St. Louis, Missouri, is divided into 79 neighborhoods. Census data is collected for each neighborhood, as well as crime data, historic property data, and dining establishment health ratings. National historic neighborhoods are identified by the official neighborhood to which they belong.

Also, several neighborhood names extend to areas well beyond their technical borders. For example, Downtown St. Louis is generally thought to include the St. Louis Union Station and the Scottrade Center, even though Downtown technically ends at Tucker Avenue (12th Street). Additionally, the Fox Theatre and Powell Symphony Hall are popularly considered a part of Midtown St. Louis even though they are in Grand Center. Dogtown is an area south of Forest Park that includes at least 4 distinct neighborhoods.

Moreover, sometimes several neighborhoods are lumped together in categories such as "North City" and "South City." These last distinctions - between north and south - carry racial distinctions because the City of St. Louis used to be racially segregated by legally enforceable racially restrictive covenants (i.e., restrictions in property deeds that forbade sales to persons of particular races), and effectively still is segregated by circumstance; North City was the "black" half while South City was the "white" half (see also Crime in St. Louis, Missouri)[citation needed]. However, North City used to have large Polish and German - among others - immigrant populations, evidenced by the churches they built, such as St. Stanislaus Kostka Church.

Aldermanic wards[edit]

The city can also be divided by the wards of the Board of Aldermen. These wards, however, change with every new census, and data is not as readily available for comparison across wards. Nevertheless, the wards are important in the functioning of the city, as the approval of the local Alderman is generally understood to be necessary before large projects may begin.
