St. Louis Place and Elsewhere 017

Update: Demolished 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.

It drives me crazy to see these beautiful houses sitting like this, held hostage by McKee first (he’s apparently toast now) and the Quixotic quest for the Defense Mapping Agency.

Even in their abandoned, deteriorating state, forsaken by their city, they are still beautiful.

The trees reach out and grab at the buildings, almost as if they want to devour the bricks for food.

No one drives these streets anymore.

    It is such a shame what has happened to north St. Louis. It seems that people like McKee, who HAVE held the north side hostage, should be held accountable. These buildings are beautiful, even in their decayed state.
