Thanks for these pictures of Saint Louis, Centropolis!

Saint Louis looks like a very vibrant city. I´ve liked the parade and the pictures of people having fun.

I didn´t know it was possible to climb up to the famous Gateway Arch! I´d like to see it with my own eyes.

Congrats for the pictures and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Wow! It has been hiding in plain sight.

@Danny, I hope you can go up in the Arch one day. The elevators cars are egg shaped. In fact, the ride up is part of the fun.

I've always thought the loop streetcar line was a great idea. Even better if they could tie the loop in with Metrolink tracks and have the cars occasionally run downtown. Much of Pittsburgh's line can support the new trains as well as the vintage streetcars, which I believe they still operate on special occasions.

I can't believe they spelled Red's last name wrong - it's Schoendienst.

The man's a Hall of Famer, show him some respect!

My OCD kicked in at the misspelling of Schoendienst. But that aside, great photos to recap a near miraculous month, and to capture the essence of a grand old city. St. Louis does grit well.

I love your threads. This one really captures my view of living in StL. October in StL can't be beat.
