We started off by driving around North St. Louis, in the area of Baden. This used to be an old German section of St. Louis. However, due to white flight, the homes are now sporadically occupied or abandoned. Please scroll down to view all the pictures and at the bottom click the arrow to go to the next page.
Some of the homes are taken care of and the owners have pride in them as evidenced by the home in the middle. However, the home on the left is boarded up.
We saw many homes like this.
Due to the economy and other issues, there are many homeless people who dwell in St. Louis.
