Has everybody seen this already?

Judgmental Map of St. Louis - The St. Louis Egotist

Calling Maryland Heights Young Professionals Scared of City Living really made me LOL, since that's where I moved when I was young and single and first came to St. Louis, even though I worked downtown. It ended up working out perfectly and I loved it there, but yes, I'll admit, that before coming to St. Louis and embracing all of the gritty awesomeness, I was scared of all of the anti-city-talk I'd heard prior to my move!

I think differently now of course!

Seemed pretty spot on...didn't notice anything about Blues Fans in South County, but i'm pretty certain that's where they all congregate.

As a child growing up in StL during 50-60-70's, I have to say it's both funny but sadly true.

What's funny is that a lot of the comments say it's racist or discriminatory. Of course, it's not at all-it offends all races! That's the hilarity of it.

A StL map from the 50'-70' would have looked a lot different

I used to walk the Babler trails a lot, although never ran across any bodies (probably).

That's what I meant by sad. It didn't used to be.

Maryland Heights young professionals scared of city living is kind of true. I think I've mentioned this before I met a young White lady who was from Chicago who chose Maryland Heights because all of the lofts downtown where section 8 and there were too many homicides. Then she claimed that she couldn't find a cab to take her home after a night out in west county clubs. She worked at Washington University but knew nothing about the Central West End or the Loop restaurants because of the horrific crime. By the end of our conversation I had lost focus because she was so ridiculous.
