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 Enterprise 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." 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

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.
