I'm looking to spend a at least of year of writing and living inexpensively and very simply, without a car and preferably in Louisville. All I need is a nice but inexpensive apartment, greenspace and good groceries.

To those who know the Louisville layout well, please tell me: where can I live that's got 1) inexpensive apartments (~$600 for studio or 1br), is 2) walking distance from trails or a park where you can be surrounded by trees and not see cars, and 3) is walking distance to a good grocery store, preferably with some organic foods. A co op would be even better.

Basically, I'm seeking the greenest part of Louisville. I've lived in NYC and don't need the urban life outside my front door anymore.

Thanks!

Obviously the Highlands (aka Bardstown Rd btw Taylorsville Rd & Lexington Road). Cherokee Parkway would be right up your alley

You have several options, but I think the Highlands would be your best bet. Somewhere around Cherokee Rd and Willow Avenue would be a wonderful location for you.

The Highlands of Louisville, KY USA home page

This area is not urban by NYC standards, but compared to most of America, its very urban, in a good way. Very good transit for a mid sized city with the bus system and absolutely everything you need within walking distance including full service and organic groceries, boutique and clothing retail, local coffee shops and bookstores open late, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a beautiful Olmstead designed park (of NYC's Central Park fame). On that map, I think you will find the Tyler Park and especially Cherokee Triangle subsections most appealing.

You may also try Old Louisville around St James Court and Park Avenue.

Crescent Hill and Clifton would also fit the bill around Frankfort Avenue and Ewing.

Check out those three areas and search for apartments on criagslist. You will easily find what you are looking for, and will probably meet several other artists tired of the mega city but wanting some big city amenities, which Louisville offers.

If you like trees I like Edenside ave as far as how pretty it is, it's in the Highlands and is walking distance to Tyler park and Cherokee park too.
