McNair Avenue north from Arsenal in Benton Park is easily one of my favorite streets in St. Louis, and its variety of houses from different generations, along with the beautiful rehabs, make it truly unique.
And, as intended, there are restaurants that are embedded within the neighborhood, encouraging residents to walk the streets and create life along McNair.
And then, there is that wonderful cluster of little one and a half story workers’ cottages, which are all going to be renovated in the next six months.
The last ones had been sitting vacant for years, but now they are now undergoing a wonderful transformation that restores their beautiful wood dormers and trim.
Then we get to Sidney Street, which is the northernmost major east-west artery in the neighborhood.
