A couple weekends back I was flipping through the cable guide and found a show about gangs. It caught my eye because it was about gang violence in St Louis and since that's where I'm originally from I thought it might be interesting. It really wasn't and the two gangs they covered were ones I'd never even heard about although they made them sound like they were the biggest threats in St Louis history. The show didn't explain how they got so dangerous when their turf was about four blocks in north city.

During the show they kept calling St Louis by two nicknames: the 314 and Hustle City. Ok, so I'll cut them some slack on the 314 thing. I've never actually heard anyone call it that, but I'll let it slide since it is conceivable that someone could call it that. But Hustle City? They said St Louis is called that because of the large number of hustlers there.

Ok, so my question is, has anyone ever actually heard St Louis referred to as Hustle City?

Nope, this is new to me. I still hear Mound City, and that's an archaic moniker that went out of style with streetcars (I don't hear it often, but I do my best to help keep it alive.)

There are still active organizations in the city that use "Mound City" in their names. I have never heard Hustle City before though.

Don't you be playing with my emotions that way. I am still in my mourning garments for losing that show, so to even suggest a way that the show could return from the dead is just too good a notion to ponder.
