I recently accepted a new job in chesterfield, and one of the employees and I were discussing where we lived. He’s a transplant to the area, and doesn’t have a strong grasp on the geographical locations yet, or more so what’s considered “north, central, south, counties” When I mentioned living in Maryland Heights, and he asked me where that’s located, another co-worker piped in with “NORCO! Up North” I was like “it kinda straddles it” and he said, “nope, north of 64, you’re north county!”

lol - hadn’t heard that expression given before, but that card Creve Coeur, Ladue, Town & Country and a bunch of other spots suddenly become North County....and I just don’t think that’s accurate. Lol.
Me either. North of I64 is West County, to me, until Page Ave.

I never heard the expression Norco either, and I lived in STL CO from 1946 til 2012.

I think this is probably in line with my thoughts on it, but it doesn't really matter.

I didn't hear Norco until my kids played youth soccer, and then there was a Norco club and Norco tournament. I think they both had little resemblance to soccer in its heyday in North County. It was apparently a thing in the 50s-60s-70s maybe even early 80s cuz soccer was a big deal back in the day, especially to the Catholics that grew up in North County. Many of whom have since moved to St. Charles County.

Thinking, maybe the fellow employee who is a transplant to StL is from the Calif. area where their lingo is SoCal and NorCal....maybe?
