older person's neigborhood & nights are fairly quiet. sure you have your havenots, but it is mostly a working class neighborhood. some people may not have, but they do go to work. i have lived here my whole life & sure the neighborhood has been used as the dumping ground to empty out the torn down projects & place them in our neighborhood, but that's ok. too.
