I am looking to relocate to Lexington in the next few months and would appreciate help with knowing what areas to avoid and what are the best areas to live in, especially since I have a young child.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Like most metropolitan areas, Lexington is economically segregated. The higher income occupied neighborhoods are safer and quieter, while the lower income occupied areas are more shady. The question is, what can you afford? Chances are, if you're priced out of the market when it comes to the "nicer areas", you may find yourself living in a high crime area. So, I could suggest that if you want a nice area to buy a home in Ashland Park, but if you don't have a million dollars or more to spend, my suggestion would be meaningless.

Garden Springs area is fairly inexpensive and, for now, a pretty safe place.

Southland dr area is a dump. Full of old run down or going out of biz shops and places. And houses in the area are old as crap. The kind that still have old yellow or green 1970 appliances in them.
Seriously

Most of the high crime areas seem to be on the north side of town. North of Richmond Road and Norht of Harrodsburg Rd. I would avoid anything on the north side. Try and stay between Richmond Rd. and Harrodsburg Rd.

Also, avoid around Centre Parkway(bunch of projects and section 8) area (near Tates Creek, Tates Creek High?middle), Woodhill area ( off Richmond Rd.), area east of main street (Martin Lurther King, Rose St. and around Transy college.(Hood and has lots of crime).

See Lexingotn Fayette County Sheriff website has a crime map that you can search by address to see # of police calls to that area.

Post name of areas you are looking and I will give you my opinion.

Also, note Lexington traffic can be rough. Nicholasville and Tates Creek are really crowded and slow during rush hour. I live 3.5 miles frm UK and it takes me 30 to 45 minutes to get to work.

We live in Beaumont, very nice, moderate priced homes between 425K-750k, prices go up if you go into the reserve area. No crime, cops patrol all the time.

that's not moderate priced you idiot. That's rich! Moderate decent prices are less than 200,000. I don't see how people afford all that. Only doctors or lawyers

every bit of it. Those are not moderate prices, and you do not live there, unless it's in the apartments or the little houses next to the school.
