Checking In on Old North St. Louis

I took a walk around Old North St. Louis a couple of weeks ago with a friend, and I was pleased to see how well much of the rehabbing has held up in the last several years.Sadly, though, some buildings remain in a state of disrepair, including many rowhouses that could be fixed up as well as their neighbors.


  1. Funny to see you post this. I was just in this neighborhood yesterday and pleasantly surprised by much of what I saw going on throughout.

  2. This reminded me of this past Saturday. I dropped my wife off to get her hair done at the Paul Mitchel school and the area North of Locust, just one street, one block North, was full of old and boarded up houses and such. Yet, again, Locust is now the new cool place to hang out. I just wish I had bank to buy up those old places and turn them into something.
