Update: Cleared for the new National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in 2017. The City of St. Louis cut ties with Paul McKee’s Northside in June of 2018.
This the infamous section of St. Louis Place where there is literally nothing left of the city that once existed here. Easily thousands of people once lived in the confines of these long blocks and now there is nothing.
Here is an aerial view of the area along 23rd Street.
It’s hard tell that you’re actually in the city here, and it looks more like you’re out in the country.
This area is often featured in articles about the ailing North Side–rightfully or wrongly–with the skyscrapers of Downtown not far away, at least geographically.
