Jonathonjay, what do you mean by using the term "still" in your comment about the Riverwood neighborhoods? I hope you don' t mean by that term that you believe it won'f still be a great place to live sometime in the not to distant future.

It has been my understanding that the 3 Riverwood subdivisions have always been highly desirable real estate because of its well constructed homes, low crime rate and friendly neighbors. They are within walking distance of not just the Russell School but also St. Ferdinand Catholic School, not to mention at least 4 churches. There are also parks and stores and restaurants just minutes away. And they are a short 2 miles from I-270.

I've lived in Florissant's Boardwalk subdivision (we're actually unincorporated Florissant) for 3 years and crime is below average. We actually moved from Rockford, IL which has a MUCH higher crime rate than St. Louis County (and that includes a MUCH higher murder rate). Our subdivision is quiet and the neighbors all look out for one anothers homes. The biggest problem we have is our extremely old neighbors who are both racist and who hate kids so they make it difficult for all of the kids on our street to play outside. If neither of them lived in those homes then I would say our particular street is just about perfect. Everyone has children within the same age and grade of each other. They all get along very well and again we look out for one anothers homes.

I can tell you that home invasions and car break-ins are the biggest issue that seems to plague most of Florissant. I would highly recommend to anyone that you get an alarm system for your home and make sure that you get to know your neighbors and who frequents their homes.

In regards to the severe weather issue and no basement, where have you looked for homes? Before we bought our home we rented and we looked EVERYWHERE in unincorporated Florissant and did not find any homes that lacked a basement. Getting closer to Old Town Florissant however I am unsure of simply because we have to remain in unincorporated because we have a Pit Bull and they're banned from incorporated Florissant.

It may be best to stay with a relative or friend for a while until you get on your feet. It's a very stressful situation and maybe it will be a little easier if you didn't have to worry about a place to live right now. I can point you in the right directiion when you land another job. I'll keep you in my prayers until then. ... more
