No the West end... lol j/k... I live in New Albany on the Indiana side actually but its basically Louisville...

The city actually isn't that terrible, the weather isn't too great, but the main thing I don't like is I'm a huge sports fan and we have 0 major professional sports teams (like MLB, NBA, NFL, etc.) and I just want to move somewhere else that does.

The Cards aren't bad to watch but I just want some pro stuff other than minor league baseball.

Ok, so say we build a downtown arena and get a pro team...would you stay (read J bruce Miller's new book, Airball)? I think this city has a lot to offer that others dont. Mainly it has everything you need without the traffic, hassle, or high prices. I dont think pro sprts is the end all be all. It just pisses me off that we have Indy working against us to get the team. Also, we had an ignorant mayor and leadership, cheap taxpayers, and a backward governor. Still more, we missed the team bc Pitino and his University of Louisville arsenal would never allow it.

We aren't going to get anything, if we ever did it would be the NBA but I want a city w/ NBA, NFL, MLB and possibly NHL and the day we get all of that in Louisville is the same day I land on the moon...

8/10.

Louisville has one of the best skylines of any city its size and the pictures on here give the city absolutely NO justice. The view from the Indiana side is the absolute ugliest view of the city. When driving from 65 south, The Aegon Center looks almost deformed until you get close and see how really tall it is and how well it works. Eh, oh well.

Very nice during the day and pure eye candy at night. The Aegon Center is one helluva signature tower. My only complaint is that pair of twin towers with the Churchill Downs-slash-pagoda cupolas on top. To me, twin buildings are much more aesthetically pleasing when they're taller and thinner. I give Louisville a 9. It's not the biggest skyline, but the buildings really work beautifully together!

I'm originally from Raleigh, and I have to say, I was very impressed by the Louisville skyline the first time I came to Kentucky. I fell in love with Humana when I first walked under it's atrium and the Aegon Center is amazing at night. The purple bridge lights and the purple roof of LG&E are also great accents for the night time skyline. Louisville has become one of my favorite mid sized skylines. 8/10

not too much density for a City of its age, but the river and the bridges are awesome. I'd give it a 7

Here are a few pictures to get a better feel of the spread for Louisville's skyline.

This one is from waterfrant park and just barely cuts out the Aegon center. This same situation causes for some very obnoxious views when looking at the skyline from the east because the downtown is on a grid, making the skyline appear to have bad gaps.



This is actually during some flooding early this year.




I wanted to show this picture because it offers a great look at Preston Pointe, the poined building in the right of the photo.









Most of these pictures I got from this gallery -http://www.pbase.com/soulbrotha4620/downtown_louisville_street_scene
which has a huge collection of downtown pictures all taken by Abdul Sharif. Check it out if you're wanting to see some of the great mainstreet architecture and such.

Hmm well the picture died for me, so if you can't see them, this is his page to a myriad of fantastic skyline pictures!
