The conversation wasn't about if all airports are great compared to STL, it was about if STL is a great airport. It is not.


the sentiment seems to be whipsawing between extremes...

Re: STL International Airport

Found this on UrbanSTL site. Posted there and thought it was pretty impressive. I fly back and forth from STL on Southwest and find the airport in STL very nice. It just feels like a big airport to me, especially flying out of KCI. Our new airport will help, but not sure if it will have that "...

Re: STL International Airport

I have never been in Lambert, but if PDX is the standard for impressive, I’m just not sure what in the fuck people are talking about. The only US airport I can ever remember enjoying was Honolulu. haha ok. i think folks are talking past each other. if i want impressive i'll go to the international ...

Re: STL International Airport

I surely wouldn't call STL impressive compared to PDX or something, except in it's ease of use. I really could not ask for more though out of a small/mid city airport except vastly more direct flights to europe, etc. i'm there in 12 minutes from home or work, it's clean, it has passable food/drink, ...

Re: Troost developments

That corridor (as well as some of the midtown Troost nodes) would absolutely explode if 2 things happened: redevelop the Landing site, and upgrade the Troost Max to true BRT. Troost is low hanging fruit for the first time in probably 50 years. i thought it was low hanging fruit when the sidewalks w...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

minneapolis is probably a better comparison. denver is on a much more radical path than anything i’ve seen in the midwest and is changing by the month.

I don’t think he’s saying that he thinks KC is ahead of STL. I think instead he is saying we should look up to our successful cousin, not our struggling sister. i sort of edited my post once i grasped that. just had a lumbar injection (slipped disc) and am a bit out of sorts. : :shock: also, i pref...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

But is surprising they aren't keeping many higher educated, about same level as KC despite KC not being a major college town. columbus has to compete with quite a few more cities, including partially-resurgent rustbelt places like cleveland, corporate stalwarts like cincinnati, and of course indian...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

sort of OT, but i think people (slightly) mis-characterize columbus as being like indianapolis (which i don't think has as much depth as kc) when it in fact does have some decent bones. http://thirdgrademapskills.weebly.com/uploads/2/4/4/1/24412832/7203520_orig.jpg http://thirdgrademapskills.weebly....

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

Is impressive KC area ranks relatively high with Bachelors+ degrees given no major universities directly in metro. Surprisingly higher than Columbus, which has one of largest schools. Few people want to live in Columbus or Lawrence. Kansas City’s a little bit more easy to stomach. few people want t...

Re: Unbuilt KC

It was supposed to be Bernstein-Rein's new HQ, and it started being built as a Moshe Safdie design, then the developer got in a fight with JE Dunn over something or other and construction stopped and the partially-built structure sat for a few years before being sold, torn down, and rebuilt to hous...
