Steven asks…

Where is the best place to live for someone with respiratory problems?

My husband has COPD, or ashmatic/bronchial issues…we live in San Antonio, and he has flare ups about every three to four months. Would a coastal city be better?

Administrator answers:

“There’s no such thing as an ‘asthma-free’ city,” says Mike Tringale, Director of Communications at Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This is from a February 8, 2006, press release announcing the 2006 U.S. Asthma Capitals.
Topping the list are Scranton, PA, Richmond, VA, and Philadelphia, PA. Only one southern city, 4th ranked Atlanta, GA, made the top ten this year. You can check out the entire list of 100 Worst Cities for Asthma in 2006 from the AAFA website.
This is the third year AAFA has ranked cities for asthma. During the first two years, southern cities took the top three spots with the exception of third-ranked St. Louis, MO in 2005. St. Louis has consistently scored in the top ten all three years. In 2004, KY and TN topped the list, and last year (2005) Little Rock, AR (directly east of my western AR location) and St. Louis, MO (directly to my north) took the #2 and #3 spots. This year brought some surprises, as the North Central and North Eastern seaboard areas seem to dominate. See the 2004, 2005, and 2006 lists to see how your area fares.

Charles asks…

What are the safest neighborhoods within 15 miles of Cleveland clinic?

What to expect for winter weather; temperatures, snowfall, streets being plowed?
And what about the crime rate?
We lived in the city in St. Louis, MO and I got tired of being approached outside my apartment by a small group of people begging for money, or being followed into a deli by someone begging me to buy them something to eat.
We don’t want to live in an area where we will live in fear of being held at gunpoint or having our home broken into.

Administrator answers:

Highland Heights a few years ago was rated as one of the top 50 small cities in the U.S. By

Beachwood is a relatively exclusive community in northeast Ohio with a massive tax base, which means excellent services and relatively low taxes. Cleveland’s upscale shopping mecca is located there and in adjacent Lyndhurst (Beachwood Place and Legacy Village), another community perhaps to consider.

There are some very nice neighborhoods convenient to the Clinic in nearby Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights, although the cities as a whole are more challenged financially and socially than Beachwood. Cities with major malls often have inflated crime statistics because of thefts associated with the malls. Keep that in mind when considering communities such as Beachwood.

Pepper Pike is another very upscale community that might be on the edge of your 15-mile limit.

Bratenahl is your closest option if you want to live on Lake Erie, although Lakewood is a pleasant community but further from the Clinic.

Check out the Cleveland Magazine “Rating the Suburbs” 2012 edition. It’s not available online. You also can check cities in Wikipedia and


Downtown Cleveland has very convenient transportation to the Clinic (the 24/7 Healthline bus rapid) and a growing residential population (reportedly over 10,000) mostly on East 4th St. And in the Warehouse District. However, there are panhandlers.

Mandy asks…

Is St Louis Missouri a safe place to vacation with a family?

So my wife want to take my son on an adventure away from home and we are both college students so not a lot of money our son is 5. We found train tickets, hotel to and from St Louis within our price range and were very excited. We looked at the activities we wanted to do and the Bus takes you to all of those locations. We Were super excited, but my parents came to visit and told us how unsafe the City was, and how dangerous it is to ride the bus there. The hotel we found was in Cahokia and the bus ride to the musems is about an hour give or take. We also wanted to take him to the zoo. We planned on staying a week. Could someone who is familiar with St Louis give us the 411 on this area? Is St Louis any more dangerous than San Diego, Denver, Chicago ect….. Are the Metro bus lines and stations safe? Any info would be appreciated I was doing some research online and it is rated as number 2 on the city crime list in the country.
Renting a car increases the expense significantly. That is why we were opting for the bus/train method or just beating the pavement. We chose Cahokia because there is a hotel there that is reasonable and in our price range. I’d love to stay down town but the hotels are running closer to 120 per night and this is a week long vacation. 60 per night sounded more doable….also rental car looks like around 200 for the week which also increases the vacation to out of our reach.

Administrator answers:

Cahokia and a lot of parts of East St. Louis in the first place are not good places.To be taking buses back and forth from there St. Louis and around is not also a good idea.
A better idea would to rent a car when you got to where you want to stay for a hotel.
I would stay closer to the South County area than downtown and drive to where you want.
Here are some website to check out prices for hotels/motels:

Since the sun rises in the east I can’t imaging any better place than sitting on the steps of the Arch and looking across the river.
