Hi everyone,
This forum looks like a life saver for me!!
I will be moving to Louisville in a few weeks to start working at the University of Louisville hospital at 550 S. Jackson and Jewish hospital.
I am moving from northenVirginia. I will be frequently on call for work and I will have to live maximum 20 minutes away from the hospital.
I am looking for a safe clean area. I like working out and I like to live near by to a clean gym with easy parking. I would like to live in an area with near by grocery stores, dry cleaning and restaurants. since I am moving from northen Virginia, I am used to expensive rental apartments, I am willing to pay up to $900 for a nice one bed room rental apartment.
I would greatly appreciate it if you share your experience with me guys!

welcome. i work at u of l hospital and workout at the u of l gym which is located in the chestnut st. parking garage. if you're doing residency this gym is free and while not the biggest, it has everything except maybe a pool and the price can't be beat!

i would suggest the highlands hands down. this area is roughly from the end of east broadway down baxter/bardstown rd until taylorsville rd. it's close to work, is the most walkable area in town, has a huge park in cherokee right in the middle of it, and more to do than anywhere else. it's also very safe.

you will find rents here to be very cheap comparatively and $900 should get you something very nice in the highlands. i would focus on cherokee triangle or deer park, my two favorite nabes in the highlands.

if you have any other questions feel free. happy to help.
what will you be doing at u of l?

There's also a new development called Liberty Green you might check out. It's sandwiched right between the hospitals and NuLu, Louisville's hottest, trendiest, growing neighborhood. If I worked at the hospitals, I'd take a serious look at it.

I'm from Northern Virginia myself. I don't think you'll need to shell out $900 to get a nice place here. I'd take a long look at the Crescent Hill or Clifton neighborhood. I also love the Liberty Green suggestion, although I hear there is a long waiting list.

Depending on what kind of neighborhood you're looking for, Saint Matthews may fit your bill nicely. It's well within the distance you're talking about, has many nice rentals, both apartments and homes and as several very nice gyms including Milestone. Milestone is hands down the nicest facility like that in the area was every kind of exercise equipment and class you can think of. They also have several indoor pools!

I'd avoid Highlands as it's a haven for hipsters and the homeless. St. Mathews and Clifton Heights is much better, less hipsters.

Second. I actually like the Highlands neighborhood because once away from Bardstown Road, it's easy to escape the hipsters. But I get what you're saying; I live near SF and Oakland now and have become easily annoyed by hipsters, many of whom are pretty self-righteous.

To think that they're the future of America is scary; at least the hippies produced great music, just wanted to have world peace and smoked a lot of pot. But the hippies also gave us Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Paul Allen, and, indirectly, The Beatles.

Most or many apartments that have Gym's
allow you to use them 24 hours a day.
I suppose how good the gym's are would vary from place to place.

Lots of places to look for Apartment complexes in Louisville, but I think
many apartments in the Highlands are more privately owned rather than complexes.

st. matthews has an incredibly high self-opionion of itself and quite an eliteist attitude, imo. not saying everyone there is a stuck-up jerk in a beamer, just that there are a lot of stuck up jerks in beamers there.
and btw, i think clifton is far more shady than the highlands when it comes to less than upstanding citizens walking the streets. I like clifton, a lot, but to paint it as a safer area than the highlands doesn't really ring true to me.

the highlands is also full of md's, lawyers and other white collar people who happen to be cool and don't think they are better than everyone else.
