I have enjoyed living the West End for the community and the connections that I have made there. I would like to see more diversity because of the increasing segregation in the St. Louis area. I would also like to see more unity in the neighborhood between residents!

I love the city because of the vibe and cultural aspects and the Central West End area is a good place to live in Saint Louis because of the various opportunities it gives to people such as, diversity, activities, and quality services.
The area is very nice and quite at times but the neighbors or getting terrible with all the gun violence everyday makes it very unsafe to live, but the school district is way better then the county schools they offer so much more.
