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.
I have a different attitude compared to most people, I realized. I don’t see these buildings as losses (though they will be demolished for the NGA), but rather lost potential. They’re beautiful; they could be fixed up, easily. But nobody cares. The utter lack of imagination in the leadership of this city will lead to further decline and failure.

Look at the brickwork on the modest little houses in the last two pictures! The second from last looks like brick lace to me!
What a shame to lose such beautiful architecture.
