Abby if you are referring to the Visitation Park Area of St. Louis. Its a fairly decent area the crime rate has decreased but there are some specific blocks that are considered quiet or more "habitable" then other blocks. The area is named for the church and school that used to operate at the corner of Evans and Taylor Ave. I grew up in the area in the 80's and 90's and it was very friendly at that time. My mom still maintains a home in that area and people are still friendly that I've encountered.

Visit areas of interest more than once, see all firsthand; for school information see link When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Abby, Please be aware that your question is going out to a very broad audience. Unless you give us more specifics, we don't know if you are talking about an area in Kansas City or in St Louis.

In St Louis, we have a Central West End, but I've never heard of an area that is referred to only as "West End". We do have an area that is known as Visitation Park that is north of Delmar, west of Union, east of Belt and South of Maple, but I"m not sure if that's the area that you are talking about. The Visitation Park area in St Louis is actually a Historic District and has some lovely homes in it, many of which have been renovated, but there are also some brand new housing developments being built in the area.

In terms of the crime rate, I will refer you to the St Louis City website which gives the crime stats by neighborhood, district and ward.

The area is home to St Louis City Public Schools, including magnet schools such as Soldan International Studies High School and some private/parochial schools.
