Saint Louis MO

The neighborhood has been experiencing an influx of new people since the 1990s. The area has a low crime rate and has traditionally been home to a large number of firefighters and police officers, as a result of a St. Louis regulation requiring city employees to live within the city limits. The city in 2006 relaxed that requirement, but a large population still lives in the area. Many new owners are middle class and upper middle class as the property values saw large increases after 2003.
The Macklind Avenue Business District runs through the center of the neighborhood on Macklind Ave. from Devonshire Avenue to Eichelberger St. There are many new businesses and small established businesses.
