Washington Avenue, Central West End

Around St. Louis 101

It never ceases to amaze me that the fortunes of a neighborhood can be so finite across ward boundaries, as they are in the Central West End. Look at these houses; they would go for a fortune south of here, but up this way, just south of Delmar, they sit empty or underutilized. And even more depressing, if you go north of Delmar, the beautiful houses so well known in the Central West End keep on going, for miles in fact. But they mostly rot.
