^Yeah I don't know why Google has such a hard time with that, but Clemens and Syracuse do meet up just north of Blueberry Hill in the loop. Delmar is a significant demarcation line in the city of St. Louis, but in University City that area is very safe and walkable -- would certainly highly recommend this spot!

Earlier you sent me a link to a neighborhood walk through. I was wondering which neighborhood this apartment falls into.

It's not actually going to be in that guide -- it's in University City, which is technically a suburb but in reality one of the most urban, walkable spots in the metro area. Mark only did the city's 79 'hoods ... at least yet!

The American Planning Association named the Loop “One of the 10 Great Streets in America” just a couple of years ago.

I googled "the loop," it looks like a really fun place.

It's a pretty cool spot to hang out. It has gotten a tad more commercialized in the last several years (More chain restaurants and stores opening) but overall, it's still a great place to spend a Saturday night.

That's not untrue, but the vast majority of the businesses are still locally owned. St. Louis' lack of chains in its urban areas is one of my favorite things about St. Louis when compared to Kansas City where I live now -- two of the major destination neighborhoods, Power & Light and The Plaza are filled damn near to the brim with chains. Don't get me wrong, I'm a girl who likes some PF Chang's on occasion, but it really does take away some of the local flavor, as it were.

Congratulations! Be sure to keep us updated and to come back when you need suggestions for what to do in the area.

I had dinner at Cicero's on Saturday -- my Ragin' Cajun pizza was soooo good, and their beer selection is insane.
