We've had cities compared to each other from opposite sides of the country, but how about cities compared to each other in the same city?
Webster Groves and Kirkwood are often compared to each other because of their similarities. So which is your favorite? I'm gonna have to go with Kirkwood. I think its downtown is quainter and more active and it just seems nicer all around, but not by much. Both areas are very similar, and Webster Groves has Webster University, which I love.

I'd have to go with Webster Groves. It seems like it's located closer to the city. And Clayton and University City aren't far away if I'm correct. Kirkwood is nice, too, though.

I haven't been to Webster Groves,
I liked Kirkwood a lot when I went there.

But I guarantee that housing prices are going to drop like brick in Kirkwood because of the incident that happened there that has nothing to do with crime and could have happened anywhere.

I doubt home prices will drop because of that.

I gotta give my vote to Webster Groves. My dad lived in Rock Hill so I'm familiar with the area, and Webster's location is a little better and I love the University and the quaint feel it gives the town. I would also say that Webster generally has more bungalows and Kirkwood more ranches, though of course much of the housing stock is the same.

Kirwood's downtown def. wins, but traffic is a little tougher there too.

No, home prices will not drop there. It was an isolated incident.

That's all I think about, since I'm buying my 1st house in a few months

Well I guess in your case then it would be good if they dropped a little.
Who knows there might be a few more homes on the market if people decide something crazy such as "It's not safe to live east of 270- to Wentzville it is!" Yuck.

Defining differences between Webster and Kirkwood is nitpicking in the grand scheme of things. Lots of similarities. Both are middle class and upper middle class family oriented suburbs in good locations West and Southwest of the city. Kirkwood is slightly bigger.

Kirkwood has a more centralized walkable downtown. I'm big on walkable. Webster's multiple areas are not as congruent with one another. However, I do like the geography and neighborhoods better in Webster.

I'm not asking for differences, I'm just asking which people like better. I'm very familiar with both areas.

And, I stated that both areas are very similar. Preferences are nitpicking imo.
