I think of this area like the Highlands and Cherokee Park when I was renting in my teens and early twenties. Many old mansions are cut up into really magnificent apartments. I would drive around that area and see what you like and look for rent signs. They go so fast! Talk to friends who live in the area to see if anything is coming available. Stop at Ermine's coffee shop and ask them. They see all the people who live there. Craigslist is so full of scams on rentals.

Liz, my office is on 4th and Hill St. I've been in Old Louisville since 2004. Within the limits of Old Louisville, I've only witnessed petty crime- car window breaks and graffiti. Just as the others have said, I feel very safe here. The 4th Division of Louisville Metro Police is a block away and over two dozen of the officers are my personal friends. I've ridden with them throughout the years and witnessed the higher degree crimes outside of Old Louisville. As a rule of thumb, the closer you are to UofL, the higher the concentration of students and higher priced rentals. This is typical of universities across the country. The private market rents will keep just below the pace/ cost of the housing on campus. You can google crime reports from the Louisville Metro government which will show a map and type of crime report taken. ... more
