With a new job at SLU I need advice on the area to look for an apt. My plan is to get something for 6 months while I learn the city. I need to be close to the University so I can go home for lunch to take out my dog. I am interested in an area with a dog park, restaurants,etc. I really like lofts, etc in old buildings, but that might be too far from the University. I will have late hours, so an area that's safe late at night is important. Ideas??????
