You spent some serious time with these excellent photos. Even getting them uploaded kept you away from whatever else you may have wanted to do. Thanks much.
Thanks and I needed a break from watching football all day. Felt good to get out for a bit.

Re: Liberty Memorial - Union Station - CC

Thanks and it's a "new" used camera since dslr's are out of my price range but I've always wanted one so I bought it second hand. These were taken with a canon t3i.

Re: 14th and Wyandotte Tower

I noticed Bill Maas is the listing agent. Wonder if he'll throw in an autographed football to justify that price for a hole in the ground!

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Current KCI opened the day that a hijacking ended up changing airline security forever and immediately made the KCI design outdated. How ironic would it be if COVID19 did the same for passenger health and our current new terminal design? So much touching and filthy surfaces with current security pr...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

The brickwork preservation on this project is absolutely phenomenal, getting rid of the grime and graffiti without completely removing the original painted signage must have been a challenge. I love the way they preserved so many of the interior historical elements while weaving in just the right am...

Re: What did this building 8th and Bank St. used to look like?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but that location is almost exactly where the 8th street tunnel began its decent underground (2nd of two holes that were dug for the tunnel) to west bottoms. Some good pics of that area at this site http://hyperblogal.blogspot.com/2010/04/under-city.html

There is NO authentic New York Delicatessen in this town and it's a damn shame!! It actually makes me downright sick. Therefore you aint gonna find a good bagel with lox anywhere.

Re: Bond Bridge (formerly Paseo)

This is in the plans.  The original Grand Boulevard Viaduct was supposed to be two side-by-side structures with four lanes and a path.  Budget constraints in the 1990s meant that only one got built.  With Front Street being four-laned below the bluff, the next step will be add the second viaduct an...

Re: Bond Bridge (formerly Paseo)

The greatest thing that they could do is to somehow add a bike/running lane to the grand ave. bridge that goes from the river market to Berkley Park although it's currently not wide enough.  I can't tell you how many times I've seen people almost get hit.  I know you can take the Main Street path bu...

Disney building a theme park in Camdenton Mo!  I really don't mean to be obnoxious but that is hysterical.  I'm sure all the Disney execs are sitting around the board room thinking about how nice it would be to build a new multibillion $$ theme park in Camdenton, Missouri.  It is after all the next ...

Re: Grand Opera House, 710 and 711 Main to be razed.

Of course a development is the best scenario however if it comes down to either a surface lot or a green space I would go with the green space every time.  I'm sure somebody had good intentions with the pergola but it does look a bit out of place, its pretty obvious they were on a strict budget.  It...
