Moving to St. Louis!
- 0Jul 13, '11 by LoloberryI will be moving from Oregon to St. Louis to go to BJC and could use some advice! Can anybody give me any recommendations on what neighborhoods to live in or at least ones to avoid? Also I heard a rumor that students can take advantage of the childcare at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, does anybody know if this is true? Thanks!!!
- 0Aug 8, '11 by kvisintineThe Hill is also a good place. A good rule of thumb is to stay west of Kingshighway, and don't veture too far north of Forest Park Parkway... the surrounding neighborhoods in these areas get a little rough, and if your not familiar with the area, it is hard to tell which is good and which is bad. I lived in a 4 family flat off of Columbia and Southwest Avenue as a single girl and loved the area ;-)

Clayton has more of a city feel to it and South County is a bit quieter and not so busy. They have great daycare's around there to! Oh, and I know this has nothing to do with the question but beware of St. Louis weather! one day it will be 80 degrees and the next snowing! Good Luck!
