I even felt fairly safe walking around by myself at night as long as I was paying close attention to my surroundings. It's definitely not as crazy as it sounds.
The DeMun area is nice as well (just south of campus along Skinker Blvd.), as is the Central West End.
I'm overreacting, I know. My concern is that my wife and 3 year old daughter will be living there with me. I keep thinking that since I'll be spending a lot of time in the law library, I want them to be in a safe neighborhood. I don't want the added stress of worrying about them.
Is Creve Coeur a good area? I'm noticing a lot of nice apartments there for decent prices. And I personally don't mind a 15 minute commute if it's in a better neighborhood.
