South City YMCA Demolition

My pictures will begin to have more blue sky in them, hopefully. This photograph was taken from Vanderburgh Avenue, one of the shortest streets in St. Louis, showing the now vanished YMCA on South Grand. It will be replaced by an apartment building.

Also, senior citizens interested in attending a two-week lecture series about my investigations of underground caves and cellars in St. Louis can still register on-line at OASIS for classes on April 16 and 23, both from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Search for class “135.”

  1. So sad to see this building being razed. As a teenager living on Castleman in the neighborhood, I frequented the YMCA for many of their fun activities.
    When I married and had children we took them there for swimming lessons. Many great memories.
