*yawn* this misconception is just ridiculous and it's a terrible shame that people adhere to ignorant stereotypes and miss out getting to know St. Louis. The city has dozens upon dozens of incredibly urban, historic, stable and distinctive neighborhoods that are every bit as safe as any parallel neighborhoods in other post-industrial cities. If you base all your opinions on headlines and arbitrary "stats" it's really your loss. St. Louis is an incredible city.

I agree. But as an European looking to go to the US everyone says St. Louis is like Detroit lite.

The average one bedroom rent seems to be in the $800-$900 range in most of these cities, which is on the low end nationally but not dirt cheap. Still, it's a lot more urban than you would get in Indianapolis or something.
Obviously if these towns are seeing an influx, there is a demand to live there. What I guess you meant is that there is no demand for white folks to live there. Next time around, please have the courage of your convictions to say as much.

Wow I just caught that!

Yeah of course there's demand to live there if the rents are rising.

Oh and white people move into Latino neighborhoods all the time. See: Bushwick for instance

Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to write "it's not like there's no demand to live there."
