Parkview, Revisited

Yes, it’s sort of weird, but a couple hundred feet of Parkview is in St. Louis, in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood, and the vast majority is in University City. The community has its own website.

But one thing is for sure; the architecture and the urban planning, the latter by Julius Pitzman, are amazing.

    For my money the most architecturally coherent and robust neighborhood in the city, so elegantly platted. And many families had the faith to stay put during the white-flight era, which lasted well into the ’70s there. From the ones who didn’t, you could’ve stolen a place for $65 K or less.
