Old North Featured in St. Louis Magazine’s “Where We Live” Issue

St. Louis Magazine has done it again.  And we thank them very much! Old North St. Louis once again is featured prominently in St. Louis Magazine’s annual issue in which they take a look at the many different neighborhoods, municipalities, and communities that make up the greater St. Louis region.

The April issue arrived in our mail today, and we were very pleased to discover that not only did Old North make it into St. Louis Magazine’s 2011 Neighborhood Guide, the very first article in this section included a full-page photo of Old North residents Claire Wolff and Joe Sweet, sipping coffee at the former Urban Studio Cafe (soon to re-open as La Mancha Coffeehouse), followed by another full-page update on “What’s New in Old North” with even more photos of Crown Square, the North City Farmers’ Market, and the Johnnie Owens sign at the Hebert Community Garden.

And if that wasn’t enough to make us happy, the magazine’s website at uses the photo of the Crown Square buildings at 2601-09 N. 14th Street as the image to promote the link to the online content for the Neighborhood Guide.

As our way of thanking St. Louis Magazine for this well-deserved but generous coverage of Old North, we encourage one and all to rush out to the newsstands to pick up your own issue.  However, when you get the magazine in your hands, don’t just flip ahead to page 80 for the article about Old North.  Feel free to read the whole issue from cover to cover, but take a moment to stop at page 16 and read what Stefene Russell, the magazine’s Culture Editor, has to say about why she lives in Old North.
