Central West End
St. Louis, MO
Submitted by: Keith Belk
This is a rebuilt neighborhood similar to Beacon Hill in Boston, but different in a nicer way.
This neighborhood was an upscale residential and shopping area in the mid-1960ís. It deteriorated during the 70ís, and the City was going to raze portions. It was rebuilt by a handful of urban pioneers over a 25- to 30-year period.
It has period lighting, some brick streets, a plaza, fine and eclectic restaurants with street dining, shops, and homes. It is a complete neighborhood.
What Makes Euclid Street a Great Place?
It is a very accessible neighborhood that is best enjoyed on foot.
It makes a very good first impression.
All ages and genders are present on the street. There is a lot of street activity, and a lot of use by residents and others who live in the City, as well as some tourists.
The street is very social, and a definite meeting place. Residents always show it off.
