Housing Diversity in the 6th Ward

I went to one of our neighborhood meetings the other night and our Alderwoman, Kacie Starr Triplet, stopped by to give us an update and reminding us of everything going in the 6th Ward.This got me thinking about the 6th Ward in general.


The 6th ward includes Tower Grove East, The Loft District, Lafayette Square, The Gate District, Compton Heights and Compton Hill Reservoir Square (to mention just a few). According to Alderwoman Triplett’s website there are over “600 small and large businesses, including large employers such as Wells Fargo Advisors, AT & T and Ameren Missouri.”

I really like this part of the city. I love how diverse it is in terms of people, businesses and activities and architecture. This ward borders the commercial district on South and Grand and includes two other destination neighborhoods (Lafayette Square and the Loft District). There is always something going on in the 6th ward. On October 11th there was a 6th Ward Business Showcase and tomorrow night (15 October 2010) there will be an outdoor screening of Ghostbusters in Lucas Park. I know where I’ll be!
