Hi all,

Can you tell me what are the nicest/safest areas to live in the downtown Louisville area? It can be condo, lofts, apts. or homes since I haven't decided whether to rent or buy. I do not live in Kentucky yet so please be specific if you can. I don't want to live in a high rise though. Also any parks, trees or water with walking trails is a plus because I have dogs. You can mention any property by name and I can check if they take pets. Thanks.

These are my favorite...
Fleur de Lis on Main | 502.582.8545
Louisville Lofts and Condos » Park Place Lofts
Condos & Lofts in Downtown Louisville, Ky: The Mercantile Gallery Lofts

This website just gives you an overview of projects going on downtown...
Downtown Projects - Downtown Development - LouisvilleKy.gov

If I was to live downtown, I would want to live in the area bounded by Preston St. to the east, Witherspoon St./River Rd. to the north, Market St. to the south, and 5th street to the west. IMO this is the best part of downtown and it is close to Waterfront Park, 4th St. Live!, The Kentucky Center, The Belvedere, Louisville Slugger Field, the Louisville Science Center, the Slugger Factory, Glassworks, and lot of other attractions, restaurants, and shops. I think Fluer de Lis on Main is in a really great location.

40202, hope you find some good places. Parts of Old Louisville are nice, like St. James Ct., I believe that is area code 40203.

I think it is actually 40208. 40203 and 40208 unfortantely contain some very bad areas west of 7th/9th street corridor that drag down the zip code stats. But Old Louisville is perfectly desirable. I would also look at the lower ends of the 40204 and 40206 zip codes. 40206 includes parts of Butchertown, Clifton, and Phoenix Hill, and 40204 contains the Original Highlands, Cherokee Triangle, parts of Irish Hill and Paristown Pointe.

Are you talking about downtown or Old Louisville? 40208 does contain part of Old Louisville as well, my bad, 40203 is the northern part of Old Louisville, closer to downtown, and yes that zip code does contain parts of the undesirable west end, do not look for homes there.
