Very interesting article on Louisville and how it stacks up as an urban city:
Elements of Urbanism: Louisville | Metro Jacksonville

Plenty of photos in there as well. I'm learning of Louisville myself...some interesting things I noted:

Quote:
City Population Growth from 2000 to 2008
Louisville: +300,993
That's amazing! 1/3rd a million people...is that right? Other than that, the link just has a lot of interesting photos...

That number is not correct. It counts the merger of the city with the surrounding suburban county. You'll neeed to compare either MSA numbers (probably the more accurate number as it counts metropolitan growth), or the population growth of Jefferson County, KY

Makes sense that it wouldn't be....ah, you can never trust journalists - whoever was the researcher for the Jacksonville newspaper who published it.

Yeah, seemed fairly fantastic, to say the least.
