I'm a homeowner in Skinker-Debaliviere and I really like it. The nightlife in the Loop is incredible. I am steps away from dozens of bars, several concert venues, and a bowling alley. The area is filled with restaurants of all different nationalities, and you can hear a lot of different languages walking down Delmar. I bought a condo as a single young professional, and it was affordable, especially when you consider how close I am to these great amenities.

It’s easy to be healthy here. I am walking distance to an international grocery store, and there's a traditional grocer about a 7-minute drive away. Forest Park is practically my backyard. My gym is a 15-minute walk from home.

The major drawback for me is crime. The neighborhood deals with a lot of aggravated assault, robbery, and larceny, and it's getting worse. I also wish there were more job opportunities. Living in the city was important to me, but I could only find work in the suburbs. The commute is a real bummer.

I am in very close proximity to a great area of St. Louis, which is called "The Loop". The Loop is a really great place with many chain stores. Some of the chain stores include Ben and Jerry's, Chipotle, and Blick Art Supplies. This area also has some wonderful independently owned stores. One of my favorite small stores on The Loop is called Plowsharing Crafts. This store buys and sells fair trade crafts and handmade objects from all over the world. Most of these crafts are made from recyclable materials and help to support economies in villages. I love what this store has to offer and I love supporting its cause. I feel that this area offers shoppers a wide variety of goods and services for consumers and I can certainly get most of what I need in this area. I do think that the grocery store does not offer a lot of selection however and believe that it is expensive. Therefore, I generally go to different grocery stores for food.
St. Louis has four seasons, which is nice. The leaves change in the fall, there is a little bit of snow during the winters, and flowers in the spring. I think that I like spring the best in St. Louis because the temperature is warm, but very tolerable. It is easy to go outside during the day and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I also love how quickly flowers and plants bloom, which makes everything seem lively and happy during the spring. I do not like the summer. The weather is always humid and I feel that I am constantly sticking to things. I do not enjoy the humidity, bugs, and cicadas. This humidity also gives the area lots of severe thunderstorms and the possibility for tornadoes. Although tornadoes generally do not touch down in the city, there are frequently tornado warnings and drills that people need to participate in.
