OOps my bad I thought Kanick had brought that up Of course I have faith in you besides I am still counting on you to help us house hunt after we get there. The plan so far is after moving there to start searching neighborhoods and find one we agree on, I still love the city and he is still scared of it. Then start house hunting in that area and hopefully take advantage of this housing crisis before things get better again. Sounds horrible but I gotta get the best bang for my buck

Down near Tholozan it is still a little rough around the edges, but once you cross the railroad tracks to the north, it gets pretty nice on Morganford in between Arsenal and Utah. The large historic brick houses close to Grand are pretty expensive now, but the area around Morganford north of the tracks is still pretty affordable so there are lots of young professionals moving in.

There have been a lot of new businesses opening. Most of them would traditionally work well on Grand, but that area is kind of built out at this point and Morganford was sitting wide open with great boarded-up buildings and no businesses only six blocks away. A few years ago some people came in and bought the old buildings for a song, rehabbed them, and the area is looking great. There are a lot more buildings being worked on right now so who knows what else is coming for the strip.

Be sure to check out the Morganford businesses when you move to the area:
3 Monkeys :: An Eating & Drinking Establishment
Tin Can Tavern & Grille - St. Louis
Stella Blues - Restaurant and Bar
Vintage Haberdashery - Home
Grove Furnishings - Main Page

Both of my kids went to Henry, all the way through graduation from Parkway School District. Very good school, no problems.
