There are a LOT of abandoned houses and apartment buildings in the area; especially downtown. However, there are a lot of diverse neighborhoods with different styles of housing and I think it's great. I love how you can tell what part of the city you are in depending on the houses. The housing also shows how old and historic St. Louis is, but we need to renovate/demolish the many places that have been left to rot for one reason or another.

While there aren't a lot of natural disaster type weather problems, St. Louis is notorious for the fast and dramatic weather changes it goes through year round. One day it can be sunny and 80 degrees, while the next is cold, wet, and 30 degrees. It is also extremely humid, making the summers hotter than most places.
There is a huge issue with police brutality, especially among minorities. Because of protests, there is a lot of anger now and it's making the area even more unsafe than it was before. There are good cops who are great at their jobs, but there is a majority of bad/racist/lazy cops.
