Why do we have 79 neighborhoods in St. Louis? When did they form? How did they earn their names? How do you even make a neighborhood?
These are just some of the questions we'll explore in our new miniseries: STL Neighborhoods.
Each St. Louis neighborhood will get its own episode. But as we learn more we'll publish additional or supplemental episodes as well.
The first three neighborhoods are:
Marine Villa (South)
After those three episodes are done we will use a randomizer to pick the rest. Don't worry, though, we will continue our normal episodes as usual this miniseries. This miniseries is another way we can give you more material from Blinders Off.
Join us as we explore the neighborhoods of St. Louis City!
