Update: Destroyed after being hit repeatedly by brick thieves. The City of St. Louis cut ties with Paul McKee’s Northside in June of 2018.
I checked in on brick theft in Saint Louis Place this weekend, stopping first at one of my (and many others’) favorite houses along St. Louis Ave. It was not pretty; while I’m not sure if it has changed much since the last time I photographed it, I still think it’s patently ridiculous that such a beautiful house could suffer this fate. See the house here in better days, before it was hit by brick theft.
Seriously, I understand some houses that have been hit are tucked away on isolated streets, but this is right on St. Louis Avenue.
