What Your Louisville Neighborhood Says About You (Part 2)

Whether you are repping your hood or trying to forget your old stomping grounds, in Louisville, after folks ask, “What high school did you attend?” they are going to ask where you live, and they want to know your neighborhood. If you’re from the East End, you must have a trust fund and a silver spoon. If you’re from anywhere past Ninth Street, everyone very wrongly assumes that you live in a crime-ridden war zone. If you’re from Germantown, you’re either a hipster or stealing hubcaps. 

We made our own assumptions based on your neighborhoods. If you don’t see your neighborhood on this list, check Part 1. If you aren’t there, your neighborhood is fictional.
