** "The Grove" district, centered around a portion of Manchester Avenue in UsefulNotes/StLouis. Houses a string of gay- and lesbian-"friendly" bars, art venues, and shops. The strip also houses a branch of the renowned soul-food restaurant [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweetie_Pie%27s Sweetie Pie's]] (link to TheOtherWiki). Not actually in or adjacent to either of [=StL's=] neighborhoods with "Grove" in their official names.

** Subverted in San Antonio, Texas, despite the claims of any neighborhood with two or more adjacent Gay bars. San Antonio's opinion on homosexuality changed practically over night, so by the time the city would actually allow a gay neighborhood there wasn't really a need for one. So while a few neighborhoods try to capitalize on this trope, there isn't really a gayest place in the city.

** Historically, New Hope, PA (a QuirkyTown roughly halfway between New York and Philadelphia where the Old York Road crosses the Delaware) was popular with gay Philadelphians and (to a lesser extent) gay New Yorkers as a weekend/short vacation getaway. This is less pronounced today, but the influence can still be seen.



** Fire Island Pines and Cherry Grove on Fire Island are popular with the gay community.

** Fire Island Pines and Cherry Grove on Fire Island are popular with the gay community. (In one story, Creator/DavidSedaris talks about a guy whose apartment he once cleaned used references to Fire Island to signal that he wanted to have sex with Sedaris, not realizing that he had mixed up Sedaris--who actually cleaned apartments--with a gay "house cleaning" service that actually...well...[[TheOldestProfession they didn't so much clean your house as "clean your house"]].)

*** Older gays with money have tended to migrate a few blocks south to the Bay View neighborhood. There's even a sign directing people to the ferry.
