My sister used to live at this apartment complex and would see drug deals going down from her window.She would hear people arguing and playing music all hours of the night.This shooting among other issues is the reason she moved.That area around there is nasty,and they also have section 8 there.Shively's finest.

What?!I never said there wasn't crime in all areas.But my sister AND brother lived there,and saw drug deals all the time,and would see people fighting in the parking lot and were afraid.That's why they left.I frequent Shively on the weekends,but for you to talk like that to me was uncalled for.VERY uncalled for.Those apartments are right by the Shively line,in case you want to know.

Newspaper report:
Four people are shot, two are dead, and no one has been arrested. It happened last night on Saddlebrook Lane in southwest Jefferson County near Rockford Lane.

Shively's boundaries:

Shively's modern boundaries are roughly Millers and Bernheim Lane to the north (Louisville's Algonquin neighborhood), Seventh Street to the east, I-264 to the west, and Rockford Lane to the south. St. Dennis is to the west, and Pleasure Ridge Park is to the south. The city of Louisville is also to the east.

The apts.appears to be in the Shively area to me.

Lively Shively use to be a great place to raise a family, now on the same path as the westend.

Shively was but now isn't.

The area has nothing to do with it. My cousin and his friend were shot and killed. There's crime all over Louisville. It's a sad situation. I don't think the boundaries of Shively are really necessary to discuss. 4 people were shot on the 23rd. Whether it be in Shively, J-Town, the Westend, Middletown, etc. innocent people are losing their lives over BS!

Lot of these killings are due to drug wars.

I have a problem when you say innocent people are losing their lives.

Not all are innocent, most choose the crime which eventually takes their lives.
They made a choice as we all have the freedom to do, when we make the wrong choices, we have to deal with the consequenses.

As for the area is not important, it is when the majority of crime is committed there.

I do agree with you crime is everywhere but not to the degree we see in some areas.

What im bitching to you about is not whether someone died or there is crime. You said"Shively is naSty" what i say is u dont know nothing baout this area but what u read in the CJ and what u hear on news. And as a man who has lived here for 40 yrs of my life i know the exact boundries and Saddlebrook Apts are not in the City of Shively. And i will gurantee that whatever precious little piece of land that you live in or around has drug deals also.No one can avoid it anymore

Thanks for the invite, do not drink.

I have a sister who lives in Shively and is trying to get out.
She lives near the Krisp Kreme, won't say her street.

I have a friend who moved out, she lived in the subdivision by Butler School, one of the streets is Mary Catherine.

One had to move due to crime and one is trying, could not take the crime going on.

The only thing I like going to the Dixie area is when we go to Mike Linigs, the best fish I have ever ate.We always get off on Dixie Hwy from the Gene Snyder and ride through this area of town.

I hope the crime doesn't go out to Mike Linigs. Love this place.
Is this Valley Station or Shively area?

Well, this is something, you live off of Mary Catherine. This area use to be my hangout when my friends lived there. She had a nice home and was always having people over for dinner or cards.

Sorry, to say your area is getting bad but this is the reason she moved.

Like I said, I grew up in the Preston/Jacob area, which was bad then and still is. I then moved to the westend in the 60's which really was a great place for families to live but no more.

I didn't know Linnigs was a PRP area. Still love this place.
