The NuLu (East Market Street) district of downtown has experienced a renaissance of commerce, livability, and activity in the past decade. Previously home to several run-down business with crumbling facades, significant economic investment has helped to bring a boom of restaurants, fair-trade shops, and art galleries to the district, earning the fitting moniker New Louisville, efficiently reduced to “NuLu.” With all of the glamour of downtown living and few of the parking or astronomical costs associated with it, NuLu is an excellent place to cut one’s teeth on the Louisville scene.
