Default st pete

St Pete is great because you get the best of both worlds--close to the "Big City" of Tampa, yet close enough to the great vibe and lifestyle of the beach. I live in the "Gateway" area and I love it. I am literally 10 minutes from Tampa across the Gandy, yet I work and usually "play" on Redington Beach which is a 15 minute drive. Downtown St Pete thrives, so right now, I think living in St Pete is a great choice...

Default St Pete

I love the beautiful winter weather and being near the water and parks along downtown. I love the many restaurants downtown and the historic districts. I hate the fact that there is no upscale stores downtown. Sich as Trader Joe's, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, The Gap, Banana Republic, etc. The little boutiquey shops gets a bit tired and are a bit passe now. I hate the fact that we do not have enough policeman to patrol for speeders. we have a lot of speeding cars through residential neighborhoods. What is wrong with them> Would they rather get to their house 2 minutes ealry and kill someone? It scares the hell out of me!! I hate the fact that City Council approves just about every development brought to the table until recently; thank goodness! I hate the smell of the reclaimed water in use in some neighborhoods. That can't be healthy. I hate the fact that we do not have curbside recycling! I hate the summer humidity that seems to last forever! I love the bike trails!

The whole city sucks Its nothing but immigrants sheriffs and crappy attitudes from any person from any-ware but Florida stay home!! Dont move here There is nothing above 15 per hour and most places only pay min wage or you have to get a job from one of these willet tree and landscape kinda places ware all the under the table employees have felon records. Be carefully if you have a daughter also there's more breed mixing then at a mixed breed dog show going on here and the kids for the most part have the idea that a good time is getting to the nearest bar or drug dealer. I would also have to say that most of this is because every person here is from Chicago , Pittsburgh or Nye York d.c. you name a state basically if there is a crappy city in the state of your choosing the overflow is here. Plus Pretty much every person in a place of authority on the job is probably snorting or smoking up there pay check at home a real nasty bunch most of these guys are. and yeah the beach is OK if you like the beach but after a few times it looses its charm and you remember how bp drooped all those chemicals in top the water every night still with the coast guard. And with that did you know that the stuff in the water is flammable and can coagulate blood picture what that could do to you or your child some day read about it if you can the British government outlawed it at least 15 years ago. Butt all in all the whole states holding on by a thread, and more immigrants and people from other states keep coming in and causing more loss. And now there has been so many cuts in the county not to mention the state, that its causing real Floridians to loose loose loose well nub nuttz keep coming in over flowing and downing it even more. go to another city all to gether and if you don't believe me go to pinellas county drive on park blvd. do some down Seminole Blvd. , and then take a trip down 34th street in to the darker neighborhoods and then if you still all there in the head come back down 4th street from the south side. Ohooo and little known fact to the new comers visiting st.Petersburg or pinellas county DID YOU KNOW THAT The local reference for saint peters turd is actually Da Burg. And not only But Largo is considered Largetto. And the foreigners and outa states are very proud of that. Just need to know little facts about our humble abode at non other then Saint Peters Turd.

Interesting first post damanmoney you've cornered the market on negatives about St Pete,its a wonder you are still living there., i'll add a few of my own along with some positives

Weather is too hot in the summer,
Ya have to drive every where you want to go
Too much traffic.


Fishing is great
Beaches are great
Some great neighborhoods
Weather is great in the winter
Lots of activities and events
