Photo Flood Saint Louis turns four this August. This post is a continuation of a countdown to commemorate this exciting milestone.
Forest Park Southeast is a neighborhood of contrasts. The blocks north of Manchester look and feel very different from those south of it. The area’s central business district, sort of an alternative to South Grand and Cherokee Street, seems perpetually half-revitalized (one of the street’s best known businesses, Sweetie Pie’s, just announced its closure).
To summarize why this is is a difficult thing to do, but I’d wager that the neighborhood will only remain this way for a short time longer. As Central West End and Midtown to its north continue to attract new start-up investment, and Botanical Heights further matures to its east, FPSE has a good future outlook.
