The City of St Louis (STL County is a completely separate entity), you mean, and what about East St Louis?

No, I meant the CITY of St. Louis. I have encountered many shady areas while in town. E. St. Louis I do not even bother to drive in, unless I am driving by on the freeway. Looks like a warzone.

But I meant St. Louis, Missouri.

Thought you did, and yes, there are parts of the City of St Louis that I would NEVER think of going into.
But on the other hand, there are some really nice parts of STL that I love....totally agree with you about E STL!

Oh yeah, I love St. Louis. One of the best cities in the Midwest and extremely underrated. They have one of the best light rail systems I have seen, a great downtown, an awesome park system, and great suburbs (not the cookie cutter kind ).

Honestly, Cleveland and St. Louis are like sister cities. Love em both, and have great times when I am there.

I believe the 3 highest crime-rated cities in the mid-west are all in Michigan unfortunately--Detroit, Flint, and Saginaw. So those are the three that I would say are the most dangerous, as well as Youngstown, Ohio.

Umm, you should check that posters history.....Anyway, it is more complex than some people want to realize.

People, St Louis has NOTHING on Detroit! The only reason STL makes the most dangerous list is they only count a very small population. If they measured STL like every other city in the country, we wouldn't break the top 50 most dangerous! They only count an area of 350,000 people, in a metro of over three million. In that area of 350,000 is North STL, which is where the majority of the crime takes place. The central corridor and south side are for the most part vibrant, safe neighborhoods.

I will add that I have lived in the St Louis area for 6 years, in South City for three years. I have never had a problem with crime. It really is a shame the Morgan Quinto list will not measure the statistics fairly, they do a lot of damage for the sake of book sales.
