Pro's: Good restaurants and bars
Cons: Crime, crime, crime, and more crime. Your car will eventually get broken into. You will probably eventually be robbed if you live there long enough. You get what you pay for. The weird thing about St. Louis is that you get used to crime and you think its normal. When you live elsewhere you realize that it isn't.

I love Clinton's answer. DeBaliviere Place is a wonderful neighborhood with tree lined streets, Forest Park within walking distance, and some great restaurants and bars. You can choose between a short car ride to Hwy 40 or a short walk to the metro. One of our two offices in located at Belt & Pershing. Cons: well, you don't live there ;)

The best way to find out what the pro's and cons of a neighborhood is would be by visiting at various hours of the day, different days of the week. You may find it helpful to speak with any neighbors you see walking or working in their yard.

It truly is a wonderful area to live in, close to public transportation and all the amenities of the city. Close to shops and restaurants, Wash U, and Forest Park.

There iS so much at your doorstep in DeBaliviere! Metro link, Forest Park, restaurants, Wash U and much more!

Are you looking for a house or condo?

I would buy something with a garage or gated parking.
