I love this neighborhood; there is a lot of diversity and the people are very friendly. It is also near a lot of the major attractions of St. Louis, so that's also a plus.
I love living on the Hill. I like the sense of community, the safety of the neighborhoods, and how you can live in the city without actually feeling like you are living in the city. As far as change, there is room to improve the safety of the neighborhoods. Car break ins are not uncommon.
