Hi,

We are moving to Louisville shortly, and I'll be working near Bluegrass Pkwy & Blankenbaker Pkwy intersection (zip 40299). Can someone suggest me safe neighborhoods and apartments within 10 or 15 minutes commute to my work? I'm looking for an apartment (rent upto $1000 for 2Bed/2bath) with washer/dryer in unit.

I found few apartments in S Hurstbourne pkwy near I64 that are close to grocery stores, target, walmart etc. But when I checked spotcrime.com, I felt that area has lot of crime. Is that a safe location? Which all are the areas I should avoid? I like to live in a calm and quiet area, but may be within few minutes drive to major stores and less commute to office.

I'm not worried about school districts as I don't have school going kids. Please help me with your suggestions.

Thanks!!

You will be safe most anywhere in 40299 and surrounding zip codes. I would suggest your greatest threat will be auto accidents as the area is extremely bizzy and congested.

Yeah, that whole area is just safe, generic suburbia.

Agreed. Extremely boring but very safe. I very closely considered moving there before deciding on nearby St. Matthews, which is closeby and a good option as well.

Thank you all for the inputs!

Any particular comments about Hurstbourne Acres or Plainview area and the apartments around? I shortlisted few like Willows at Plainview, Plainview etc. Major stores are close by, so thought that would be a good choice provided its safe too. The zip codes are 40220, 40222, 40223 etc.. Any thoughts??

Hurstbourne, Plainview, St. Matthews are what I consider to be some of the safest neighborhoods in
Louisville.

Once again, if renting, always live as close to squaller as you can stand. There is no benefit to a rental except a temporary roof over your head. Save your money for a larger downpayment to own a home or condo. You'll be glad you did.

Until you're ready to move and stuck with a condo you can't sell because nobody wants them in Louisville.

Thank you all for your comments. This has been really helpful for me to decide!

I am moving there temporarily, so buying a house or condo is not in my list right now. I'll need to move to another location as and when my job demands.. So for the time being, I'll be renting an apartment.

Thanks again!
