Better watch out, there a few people in this forum who are die-hard Detroit. Wouldn't want you to get busted.

I'm sure Detroit does have some good qualities, but I didn't vote for it.

Here's some St. Louis perspective for everyone: a medium large midwestern city with southern flair and deep rich aura of history, culture, and urban living.

Here's the skyline everyone knows:



So what's behind this "skyline" everyone associates st. louis with:


thats a stretch of at least 4-5 miles and thats not even including clayton below:






midtown

forest park bordering central west end


and heres some photos for a little urban perspective:




Central West End (past mid town)







city museum:




university city - washington university, fontbonne university, place where chuck berry still plays, birth of nelly, muphy lee, etc. listed top 10 must see streets in america by ANA, 2nd in midwest after michigan avenue










Forest Park, home of 1904 worlds' fair, introduction of mustard, ice cream cones, iced tea, etc and summer olympics:





same area at night:






1904:



typical urban neighborhood park:



washington avenue:






urban living:

















































And not too far from St. Louis within a 1.5 hr drive, this natural beauty from the ozarks:














St. Louis is a remarkable urban gem and on my top 10 US cities list. It's a must see and I highly recommend a visit in the summer!!! that's why it's my favorite river city.

Photos thanks to urban-photos.com and urbanstl.com!

Default Minneap's

Minneapolis... what's not to love... except for the cold. But I think there have been times where all midwest cities have accepted the cold weather... that's what makes us all special. All underappreciated too... that's sad... west coast east coast has nothing on the midwest. Aside form NY and LA.. haha.
