Hi-Pointe Reviews

My wife and I love the neighborhood, our original set of neighbors were mixed 50 good 50 not bad but not good either, most of the "meh" neighbors have moved out and with each move a new young couple or person has moved in and done a lot of work on their house and property. This has added a friendlier group on our street and corner. Furthermore, in all directions, there is Forest Park to the North, Tamm bars, microbrews, and restaurants 1/2 mile to the East, McCausland Restaurants, grocery store, and 2 movie theaters within a mile to the west, and the Grove and Maplewood are not far away to the South.

I think that, overall, it's a great place to live and a great location in general. Cars get broken into occasionally, etc., but overall it's full of young professionals who want an affordable place to live that provides access to the city and Forest Park but doesn't require a long commute.
The community is okay. There are a lot of things to do, but there's not a strong sense of community and people move quickly or stay forever.
