This really isn’t news to those of us who know - and, therefore, love - Old North St. Louis. However, we are thrilled to share the news that yet another outside, neutral party has joined us in the assessment that Old North is the Best Place to Live in St. Louis. The annual Riverfront Times “Best of St. Louis” issue just hit the streets today, and right there on page 28 is the big news that Old North is this year’s selection for Best Place to Live. Click HERE to read the explanation from the good folks at the RFT in their online version.
As the brief article notes, Old North is “flourishing” with much to celebrate, including the redevelopment of Crown Square (where the commercial space is approaching full occupancy, by the way), a significant reduction in an already low amount of crime, a really cool farmers’ market, a “tight-knit bunch” of residents, and the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Village of North St. Louis just a few months away.
Although that little blurb says a lot, we know the full story deserves much more space than the RFT had available in their very jam-packed Best of issue. So, stay tuned for a follow up from us on some of the reasons we agree with their conclusion. In the meantime, all who call Old North home or have their business here can share in the credit and take a bow for this well-deserved acknowledgment. As the Shakespeare in the Streets production of The World Begun just last week conveyed, Old North is a magical place with some one-of-a-kind characters who are passionate about their community.
If you don’t believe us, we invite you to come on by to see for yourself. And if you’d like to get in on the action and share the excitement, we’ve got an endless supply of opportunities.
