It is self-evident that St. Louis affected me more deeply than any other environment has ever done. I feel that there is something in having passed one's childhood beside the big river, which is incommunicable to those people who have not. I consider myself fortunate to have been born here, rather than in Boston, or New York, or London.

Beautiful city! Those brick houses and apartments look fantastic... even the plain, undecorated ones are fantastically textured and proportioned. The rest of the world could still learn a few lessons from the Rust Belt.

More St. Louis:

Hope you guys are not getting sick of my St. Louis pics.



This is a rare scene in STL, because trash is almost always collected in the alley.









Volpi is a great old-fashioned store:












































This would be a VERY convenient place to live. Balcony view of the Metrolink station.






This the New Cathedral (it isn't new, but the old Cathedral is downtown near the arch)







The old Playboy Club:


Playboy Club's neighbor, the Krishnas.



Plenty of water in STL:


Hailing a water taxi or evidence of flood?



Old Courthouse:







St. Xavier. Known as the college church because it is located at St. Louis University:



Grandel Square in theatre district:





























New houses:



Convention Center:













Lobby of Union Station:













































St. Louis style pizza. You either love it or hate it. I love it.


Thanks for looking. Honestly, I would love to go back and spend days taking pictures of St. Louis. This is my 4th thread from a 48 hour visit, but, I feel as if I only scratched the surface.

Great updates. It's so nice to see a thread out a midwestern city that doesn't focus on the bad and ugly side of urban America! BTW, I LOVE that stained glass window!

I can't believe that such a nice looking city has such a bad reputation. Please post more of STL.

Ofc. we are not getting sick of ur pictures! It's nice set! And i didnt expect St. Louis is such cozy city!
If i could ask for something, that would be: plizz post less pictures in one post. 10 pics per post would be more than enough.
