Stunning holiday shots of Saint Louis! Gotta <3 the Gateway Arch indeed!

And question: did you take some of your shots from an apartment tower? Plus, what is that large building with a dome right next to a freeway... Is that the City Hall?

@ madonnagirl

Thx fieldsofdream for stooping by, now the fireworks photos I took them from underneath the arch but the first photos from pg15 I took them from the top of the Arch, and about that dome next to the freeway pg 15 photo #4 I belive thats a part of the Millenium hotel. There is another huge dome next to the highway which is the photo underneath and that's the Rams football stadium Edward Jones dome, capacity 65,000





This is the City Hall

Yeah that's one of my favorite structures in St. Louis and don't forget St. Louis was French so it has a French influence and I found some interesting facts for you:

An architectural competition for the design of the building was won with the French-styled plan that was inspired by the Hotel de Ville or City Hall of Paris. Its ornamental dormer windows and its former towers also recall architectural elements of the Chateau de Chambord on the Loire River in France. The design was selected after a national competition of 37 entries.

Construction began on July 19, 1890 and was completed on November 5, 1904. No bonds were issued to finance its construction, which is why it took 14 years to complete the building. The budget was limited at $2 million, but the final cost was only $1,787,159.16.



@okach1 we haven't had any winter so far but I'll post some photos made by this time last year

I knew it! That looks splendid indeed! I'd say that City Hall is indeed a great symbol for Saint Louis, but I believe that the Gateway Arch really tops the cake.

Absolutely if we talk about an architectural structure in St. Louis the Getaway Arch tops everything else

Is that suburban Saint Louis? Looks like a mix of autumn foliage and winter wonderland rolled into one indeed. Superb!

Ah ok. Awesome. I really love the frozen lake, as well as the trees that look like autumn colors.

Splendid shots! And when is that Hot Air Balloon Festival in Saint Louis? Those balloons really look pristine over the city, flying over one of the buildings! As for the city overview from the other side of the river, man, I cannot believe the (sharp) difference between the city side of the river and the other! It's just startlingly interesting!

Looks like the bikers sport some Harley Davidson bikes, eh? Really cool! Also, is The Pavilion W a mall or something? It looks more like a hotel to me.
