One of the best st louis has to offer with it's safe neighborhoods, location and amenities. Lived here for a year and felt safe/comfortable and close to forest park, stores, other neighborhoods and the business districts. The little shops were nice and lots of foot traffic was not weirdos like other areas in the city. community center nearby and overall an excellent place to live. Only issue was with living in an apartment near residential area was making friends. people were more reserved here and I think homeownership is important to fit in.. I would recommend this area to anyone with a family and a well/okay paying job.

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.
