LOVE ST. LOUIS.

We experience and enjoy all four seasons here. Winter brings enough snow to build snowmen and close schools for a few days but not too much. Before you know it, spring arrives bringing showers and beautiful May fl wers. The heat of summer opens the doors to many outdoor activities at nearby parks (page 42 and 50), while fall's breathtaking foliage rivals the Northeast’s, especially along the banks of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Pierre Lacleade and Auguste Chouteau founded St. Louis as a fur trading post in 1764 on the bluffs of the Mississippi River and is named after the French king, St. Louis from 1200 AD. In our early days, St Louis prospered under French, Spanish and American rule and that diversity can be seen in the beautiful architecture throughout our fine city from small abodes to the mansions built before the 1904 World’s Fair held in Forest Park, which is 50 percent larger than NYC's Central Park!  There are numerous neighborhoods in STL each with unique and distinctive personalities (page 18). Hiring a real estate agent with tons of experience to assist you in navigating the neighborhoods will ensure a perfect landing in the perfect home with an enriching school (page 54) nearby for your children.  If you haven't heard already, St. Louis loves toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, pork steaks, free cultural institutions, baseball and ice hockey! Where did you go to high school? You'll hear about that later! We can't wait to share our wonderful city with you!

DISTINCTIVE NEIGHBORHOODS Find the perfect St. Louis community to call home

CITY OF ST. LOUIS, MO Benton Park. Designated

as a sustainable neighborhood in 2004, Benton Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Most homes date back to the late 19th century, many with the original moldings, stained glass and fixtures intact. Century-old trees shade streets, and residents tend to maintain meticulous porches, lawns and gardens. Central West End. The Central West End is

right across from Forest Park, caddy-corner to Washington University and five minutes from downtown. However, most residents find few reasons to leave the neighborhood. The business district’s cobblestone streets are dense with restaurants, stores and galleries. Not far from the Central West End’s business district you will find gated streets lined with turn-of-the-century mansions and larger historic homes. The area also includes high-rise apartments, condominiums and luxury apartments.

18

Dogtown. Just south of Forest Park and the Saint Louis Zoo is a neighborhood affectionately known as “Dogtown.” This lively, tree-lined neighborhood consists of smaller, older homes, apartments and local restaurants and bars; it also boasts a front-row view of the St. Patrick’s Day parade route during the city’s popular Irish celebration. The Hill. Settled in the late 19th century by

immigrants from northern Italy and Sicily, this well-established neighborhood embraces its heritage. The Hill prides itself on meticulously maintained homes, locally renowned ItalianAmerican restaurants, bakeries, delis and specialty grocers. Holly Hills. Established in the 1920s, Holly Hills is a charming neighborhood located in South St. Louis near the intersection of I-55 and Loughborough Avenue. Both single-family and multi-family homes, from brick mansions to bungalows, anchor the tree-lined streets. The neighborhood has excellent schools, churches and the third largest park in the city of St. Louis, Carondelet Park.

LAFAYETTE SQUARE

Shaw Neighborhood. Bordering the west side

of this historic neighborhood is the Missouri Botanical Garden, planned and installed by Henry Shaw. Shaw Neighborhood received its historic designation in 1985 and boasts beautiful, grand homes from the turn of the century and spacious multi-family dwellings within walking distance of the Garden and Tower Grove Park. Today, the neighborhood is filled with bistros, coffee houses, florists and art galleries. Beautiful, tree-lined streets and historic homes characterize the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood. Its development began during the 1904 World’s Fair. Within walking distance of Forest Park, Washington University and the Delmar “Loop," the area was designated a Local Historic District in 1978. The large single-family homes and expansive apartment buildings, ranging in style from Classic to Tudor Revival to bungalow-st yle, boast exquisite early 20th-century architectural details in their art glass, millwork and fireplace mantels.

Skinker-DeBaliviere.

Lafayette Square. Named after a Revolutionary

War hero, Lafayette Square is all about history, from streets lined with Victorian “painted ladies” to 30-acre Lafayette Park, not only the oldest park in the city, but also the first park west of the Missouri River. Located southwest of downtown, Lafayette Square has a fine collection of bars and restaurants, including SqWires Restaurant and Market, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar and Square One Brewery. In addition to Victorian mansions, you will find luxury apartments, lofts and condominiums. Downtown St. Louis. Thanks to an urban renewal

project, downtown St. Louis is one of the hottest housing tickets in the city. Lofts and apartments range from small rental units to lavish penthouses. Downtown has access to dry cleaning services, hardware and grocery stores, as well as a large selection of fine and casual dining spots. Within walking distance of the lofts and condominiums are famous sports and entertainment venues, as well as historical landmarks. St. Louis Hills. Constructed between 1930 and

1960, most of the homes in St. Louis Hills are brick, but their architectural styles include gingerbread bungalows, larger ranch houses and an eight-sided Art Deco house. Like many St. Louis City neighborhoods, the community is centered around green space – in this case, 60-acre Francis Park, which hosts a weekly outdoor concert series during the summer months.

