Pic Today 1/31/10

1900 block Park Avenue, Lafayette Park Neighborhood . . .

This block of converted row houses in historic Lafeyette Park is one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Louis (designated "official historic landmark" in 1972). These "shotgun" buildings today feature restaurants, bars, shops, businesses and apartments, including Ricardo's Italian Restaurant, 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar, Arcelia's Mexican Restaurant, Marble's Yoga Studio, Bailey's Chocolate Bar, Park Avenue Coffee (featuring their own gooey butter coffee cakes, 33 flavors!), and the original Steps Alano Club upstairs (now moved) . . . and this is all in ONE BLOCK.

Lots going on in Lafayette Park these days and definitely worth a visit if you haven't been down in a while.

Have a glimpse of St. Louis 100 years ago.
