Lafayette Square Reviews
If you like culture, art and having a well crafted lifestyle - Lafayette Square is perfect place for you. Historic Homes, next to one of the few remaining Victorian parks, great neighborhood coffee shop/ restaurants/ and bars few minutes from downtown St. Louis.
My neighborhood is beautiful and historic with a gorgeous park nearby that hosts concerts and outdoor movies during the summer. There are mature trees everywhere, many nearby restaurants and an active community of neighbors. We do get some crime, however; some neighbors have complained of their cars being broken into and we also have to worry about mail theft (packages) once in a while.
Nestled between several bustling neighborhoods, McKinley Heights has a great urban, St. Louis feel. It's very close to downtown, bikable to many nearby hotspots (CWE, Forest Park, Cherokee) and walkable to Soulard, Benton Park and Fox park. Transportation using the main highways is close. People are friendly are the community association is active.
