Have lived here quite a while. Unfortunately, over time, crime has become rampant in this area and police are overwhelmed. Along with our friends, we're moving out as soon as we can to a safer, quieter neighborhood with a lot less drama.

I have lived in other areas of Saint Louis and can say this is my favorite so far. I love the area. People are always around walking their dogs or exercising. I feel very safe here. Also, it is convenient to the Galleria Mall, grocery stores, and other shopping. You can easily hop on the highway to go anywhere else you need. I have been very impressed with living in this area.
I've lived her for 10+ years and have loved every minute of it. The city is small and charming, yet has very easy access to many great amenities.
