This neighborhood is good for old architecture and little eateries. The most famous one by far is Gus' pretzel shop. The neighborhood is just west from the Anheuser Busch Brewery. If you have the chance to visit this neighborhood on a nice sunny, weekend day, it would be good to do. Just don't come by at night, it would be better if you didn't. Some reasons why not to come down at night...
1. Robberies are common.
2. Drunks have lots of road rage
3. Hobos ask for money a lot
