The above map breaks down the streets of Louisville, highlights a percentage of Louisville gangs, and breaks down the history of Louisville’s urban neighborhoods.
Over the years, the city of Louisville has had multiple well-known neighborhoods throughout the city, with the heart of the Louisville hoods residing west of South 9th Street in the city’s West End, which expands from the Portland neighborhood, north of Market Street, to the Park Duvalle community, the former location of the infamous Southwick Projects.
Across town is a much smaller section of the city, known as the East End, or the East Side, which is mainly two separate areas, Smoketown and Shelby Park, as well the two former housing complexes of Clarksdale and Shepard Square, both now demolished and rebuilt into smaller apartment complexes.
While the East Side and the West End are the main sections of Louisville, with the West End being the largest, there are other sections of the city, like the South Side, once home to the former Iroquois Homes in the Hazelwood neighborhood, or the large area of Newburg, just east of Louisville’s International Airport.
