I will be moving to Louisville, from Virginia Beach, what neighborhoods are lower in crime rate around the metro area. Which ones should I avoid, and which ones can I afford to live in? I don't want to commute to far from the city. Thanks for the help

Do you want urban or suburban? The city as a whole is one of the safest large metros in America, and the violent crime rate is well below VA Beach, which is a similar sized metro area. Generally, almost any area east of 9th street and Taylor Blvd is safe, and even the SW county is very safe and affordable in areas like PRP and Valley Station. The eastern parts of teh city are the wealthiest and most expensive, and much of the south side is similar to the "north" side or Indiana suburbs in that they are very cheap, safe, middle class areas.

There are several very cool, walkable, urban neighborhoods as well. If you are more specific, I can better assist you.

stx12499, I was looking for more of the suburban area that is relatively close to the city. I am originally from NYC and not looking to move back into that type atmosphere where I have to search for parking, pay for parking, etc. However, I would like to be close enough where I do not have to fight to much traffic to get into the city. I am looking for a safe, affordable, quiet neighborhood, just outside the busy part of the city.

Hmm. Well, downtown Louisville and its environs is no NYC, but yes you do have to pay for parking and some of the parking is tight in urban areas around Bardstown Road, for example.

That said, I think the area that you will enjoy will be the I-264 and Brownsboro Road or Shelbyville Rd interchanges. That little area is not too far out, and is quiet, while being only 15 minutes from downtown with no traffic. It is pretty uspcale, too.

Default One thing is very important

What is your budget? From the criteria you have established, there are many places that I would consider suitable in many price ranges. Stx offers you good information, but to narrow it down, your budget is important.

stx. can you recommend a neighborhood to look in as I am coming out there this week to look for places to live with my fiancee. We are looking for something at least a 2 bedroom, we would like a house, but not limited to this for under a 1000 a month. With of course all the criteria I had already stated.

From LaGrange or Crestwood, there is an express TARC (urban bus) route to Downtown. My daughter-in-law loves it
