I've got to get to St. Louis. Rather stay in a neighborhood then downtown.
Here you go:

As for staying in a neighborhood, Gasm has an extra bedroom in his condo and so do I. If you'd rather stay at a hotel, I'd suggest waiting until March when the Moonrise Hotel opens in the East Loop, adjacent to Skinker-DeBaliviere and half a block from my place. Let us know whenever you want to come!

There is the new hip Hotel Indigo in the Central West End.
Also in the West End near the Metro is the Chase Park Plaza Hotel ($$$) or the Marriott Parkway Hotel on Euclid ($$).
These are "in" the neighborhood - not off on the freeway, etc...

Just a couple suggestions.

St. Louis is truly one of the great American cities.

Yeah Pip, random areas of St Louis do feel like Chicago, but the dead give away is usually the brick color.

Jive, and Gasm, we should meet up and do a new team photo tour .

Maybe you can join my on my East Side "hoosier" tour. I found a lot of "interesting" sites on my new job.

Nice to see the lofts behind the Park East Tower finally getting somewhere.

Have they finally demolished the Doctor's Building? I think I only saw one shot here that might have had a peak of it in the background and I couldn't see it.
Doctor's building is gone with the intent of some new midrise condos going up in it's place. Haven't been by there lately to see if they've started on them.

Skinker and DeBaliviere are both streets - Skinker is the western boundary of the neighborhood; DeBaliviere is the eastern boundary.

Gasm's building is awesome - I looked at a condo there before deciding on my old pad in DeBaliviere Place (the neighborhood between Skinker-DeBalivere and the Central West End).

Well, now I know where I'd live if I ever ended up in St. Louis. Those neighborhoods are built right.

Man we need more threads like this - i'm a little remorseful for my obsession with grit. I just assumed that people knew we had a few "real" neighborhoods.

Wonderful photos. A lot of those pictures remind me of Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
