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 more than a news source; its a dialogue. What makes brokensidewalk.com work is the input from our community of users. This site has been designed to encourage as much interaction as possible. Each post carries your comments and opinion polls track the pulse of the latest hot topics. Our community also helps run the site.