20

Soulard. One of the oldest communities in the city, Soulard is filled with renovated brick rowhouses and breathtaking Victorian-style homes, bars, pubs, restaurants and businesses – many of which are centuries old. Named after Antoine Soulard, the first developer in the neighborhood, the two-block area of land known as Soulard Farmer’s Market was donated by Julia Soulard in 1838 with the stipulation that it remain a public market. Today, the market still remains open all year. Tower Grove. This area actually includes two

neighborhoods – Tower Grove South and Tower Grove East. They both surround Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Homes in this area range from impressive mansions to quirky, turn-of-the-century flats with pocket doors and fireplaces. Both neighborhoods are demographically mixed, housing residents in historic homes to graduate students. Also of note is South Grand Boulevard, an up-and-coming stretch of ethnic restaurants, hip bars and shops.

CLANG, CLANG, CLANG GOES THE TROLLEY The Loop Trolley will soon be up and running in University City. By Melissa Mauzy

A piece of history will soon come back to life in University City as the Loop Trolley construction nears completion. Streetcars were a popular mode of transportation in the late 1920s through the 1960s. In fact, The Loop got its well-known name because of the streetcar turnaround on Delmar. In 1997 a community group was looking for ways to cultivate development in the area. Longtime supporter and promoter of the Delmar Loop and owner of Blueberry Hill Joe Edwards proposed a revival of the streetcar system to encourage pedestrian travel and link The Loop with city. The 2.2-mile Loop Trolley will run along Delmar Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue, connecting the restaurants, shopping and entertainment of The Loop with Forest Park. In The Loop, the trolley will operate in drive lanes joining vehicular traffic. There will be 10 designated trolley stops for passengers to hop on and off. Explore your city with a day spent riding the trolley up and down Delmar. Check out the attractions at these stops along the Trolley route. Missouri History Museum/Forest Park Stop: Missouri History Museum – Part of the World’s Fair exhibition buildings, the Missouri History Museum showcases pieces of the state and city’s history. Enjoy lunch or brunch (Sundays) at Bixby’s as part of your visit.

Furnish your new home with fabulous finds from local consignment shops. Or sell items you won’t be using in your new home before you move. By Melissa Mauzy

Oftentimes the word secondhand has the implication that an item is not as good or damaged, but many times secondhand goods are in excellent condition and can make for a unique addition to any space in your home. Consignment is the most convenient way to sell used furniture and the smartest way to buy. Buying through consignment is a terrific alternative to purchasing new. Before you move, get rid of unwanted furniture by selling to a consignment shop. You will make money, while making way for a beautiful new piece in place of the old. Alternatively, if you need to purchase furniture to fill a new home, consignment shops can be an excellent way to get a lot of high-quality items at reasonable prices. With a good eye and patience, you can score stylish selections fit for your new space. If you don’t find what you are looking for the first time, continue to check in at your favorite spots as inventory changes quickly. Top 5 reasons to shop consignment stores • One-Of-A-Kind Finds. Box stores typically have unlimited quantities of items for purchase or order. Consignment stores offer singular, unique items you may not be able to find anywhere else. • Great Prices. Purchasing secondhand saves you money on quality furnishings and accessories for any room in your home. You can find a piece of furniture at a fraction of the cost of buying new. • Cash & Carry. Shop the store, find your piece and you could walk out with it that day. No more waiting 8-12 weeks for a custom piece purchased in a chain store. • Support Local Business. Since most shops are locally owned, you are supporting your local community and small business.

• Eco-Friendly. Merchandise is collected locally and re-used. What could be more environmentally friendly than that? Top 5 reasons to sell at consignment stores Free Up Space. Make way for new items by clearing out pieces you no longer use or want. Just because you are done with something doesn’t mean it doesn’t still have life elsewhere. • Reach a Larger Audience. Consignment stores have a larger base of potential buyers for your items than other alternatives. With constant foot traffic, your item will have a much better chance at finding a new home. • They do the Work. Once you turn your piece over to a consignment store, they handle all the hard work of displaying, negotiating and making the sale. • It is safe. You don’t have to worry about communicating or meeting strangers for pick up/drop off. • Support Local Business. Selling to a consignment shop not only supports local business, but it gives someone else in your community the chance to enjoy your used goods at a discounted price. ST.
