What area is Commerce Road (where Gnelda becomes 11th and they meet with 7th) considered? I've heard mixed responses that it's on the border of South Louisville and Old Louisville, and one person said it's the eastern edge of the West End. Is there any hard-and-fast delineation as to what neighborhood begins where?

Looking at the Goggle Map it is technically East of 9th St which is considered the West End border by most in Louisville so I would say it is the South End by a hair. It is kinda removed from the official Old Louisville IMO.

Where does the southern part of Old Louisville end? Lee Street? Somewhere on U of L's campus?

that is the park hill housing project. historically the most violent and crime-ridden place in jefferson co.

I'd never heard of "Park Hill."

According to Wikipedia, its boundaries are at Hill and 9th, and Commerce is south of that, but it's still pretty close...

yeah i would stay east of fourth on hill absolutely. further north into old lou you can have nice places up to 8th or 9th st., but definately not park hill. stay away. and the intersection you mentioned is inside the boundaries of the park hill projects.

Oh, I'm gonna start working there, not living there. From what I see, it doesn't look THAT dangerous, but then again I lived in East Saint Louis.

You can see campus from there, although you probably can't once the trees leaf out...
