I didn't know St. Louis had bears running around on the loose!
Cool pics, and yes, STL is definitely underrated.
"A single round-trip flight between Chicago and Frankfurt, Germany burns about 3.5 tons of carbon dioxide--that's about what a medium-sized car in the United States burns for an entire year."

Great set from a city I'm not familiar with. Lots to keep the eye happy.

Hey, Matt. You started a fight. Unless you have comments on the pictures or some constructive criticism, don't bother posting in this thread. How you thought you'd report part of fight of which you started and come out the other side unscathed is beyond me. If you have any questions, message me.

Thanks StlGasm for posting your interesting pics of St. Louis. I've visited St. Louis a couple of times for business conferences. I enjoyed it and found it to be very convenient (rail connection from airport to downtown). I didn't get out much but I could tell from the train ride and other interactions that the city had some funkiness (a good thing) and realness about it.
Just so everyone knows, that pic of the guy with the camera is neither STLgasm or me. It's our friend who was in town from NYC doing a photojournalism project about Rust Belt cities. Thanks for the kind words everyone!
