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

^ 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.

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!
