Best city in the world! (for me?) - 9/26/2020
Of all the places in this country, I have decided to move to St. Louis. It just seems like a wonderful place to live and call home. I found the cutest loft downtown for $100k, right in the heart of Washington Ave. It is right on top of the coolest bowling alley I have ever seen (flamingo bowl).

I am the world's biggest baseball fan and now I can walk to "baseball heaven" in less then 15 min. I go to Catholic church a lot and downtown has two of the most beauitul churches anywhere! They are Vatican city Rome nice. I can take evening walks right down my street to historic Leclede's landing or the casino, I got my own national park 15 mins walk. If I walk the other way the most awesome fun museum ever (city museum) and the fox theater. Walk the other way, Enterprise center and opera house to watch some world class hockey and cultural events.

Free (and gorgeous) public library .2 miles away, sculpture parks, historic courthouse, the most awesome train station Read More

Sad City that Could be Great - 9/6/2020
I've lived here and keep coming back for family. This city could have been great and is changing but has been a ghetto for some time. The crime is high; property values depressed. Family bought a home in a gated neighborhood (3 story historical mansion) for $350k. You can barely get a townhome in Colorado for that price. There is a reason.

1. Food. Way better than Denver. Ted Drewes, Rigazzis, it is the home of the toasted ravioli. The Italian market with the greatest coffee in the country. There are a ton of good brunch places.
2. Parks. Like Denver, this city loves its parks. Forest Park is great. A new greenway is going up over the former projects (why you shouldn't do anything St. Louis does for black people is in the cons section and [hint] it was racism)
3. Museums and Culture. Not on par with Chicago which is better than DC when it comes to museums but pretty great. You still have the Dread Scott courthouse (Seeing the theme yet), Arch, old Read More

You Can't Gloss Over The Bad Aspects Of St. Louis - 8/7/2020
8/7/20 I left St. Louis, MO (University City) in 2006 and haven't looked back. It continually becomes more dangerous to live there. Property taxes are high. Traffic noise is unabated.  Read More

St. Louis : A Renaissance City - 4/28/2019
St. Louis is a city on the brink of becoming great again. I’ve been a resident of St. Louis since 2001, living just about every where (North County, St. Charles, South County), but now make my home in the beautiful Benton Park neighborhood of the City of St. Louis. The city gets a bad wrap for crime, but people fail to realize that crime happens everywhere! The media sensationalism is ridiculous. I feel safe, my wife and 2 daughters feel safe. In relation to violent crime, if you go looking for trouble, you’ll probably find it.

St. Louis has ton of free cultural things to do, with more amenities being built as we speak. It’s a great place to raise a family in that regard. Schools are ok, better if you can get your child into a magnet school, if you live in the City. My philosophy on schools is that teachers don’t show up daily to not teach children. There is a degree of learning that has to happen at home to make your child successful, so I don’t typically fall into the Read More

Undiscovered Gem - 2/11/2017
So much culture, either completely free or very low cost, and of a quality that you would expect in a much larger city. Major food city, James Beard award winners every year, crossroads of cuisine types. Huge theater scene. Botanical Garden one of top 3 in the world. It just goes on and on. Many lovely neighborhoods in the city and in the inner ring suburbs. People are SO friendly. Inexpensive. What's not to love? Read More

ST Louis is The worst place to live. EVER!!!!!!!!! - 7/27/2016
ST Louis is The worst place to live, especially if you have young children. Your children 3+? you Ok, but there is only so many times you can go to the zoo, Magic house or museums. 0 to 3.. NOTING to do at all!!!!! Summers are so horrible hot and hummed that you fell like a prisoner. Another this is Electricity black outs. LOOOONG ones too. 24hous + min. During the summer or winter. OMG. Can you belie it? In this day and age St Louis till runs on steam!!!!Violent weather, tons of bugs .UGH
People: All stairs.... What school did you go to.???? Who cares. They are born and almost never get out .The only few people that move around see that there is better life out there. Its is NOT in St Louis. Sorry. Read More

St. Louis City - 4/13/2015
Best kept secret. Incredibly affordable and accessable. Beautiful neighborhoods with tree lined streets and quality historic brick homes. Art galleries, theatre and live music is more than abundent. World- class universities (over 20 colleges in the city). I doubt that there is a city in the U.S. that can match the cost of living, conveniences & amenities of St. Louis City. Read More

Saint Louis - 11/4/2014
Saint Louis sucks for black people. Yes, a lot of places sucks for black people, but Saint Louis really sucks for black people. If you are young, black & educated, I don't really think I need to advise you not to move to the STL area, but in case you didn't know..don't move to the STL area. The racism here is just along the lines of uncomfortable & altogether stupid. Also, if you are a single black female, especially over the age of 27, finding a half-way suitable mate is next to Read More

The St. Louis METRO area is not No 1 in crime - 11/1/2014
The St. Louis METRO area is not #1 in crime, not even close. Crime stats are being reported for the St. Louis City only and then compared to the metro stats for everyone else. That is comparing apples to oranges. Anyway- St. Louis Read More
