Hi all,
I'm still pretty new to the Louisville area. I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little about the area near Colorado/Industry Avenue. Basically, to the side of U of L and down from Churchill Downs.

I'm looking for a 2 bedroom apartment or house for a reasonable price that allows pets and a place is located over near there, but we're just not sure about the area.

Anyone know or have experience?

Or if you have any idea on apartments/houses that may work better, that'd be great!

Thanks!

It is not a good area. Look further north and east. Also further south. Beechmomt, Germantown, Downtown, old louisville, highlands crescent hill are much nicer and safer

This is another consideration you may have depending on the zip code you may end up paying higher car insurance. Some other suggestions are Fern Creek ,Hikes lane area and Okolona .

That's definitely a cheap area, but not safe at all. I would not live there. I would look more east, although the east end is a bit expensive. It really depends on your income.

It's ghetto.

What are you looking for? Budget? What's important in a place? Etc...

West and South of campus is NOT good. East and North of campus is generally good and safe. Most students live in southern parts of Old Louisville or along Eastern Pky.

I agree. The area is improving. It is a lower middle class area with some scattered lower income poverty ridden areas.
