This is a south city neighborhood brimming with potential. It's a diamond in the rough. There are south city neighborhoods that never went down in quality in terms of property maintenance and residential/neighborhood pride. Holly Hills, Boulevard Heights, Southampton, North Hampton, Lindenwood Park, St. Louis Hills, Princeton Heights are all examples of neighborhoods that have largely remained clean, tidy, safe and well maintained. Gravois Park has slipped from it's original graces and is rough around the edges. BUT...it's lying in wait for continued positivity that is spreading through the neighborhood, with Cherokee Street as the impetus.
Gravois Park, not unlike Fox Park, McKinley Heights, Benton Park West, Marine Villa and Dutchtown are absolutely beautiful neighborhoods waiting for more people who care to bring them back to life. Gravois Park is no doubt on it's way up.
Let's just start on Cherokee which is undergoing a renaissance of sorts. The streets and sidewalks are currently undergoing a redo with new streetlights, trees and curb cuts.

One of the cool things about Gravois Park is it's lined with commercial corridors on all four sides. Cherokee has arrived, so has Grand. And Chippewa and Jefferson are lying in wait for more demand.
Ever been to the Jefferson Avenue Bistro? I need to check this place out.

I like this LRA property:
Neighborhood institutions include many churches, a couple schools and St. Alexius Hospital. My favorite was Froebel School:
