The Spirit of St. Louis

The Slow Death of a City Block: “A hundred years ago, fifty, even 30 years ago, the city was full of life, the streets vibrant and bustling, the neighborhoods full of people and activity.

Four decades of urban decay have left the city of St. Louis, Missouri with some of America’s most devastated urban landscapes.”
