It has what, 19,000 more? And with generally 1/3 of the city being "gone," there goes a 1/3rd of your commercial space already removed. I think it's more impressive for a city with slightly smaller population to have more vibrant commercial districts than a slightly larger one with a few, but hey, what do I know.

And just an FYI, Cincinnati was not 78 square miles back in the 1950's + 1940's urban renewal which St. Louis did not experience until later in life shifted Cincinnati's population early into the suburbs. I don't need to show that classic photo I always show of Queensgate getting wiped out in 1951 but it's a shame, that's for sure.
