St. Louis, MO –

St. Louis's Gaslight Square is starting a new life. Long remembered for the restaurants and clubs that once made it the city's hot spot, the square has long sat deteriorating.

But sometime next year, houses will stand where Gaslight Square once did. And while not everyone's pleased, others say it's time for a change.

KWMU's Tom Weber prepared this report.
