I havent been down there in a while and havent really been in the area much in my life but yeah I think it is a pretty rough area. But if you go to UofL or something I guess it would make sense, and no part of Louisville imo is really that scary besides maybe the west end or newburg. Cresent Hill, Clifton areas are pretty cheap and theres a ton of students down there if thats your situation.

I spent a bit of time in that area when I lived in Louisville. You can tell it's gritty but my friends who live down there say it is pretty tolerable save for a incident on occasion.

it's rough. it's not the bronx or south central rough, but it's not a great area. lots of better options for the same cash.

That area is about as rough as it gets.

First of all, nothing scary about newburg. Second, taylor blvd is decent. Especially if your directly on it. My sister used to live out there. I think the closer to kenwood area, its fine. Mostly everything from iriqouis park to walmart. Theres ghettoness the other way and beyond walmart is super portland, i mean fairdale.

Im not talking about newburg road off of the watterson, i'm talking about the areas considered by the hoodlums who live there as "newburg". Old Sheperdsville Road between Newburg and Poplar Level, Rangeland Road at Poplar Level, Indian Trail at Poplar Level, etc., thats "newburg". And yeah it is very rough, about as rough as it gets in this city. If a normal white person moved into a house right in the middle of any of those above areas his house would be broke into at some point you can gurantee that..The taylor blvd area is just alot of trashy white people but I dont think they would break in your house. Still having to go to a kroger's over there, or any gas station would be gross.

AVOID!!

South of Iroqouis Park has some nice areas but based on the news reports and my time living in Old Louisville I'd avoid anything off Central Ave and 7th/ Taylor Blvd. It's not Compton but you could do much better.

We live in the Wyandotte neighborhood. It's is located between Taylor and Southern Pkwy with Longfield Ave. to the north and 264 to the south. We have never had any problems with crime in this area. I'm a stay-at-home mom with a toddler and I feel perfectly safe. The neighborhood is rough around the edges but there isn't much crime around here. I would look in this neighborhood rather then central and Taylor which is a bit rougher. We bought our house for $75,000 and that was one of the higher priced houses so it's very affordable. Good Luck!
