The last time I strolled down McRee Avenue in McRee Town was back in January of 2020. After my recent trip to France, I have been finding that I have been needing a French pastry fix more often, so my Saturday sojourns have been leading to Patisserie Chouquette more often.
The new construction is interesting, but what I really find interesting are the holdouts. Who are they? I want to talk to them but I never see them out when I visit.
Visiting McRee Town always raises questions for me: such large scale redevelopment has not been duplicated again in St. Louis in this manner. Will it happen again, or is this a one time phenomenon?
