A Bit of Northwest Dutchtown

I think Dutchtown, however you define its boundaries, is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Set amongst the rolling hills southwest of downtown, I often feel like I'm in Germany as I come down a hill and see a Gothic spire off in the distance.The architecture is varied as well, from solid brick houses with gingerbread accents to four family flats.And just when you think you've seen too much brick, the beautiful, Modernist Resuurection Church pops out at you on a quiet corner on Meramec Street.
