Here are the four corners of the intersection of Wells Avenue and Goodfellow Boulevard. Above, the northwest corner, below the northeast.

One of the major reasons I dislike the official 79 neighborhoods in St. Louis (couldn’t think of an 80th one?) is that they routinely do not follow historic boundaries. The intersection of Wells and Goodfellow is in Hamilton Heights? Huh? The actual Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood is to the north.

I wish I could find something optimistic to say about the rest of Goodfellow Boulevard south of MLK. It’s beaten up, badly. Lots of houses that have clearly been abandoned recently. Sad.

      Why do you think I took a picture of it?

      That Buick is old enough to have the old Saginaw steering column, which was so easy to steal that all you needed was a screw driver. And a joy ride is a joy ride. My wife’s cars were stolen from the South Side twice: First the Ford Escort, and then the Saturn SC1. Both were left abandoned–largely unharmed–on the North Side. I guess they needed to run errands.
