Now ya tell me.  Back in the late '70s  :old: , we were driving from Columbus to the Western states.  About 1 or 2 a.m., we got off the freeway to look for a gas station and a snack... in East Saint Louis.  Didn't stop anywhere, including at most traffic lights, and it seemed to take forever to find a ramp back onto the freeway from the surface streets.


70 and 64 pass hard by East St Louis, so I'm not sure it would matter at that point. Take 270 through Alton if you want to avoid it.

Seems to show them leaving East St. Louis, and crossing the 55 bridge into St. Louis. I don't know what the city is like post-2020, but in the before time I was never worried about turning off where they did. Looks like downtown. Not hard to get into a bad neighborhood from there, of course.

East St. Louis is still dangerous, but it isn't as random as driving on the north side.

Maybe a rare occurence, but then you only have to get murdered once to ruin your whole day.

What is that?
Islamic sex dolls.  Do they blow themselves up?

In particular, it show the impact of 8 mile road. It really is the other side of the tracks phenomenon.
