I feel this city is very unsafe to live, but fun to visit. I've visited St. Louis in 2019 and 2022.

This city is the definition of “You want to visit but you wouldn’t live there”. Most locals are nice and have me directions but in the downtown area there are a lot of homeless people and shootings so just stay away.

Police are corrupt and its an industry city, not for the people, also has the highest murder rate in the US, 7th in the world, east stl is worse. The people do try thier best to make it a nice and loving city, quite the dichotomy.

I visited my cousin in downtown st.louis an there were 3 shootings around us but as long as you dont walk outside in the middle of them its relatively peaceful.

this city is like: one relatively safe, quite neighborhood with nice people, then couple blocks away literally shootings. Especially lately
