holy shit!

where will everyone be? its supposed to technically cross the sw corner of forest park, so i'm thinking about setting up shop there. somewhere a bit further south like the upper ozarks might be better here.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

St. Louis built in a way different time with a lot of federal money available....and traffic problems that spurred people to want other options. The capital cost to build the initial phase of MetroLink was $465 million. Of that amount, $348 million was supplied by the Federal Transit Administration...

Re: HopCat at Westport/Broadway

cool...they seem to value out-of-doors beers, which is the only way to fly. they are building an allegedly large back patio where none existed.

Re: HopCat at Westport/Broadway

what is y'alls opinion on this place? we are getting one in u-city and i imagine that i will frequent it quite often. all the "cool" non-chain brewery/beer bar stuff goes to the city, so i'll take a midwestern chain beer bar anyday...i mean it looks ok. i imagine it is..ok.

this is insane! “We have a very fast-flowing, managed river that’s really constructed for commerce,” says Hoelscher, the sewer agency’s CEO. “We don’t have beaches. It’s not used for recreation.” In short, it’s a river that doesn’t need a lot of coddling." there's a HUGE sailboating/boating com...

Re: Shanghai trip/photos

Great pictures. I note the haze in the area in all the skyline pictures. Is that just humidity or is it pollution? I hear Beijing can be particularly bad and would not be surprised if Shanghai had similar issues. I've never been to China. Would love to go there and Japan. My company has (and has ha...

Re: Shanghai trip/photos

Very interesting. Makes me kinda want to visit China, although I'd hate to go solo since I'm not Han. Which may be somewhat true, but probably deserves harsh punishment. boatloads of europeans, americans, south americans, some africans in shanghai. outside of central shanghai not so much. a place d...

Re: Shanghai trip/photos

Thanks for sharing--how did you find getting around? Pretty simple? yes, actually. the shanghai metro - although vast - is very modern and it's very simple to buy tickets. english is everywhere...older people were harder to interact with, and would get on my case on the HSR for things like not stow...

I've just returned from China, thought I would share some photos. I have more instagram photos which I am currently shuffling through that have more transit related stuff that I may post. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2867/33982083985_1275ed4d86_o.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2824/33596931390_1...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Another airport anecdote. Just flew in and out of Seattle. It's a big airport but it took me about 5 minutes to get off the plane and get to the baggage claim. After collecting luggage, I was out of the airport in a few seconds. Albeit, as I was taking light rail, the walk to the light rail termina...

Re: Clayton, MO CBD Boom (Centene, etc)

there was another proposal on hanley further north that was shot down, probably the neighbors torpedoed it. kind of dumb considering that hanley already has a little residential highrise cluster. i'd almost rather see more slender, tall highrise stuff along there than these squat, chunky proposals t...

Re: Clayton, MO CBD Boom (Centene, etc)

I heard Clayton described as a second downtown for StL a decade ago. Clayton has been described by a lot of names: 1. "The New Downtown" 2. St. Louis' "Second Downtown" 3. St. Louis' "Uptown" 4. St. Louis County's "Downtown" Unfortunately, while downtown Clay...
