I am moving to Louisville and I would like to know if the Shawnee park area is a good safe neighborhood. And also, I have read that Louisville doesn't have very good air quality. Why is that?

Hmmm...Shawnee Park? Some areas right on the river along Northwestern Parkway are generally fine but West Louisville overall has some major crime problems. If you're going to live in Western Jefferson County, consider Pleasure Ridge Park or the Taylor Blvd./3rd Street Road area if you want to be reasonably close to the urban core. These are just old blue-collar, working class communities that aren't particularly flashy but just have mostly nice enough, established neighborhoods.

Louisville's air quality sucks because of the concentration of pollutants from local and nearby factories and coal power plants. Louisville is in a valley with the larger Ohio River Valley, so it can often times serve as a sort of bowl collecting these pollutants. A good rain or the cold winter generally alleviates this problem as far as affecting the most vulnerable, i.e.: elderly, children and the otherwise asthmatic.

Moderator: Can you please move this to the Louisville sub-forum?
