79 Neighborhoods in St. Louis
I've lived in six different neighborhoods in St. Louis since 1994. But many parts of the city were unfamiliar to me. As a responsible citizen, I feel you have to make strides to truly understand your city. You have to know the entire city, not just your little neck of the woods. Looking at a map of all 79 neighborhoods, it was hard not to become fascinated with the names and arbitrary borders. Back in 2009, the timing seemed right to visit and document my findings/observations from each and every neighborhood. So in an effort to satisfy my curiosity, I spent a day in each of the 79 neighborhoods taking photos and notes as I went. I made a separate post on each neighborhood. It took me over two years to complete, but I captured a period of time in our long history and in 2019, I started revisiting the neighborhoods and highlighting what has changed, what I missed in the original and what are the future needs. Check them out and leave a comment if I missed anything worthy of shedding a light on. Cheers!
