Wanting to move to 63109 or 63139 zip codes in St. Louis city (North Hampton, south Hampton, lidenwood park) Wanting to buy a house 2-3 bed 1-1/2 bath w attic space and/or basement space. Is there any streets that I absolutely should stay away from? Looks like I should stay as west as possible. Away from kingshwy. my max budget is about 135,000 so have to rule out some of lindenwood park. I liked some of the area of Devonshire and from what I saw it looked safe. But have heard rumors of theft and homeless sleeping in cars.
Any info would be appreciated.

We live in 63139, but not in the specific neighborhoods you're looking in. You may want to join these neighborhood facebook groups, if they exist. I'm pretty aware of some of the more interesting things going on in our neighborhood just based on chatter in our neighborhood's group. Overall, these zip codes are pretty quiet and safe, as I'm sure you know. Overall, just use common sense--in our neighborhood, there are definitely somewhat run down blocks with rental properties that aren't taken care of as well--I wouldn't want to live near those. Or near loud bars that draw a lot of drunk people. Etc.

I am familiar with that area. Not the best, but not the worst. I wouldn't be a huge fan for a few reasons: Very close to Hampton, which is busy, and the number of fast food places around there that seem to have some police activity (I believe the Steak and Shake down the street was robbed at gunpoint in the last few months). Talayna's a few blocks down drives people crazy too (late night bar with LOTS of drunks). I'd advise looking more towards the interior parts of Dogtown.

My favorite streets in the 63109 zip code (from an architectural perspective) are Lisette and Sutherland. Devonshire is pretty great. Murdoch is nice too, but unlikely that you'll find something at your price point.

Being by Kingshighway will take you into Princeton Heights- which I wouldn't rule out if you were south of Christy Park- you'd be surprised by how quiet some of the blocks are. You could get a great value around there for 135k. Goethe, Milentz, and Holly Hills by Kingshighway have some great finds.

Good luck with your search!

Looking at 2 places on Devonshire actually at the corners of sulphur and Devonshire and then just before the weird diagonal street wherry. They houses look well cared for and most quite large.
Thanks for the input.
Keep giving info this is very helpful
