Well, if that's a DC far north makes sense. There's a lot of trucking and distribution off Hall and North Broadway . . . The shot looks a little like a matte painting to me. Doesn't quite look like the skyline, though it is remarkably close. And the arch is much more obviously archlike from up that way than I remembered. (I'm so used to seeing it off Gravois on the south and Rte 3 on the north, where you'd think it was an obelisk. A very big obelisk.) Anyway . . . I'll have to look that up. My wife might appreciate it.
^I'm sure the image was doctored. I remember a magazine ad many years ago for some whiskey that featured the Arch, and the skyline behind it was artificially filled in with a bunch of tall buildings. Looked great, but obviously fake to us St. Louisans.
It's not terrible. The rhythm feels about right, though between downtown and the west end. It's not quite that continuous. Close, but shorter. But you can still Forest Park Gap. I'm just not sure where you could actually get the vantage, other than maybe from the top of the Bissel's Point water tower. (And it's almost certainly further than that.) And the buildings look a little generic, even at that fuzzy resolution.

St. Louis makes national news again (and not for something good)...

With Chicago, it's all murder, murder, murder ... but why?

Chicago's murder rate of 17.5 per 100,000 residents doesn't crack nation's top 10

St. Louis tops list of cities with highest murder rates, highest violent crime


http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/06/us/chicag ... index.html
^ this CNN article paid for by the Chicago board of tourism.

again, if we extend arbitrary boundaries to compare similar populations, St. Louis' and Chicago's murder rates are very similar. this just reads like an apology for Chicago. Chicago doing what Chicago does best: throwing other cities under the bus.
Is There Enough Demand for Upscale Apartments?

I don't watch the One America New channel normally, but when I turn through it, I sometimes see regular reporting with a photo of the Arch and river behind the anchor. Is there a OAN studio in St. Louis?

St.Louis's biggest setback is North St.Louis and our leaders have to start looking at North St.Louis as an asset cause it truly is ... Lets bring development well over Delmar so the entire city is experiencing growth.. I believe the area we shun the most which is North St.Louis is our biggest changer in the region...
Keep St.Louis brick!

America’s 100 Richest Places

“The industries that are located in the so-called fly-over states don’t pay nearly the same as those on the coasts,” said Richard Yamarone, an economist at Bloomberg Intelligence.
Yes, that's very tru...
“Earnings for farmers, ranchers and manufacturers simply pale in comparison to the larger salary and bonus-laden occupations.”
Wait, so if you're in a "fly-over" state basically your main options for a higher paying career are farming, ranching, or manufacturing? Well that statement's not a little bit insulting to pretty much every major city not on a north-south coast...

For the record, there were two St. Louis-area municipalities on their list. Ladue ranked 10th with an average median household income (in 2015 numbers) of $274,583. Town & Country was 32nd, at $253,643/household (and a pretty significant drop of $14,212/household from the 2014 numbers).

According to Fox 2's Gerron Jordan on Twitter, Twisted Ranch in Soulard was on Buzzfeed, now the lines to get in are extra long. I think that is interesting.

St.Louis Zoo has won USA todays readers choice award for being the nations best zoo.. Congrats to our world class zoo.
Really good feature story in the American airlines magazine showcasing the strengths of stl, business growth, research, logistics, education. Glad to see the promotion!
^ any way to access it online? i went to the American Way Magazine website but didn't see anything about it.
Nonsense article, but of course, it's Breitbart. Don't know why you even posted it.

The study has some dubious methodology (relying on the 2014 CBO analysis without providing context). It also concludes that 25k workers will receive a wage increase, which is not mentioned in the piece, for reasons which I can only provide speculation. Also, the 1000 jobs "lost" includes lack of jobs gained, so people would not necessarily be losing their jobs. Also, there's this from the methodology appendix from the study:

Our tables summarize the number of affected workers, employment loss, and the distribution of employment loss by sex, education, race, age and industry in the private sector. A rule of thumb for minimum sample size required to achieve a reasonably accurate estimate of the employment loss is to require at least 30,000 people be in the relevant category. For example, if there are fewer than 30,000 people projected to be in a particular industry category, the Bureau of Labor Statistics would not report the estimate due to a lack of reliability based on the variance of the estimate relative to its mean.

The study basically acknowledges that its findings are not significant. Pretty safe to throw this one in the garbage.
The emancipation proclamation cost 3.5 million African-American jobs.
It's all give and take St.Louis City will eventually recoup those jobs within time that's if the state of Missouri doesn't intervene like it has been doing lately.
Noticed the Pageant was working on this all week. Looked like it was going to be a nice event.
Not sure why STLToday didn't give it front page treatment. (I forgot, it's STLToday)
