Thanks Alexius and aragx6,

Actually the recommendation I received for Maryland Heights was not from this group, it was from a colleague that currently works out of the St. Louis office. He actually said University City or Maryland Heights but I guess I wrongly assumed that University City would comprise mostly of really young university students but I guess that was an incorrect assumption.

So for a girl in her late twenties who wants to reside in a safe neighborhood with easy access to the airport and her place of work (S 4th Street), and preferrably easy access to public transportation, most of you would recommend living in downtown itself or University City correct? I'll be arriving in St. Louis in a little over a month to do some apartment hunting so I'm trying to stick to 1 or 2 areas because I will only be in St. louis about 10 days before my first day of work.

I really appreciate all your assistance.

I would also highly suggest adding the Central West End to that list... only a mile or so from U City anyway.

Yep, and again, don't forget Dogtown (city neighborhood). You can also look at Richmond Heights (inner-ring suburb) and Maplewood (inner-ring suburb). These 3 + U. City + Central West End are all in the same general area. This "someone" in the St. Louis office who told you about Maryland Heights sounds like your typical suburbanite (sorry suburbanites ) who looks at the city as a place to find a job. I looked at the city when coming here as a place to live, love, and work. If there was no city, there would be no suburbs. Unfortunately the push west (west county) just keeps getting worse.
