Alerted by a post at Vanishing St. Louis, I decided to use the new St. Louis Centre Memorial Parking Garage last Friday. That was a big mistake.
I had already seen the new exterior, but I wanted the opportunity to see the new parking garage built in the floors of the old mall. I must say, it is the most open, light-filled parking garage I have ever parked my car in, but when I tried to exit by a staircase, I was greeted by signs saying that the exit was for emergencies only. I had to go back up the stairs, checked to verify that there was in fact no sign saying that I couldn’t use that staircase, and eventually just took an elevator down to 7th Street. What a bizarre place.
