About Broken Sidewalk

Broken Sidewalk covers Louisville, Kentucky.


Broken Sidewalk (BS) is dedicated to the urban realm of the River City, from its neighborhoods to its transportation trends, from real estate happenings to the latest political struggle.  The blog was founded in 2006 as a small site documenting the development of downtown Louisville.  Since then, brokensidewalk.com has grown to cover the goings on of the greater metropolitan region.  We are dedicated to reporting the latest real-estate deal, the most up-to-date project announcements, transportation trends, and all the neighborhood news related to living in our fine city.  We follow the ongoing construction progress of exciting development projects and slip in a little of the latest rumor about the future of the city.


BS is a community interested in the future of Louisville.  We are young professionals, small business owners, independent musicians, medical researchers, architects, students, teachers, and neighbors.  In short, we are Louisville and we are compelled to know what’s affecting our neighborhoods and our lives.
