Neighborhood Spotlight: Germantown/Schnitzelburg!

For this week's "Neighborhood Spotlight" we decided to take a stroll through the Germantown/Schnitzelburg neighborhood. All photos were captured with a 50 mm Canon FD lens adapted to a digital DSLR. 

As many can gather from its name, the area of Germantown (stretching from the original Highlands neighborhood to the St. Joseph's and Bradley areas) was mostly populated by German immigrants in the second half of the 19th century. The re-routing of Beargrass Creek into a conrete canal sobered up the land from over-flooding and the subsequent malaria outbreaks. French settlers found their way to this area in the early 1900s, bringing about the name German-Paristown.

Behind The Pearl, there are some incredible tulips in bloom right now! 

This feels like  Norman Rockwell painting...

Oop. Noticed me. 

This massive Japanese Maple on Texas Ave. is really captivating. On average, Japanese Maples grow about 1 foot a year for its first 50 years.

Always nice to see neighbors spreading the positivity! #TogetherKentucky 

Did you know that the red berries of dogwoods are eaten by over 36 species of birds and other animals?

Neighborhood Spotlight Jeffersonville, IN

Jeffersonville City Hall in Quatermaster Station. Originally built as a military warehouse in 1874, Quartermaster Station was renovated in 2001 and currently is home to City Hall as well as numerous storefronts and offices. Fun Fact: Fredrick Law Olmstead helped design the original quadrangle in 1874. 

Appropriately named "Jeff", these red stick figures are located on the berm on 10th st, just next to the quadrangle. They are meant to represent the evolution of Jeffersonville; where they started and where they're headed now. 

Jeffersonville is filled with reminders of its past. The marquees and photos of old cityscapes are a proud reminder of its history. The Vintage Fire Museum on Spring St is a great example of a the city's fascination with historical relics (ie firefighting equipment, vehicles, etc) and aesthetically pleasing creativity. 

The North of Court Ave (NOCO) Arts and Cultural District is a must-see for passerbys.

NOCO loves COLOR!

This water tower was painted by mural artist, The Art Cartel. More of their work can be found in the Highlands...can you guess which one? 

Want to play some giant croquet? Unfortunately the giant balls are a little tough to move, but Preservation Park is a great stop for those looking for a little history!

Historical reminder in Preservation Park. 

Flood Walll. 

The light on the other side. 

We made it to the Ohio! 

It is still surreal to walk around these areas knowing that Derby festivities would be in full swing. We are all very much looking forward to those warm evening walks down by the river. 

Kentucky and Indiana's role in the Civil War and Reconstruction era are both shameful and historically significant. Marquees like this remind us how far we've come and also how much we still have to learn.

Neighborhood Spotlight: St. Matthews

The Burks Family Cemetary is located in the middle of the parking lot between Bed, Bath & beyond and Hobby Lobby off of Breckinridge Ln. Even those who frequent this area often are surprised to find the nearly 170 year old burial plots. The history of this site is fascinating and worth a read. More information can be found here.

Next time you're in the area, see if you can find it!

Ever wonder how long this old bell-tower has been in the area? Not long, actually. Independence Bank constructed this building and opened their doors at the start of 2019. The tower adds a certain kind of nostalgic character to the intersection of Breckinridge and Shelbyville - arguably the heart of St. Matthews and perhaps to the rest of eastern Louisville. 

Even during quarantine, it is tough to find a time of day when this intersection is not buzzing with traffic. 

Roundabouts like these were placed on Nanz Ave to ease the traffic coming between Breckinridge Ln and Cannon's Ln. and to offer relief to bikers not wanting to risk riding on Wllis Ave where there are no sidewalks or stop signs. 

Beautiful architecture and a gorgeously-maintained campus, St. Matthews Baptist Church has long been a staple of the area. Regardless of denomination the sanctuary and chapel are a real treat to visit for visuals alone. 

And here we are! Seneca Park. While it may not technically be within St. Matthews City limits, Seneca Park provides the recereational space we are all in desperate need of nowadays. Hopefully you enjoyed your walk today with Family Realty!

Gov. Beshear Memes Bring Kentuckians Together

Few things have brought Kentuckians together more than the outpouring love and support for our level-headed governor in these uncertain times. Almost better than the 5pm "Beers with Beshear" Kentuckians have created hundreds of memes advocating for the governor.  We decided to compile a list of our favorites!

These cookies were created by Facebook user Taylor VanMeter. Is it fair to say that our our governor is looking like a total snack?

Come on, Slim. You know better. 

From Facebook

Settle down, Hank. This country boy just wants you to survive. 

Who can name this movie?

Let's cut the face-touching, folks!

Kentucky's dogs are seeing an unprecedented amount of walks and pets. Please give them the rest they're used to!

Neighborhood Spotlight: Clifton

For many of us going on a stroll in the neighborhood has become a daily activity. Whether its walking down the street to the local grocery store or just taking a leisurely tour to get out of the house, the nice Louisville weather has been hard to pass up. That’s why we figured we would take you along with us while we visit one of our favorite Louisville neighborhoods: Clifton!

 

The Clifton neighborhood stretches from N Ewing Ave. to lower Brownsboro and Mellewood Ave just east of Downtown Louisville. 

Restaurants and boutiques have been filling this area for the past few decades, revitalizing parts that were previously dilapidated and attracting local artists. Murals like these can be found all over the neighboorhood. 

J. Gumbo's has been a staple of the neigborhood for over ten years. Support your local restaurants by ordering carryout or delivery!

Residents of Payne St. put out a "sharing basket" for passerbys to collect/replenish if they'd like. This house in particular creates displays like these for Hallowee, Valentine's Day, etc!

Vernon Ave has an amazing mix of architecture. 

Sign at the top of the chicken steps at the end of Vernon Ave. A great message for current times. 

The view from atop the chicken steps really reminds you why this area is called Clifton. Carved from quarries that were active up until the late 1800s, the steep cliffs can sometimes be tough to notice when the spring foliage begins to fill in. Originally wooden and used for local resident's chickens, these narrow steps were renovated in 1972 and have since been a great gateway between lower Brownsboro Rd and Frankfort Ave. 

"Doesn't the train bother you?" Is one of the most frequently asked questions for Clifton residents. Luckily Clifton is a "quiet zone" for train horns, creating a need for signs like these signalling to pedestrians on footpaths to watch for trains. As for the trains themselves being a nuisance? "Ya just get used to it" locals will say. 

Community chalk?

Some more positive messages being displayed at Dharma Meghah Yoga Shala  at the corner of Payne and S. Clifton. 

Normally we don't suggest taking pictures on the train tracks but this was a pedestrian walkway, we swear!
