What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Saint Louis

Lived here a long time. Family home full of memories. Lot of neighbors moving out, but some good ones moving in. Great park 2 blocks away. Older houses with character

Everything bout my neighbor hood wouldn't ask for nothing else or anything better now let me carry on now please

My immediate neighbors are very nice. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance.

my neighborhood is diverse. I love all the restaurants and shops and most of all the grocery stores that are in walking distance.

Stores are in walking distance and conveniet transportation to get places in the area by public transportation. Also have hospital and school close by.

What I like most is that it is close to a big park with museums and tennis courts, and a pool. Also it is close to walkable restaurants and coffee shops.
