St. Louis is like a checkerboard when it comes to good/bad areas. One block may have $250,000 homes and the block over has crack houses and gang activity.
I lived and worked in St. Louis for six (6) months ... helping open Papa John's restaurants. One Sunday evening I was shot in a robbery attempt just north of Wash U ... 14 year old gang banger. He was tried as an adult and sentenced to 15 years. I moved from MO.
Carry daily now ... good luck living in that area.
