Thanks to everyone who replied above. I finally got word that we will be moving to St Louis at the end of September. I hope to spend some time there before then and am really looking forward to the move.
I'll be sure to check out all the above suggestions.

Again, thanks all
Matt

Where are you currently living?

Have you checked the downtown lofts? They are very nice, moderns places, and 9 times out of 10 they have been remodeled in only the last few years. If you are interested, check out the website UrbanStLouis.com. They have featured developments and a ton of information about current and completed developments.

Look at lofts in west downtown, townhouses and condos in Lafayette Square and LaSalle Park. I'm not sure if I can say this but I have a townhouse for sale in LaSalle Park. There are several properties for sale in the nieghborhood. You would love it. Quaint, quiet, hip and close to downtown (walk to a ballgame, restaurants, parks) & the highway system.

Hello all
I have been meaning to update this for some time now so here goes. We moved to StL in October 07 and moved into a downtown loft on Nov 1st. We survived our first winter (after 4 years on Hawaii!!) and are now "enjoying" our first StL summer.
Been to the ballpark, jazz in the park, numerous restaurants, pubs and parks and enjoying life in the midwest.
Thanks to everyone for the welcome suggestions.
Regards
Matt

You are correct - Dogtown is a localized Irish area in the city of St. Louis; Little Ireland to the Hill's Little Italy. Mostly small homes, and a few apt. complexes around. Tons of brick buildings. And of course, the St. Patrick's Day Parade marches right through the middle of Dogtown (Tamm Ave.). Were you able to head over from downtown to check it out? If not, there is always next year!

Default also considering moving to st louis

hi,

was recently in st. louis and saw the tower grove area and the park, both beautiful. we are considering moving there or somewhere in the stl area, but have a young son and are worried about the public schools. we live in brooklyn, n.y. so are use to urban living. however, would like somewhere with more space, a yard and a better school system to nyc public schools. we are also used to being able to walk to restaurants, bars etc... the houses in tower grove look beautiful, but relatives in the area told us it's not a great area,, however, i think their standards may be a lot different to people who have lived in nyc as we have done for many years. thanks.

N.

Tower Grove I think is generally ok. Some nice homes there.

But I would look into private school. I'm not sure how good NYC schools are, but I can't believe St. Louis City schools are any better.

You'll want to look into the magnet systems, I don't have children so I haven't had to deal with any of that, but apparently they range from so-so to fantastic, so it's worth the homework.

Regarding the Tower Grove area: South is best, East is OK and has gotten better as of late, and north of the park is/can be sketchy. It's all about comfort level.

How much are you looking to spend on a home?
