Boston is putting a 30-story tower on top of an existing 90-year-old parking garage. We can’t do this to save a 90 year old nice building? https://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2018/09/12/developers-want-build-foot-tower-atop-stuart-street-parking-garage/pOuF3WS92y8DKqVrKcyN3I/story.html Sent from my...
Amsterdam streetcars have sensors just inside the doors where you wave your pass. A man is stationed right there at each door watching. I’m guessing the car won’t move if someone gets on without a valid pass. He won’t let the door close possibly, or he signals the system somehow. He might be able to...
My daughter took the train from Chicago to St. Louis and it arrived about on time -- 5 hour ride. When you can take a train the same distance from London to Paris in about 2 hours, you realize what could be. I would hope when they get the go-ahead for high speed, they start a non-stop train from Chi...
The Rams drew more than half a million folks downtown every fall on game days. Most are locals so don't necessrily fill hotels, and a lot of restaurants downtown were closed at lunch time anyway on Sundays ahead of Rams games. But I'm sure they sold a lot of food and drink inside the stadium. How ma...
My wife and I went over there on Father's Day and couldn't get in because they had a buffet and you had to have reservations that day only. They hit their limit for people without reservations. So we didn't eat, but we did walk around the hall. It looked like a lot of fun, actually. Oompah band, big...

Here is a photo from last night's ballgame.

Flew out on SW last week and took a couple of photos. I didn’t know 3 Kings was open towards the D gates. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180708/ee8ffb94dd62b01ad01aaed09cf372dd.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180708/800b9a365baa7d68f7df2f77d6ff67e3.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Yes, the downtown section has always been the worst part of the plan to me. It makes no sense and totally misses the opportunity to better serve downtown west. I agree. As long as there’s a direct, relatively seamless connection at Civic Center, a route running straight up 14th Street may be prefer...
I encourage everyone, when buying a new car, to get the option that detects pedestrians, bikes, and other cars and slams on the brakes if you don’t. I’ve had it on my Subaru since 2013. The technology is mature and works. And it is now standard on all 2018 Toyotas. It is getting cheaper. When I hear...
I think that true BRT would be the best move for St. Louis, with routes along Jefferson, Grand and Kingshighway (Broadway and Natural Bridge/N. Florissant + 12th/Gravois too?) probably being in the same ballpark of an investment as N/S Metrolink. That being said, the time and money that these studi...
Saw one in San Jose this week in San Jose Santana Row & snapped a photo. Image

Interesting opinion piece. I liked that he delved into some of the deeper issues with national expansion presented in the museum. But I think typical East Coast bias creeps in with his parting comment “hollow to the core”. It is something he would probably never say about the Washington Monument or ...
It would be nice to have a high rooftop bar that can see the river over the top of the wall. Also, improve the walk under the freeway from Busch and the Oyster Bar to St Mary of Victories church. (I went to a wedding there once. Beautiful inside.) I still hope that someday a new bridge will be built...
The LA Rams have the second worst fan base in the NFL. No matter; actual fans are meaningless in today's NFL: https://www.yahoo.com/sports/cowboys-patriots-eagles-nfls-best-fans-study-finds-142019728.html LA Rams were dead last (32nd) in 2 of the 3 categories -- How much fans spend on team tickets/...
I would like the city to enact instant run-off elections. Instant run-off elections are just like current elections, except voters are asked to rank all the candidates they find acceptable when there are 3 or more candidates on the ballot. Then if no candidate gets a majority of the #1 rankings, the...
By enormous event, I assume that means 1/8 of the dome seating at best. That is actually pretty big for the dome nowadays. http://www.bnd.com/news/local/community/ofallon-progress/qtxwv2/picture110328372/ALTERNATES/FREE_960/BOASTL1 I searched for the events scheduled for the dome in February 2019 th...
How about reopening the Millennium Hotel as a Hard Rock Hotel, with signage visible from the Arch.

So the 2026 World Cup will be hosted by the US, Canada, and Mexico. There will be 80 matches at 16 sites, from what I heard on the radio. The 16 sites will be chosen from these 23 cities. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DfkiwROW4AEh6GM.jpg Senator Blunt put out a tweet promoting KC, MO. From what I unde...
Went to the History Museum yesterday and saw the very good St. Louis panoramas and the Muny 100 year anniversary exhibits. Coming out of the parking lot, I caught a view of the Trolley. It had to stop briefly for a car that crossed the tracks coming out of the parking lot and didn't quite get out of...
Am I the only one disappointed that there don't seem to be any concerts or public music events on the Arch grounds, or riverfront, so far? I was thinking there might be weekly music at the bottom of the Arch steps. Wasn't that the whole point of raising it a few feet above the high risk flooding lev...
Gary, do you have any idea of the remaining political steps that have to happen for this California division to be realized? Or are you just having fun? The California split will really be on the ballot in November. But polls show residents oppose splitting by a margin of 4-1, so it will fail. If i...
I see California will be voting on splitting the state into 3 states. Each new "state" will have one of the three largest cities. Their state called "Southern California" will include San Diego. The state called "California" will included LA. The state called "Northern California" will include San F...
So what happens to the properties? Will they be sold off individually? Or does the City have a new developer lined up. Does anyone want to buy the properties? Is it now the city's responsibility to stem property deterioriation?
There are only 3 events scheduled for 5 nights in the dome currently. Drum Corps International on July 15, Taylor Swift Sep 18, and Gateway Dirt Nationals Nov 29 - Dec 1. Drums sell seats on one side low for 1/8th of the dome. Taylor sells seats for 2/3 of the dome. Dirt Nationals sell tickets for l...
