In my exploration of St. Louis, I sometimes come across places which offer glimpses of other parts of the city. Since most of St. Louis is relatively flat, these views are a real treat. Those areas that are most likely to catch my eye are the more dense neighborhoods that include the Central West End, Midtown and Downtown. This weekend, while exploring The Hill North of Interstate 44, I captured this view of the CWE:
The fact that The Hill offers good views of other city neighborhoods seems obvious, but to me it’s a recent discovery. Although this view is new, and the perspective is unique, my favorite views of the city are still those seen while driving down Highway 40. Too bad it’s such a dangerous place to take photos.
Other Vantage Points:
Above view is from Mitchell and Highland.
From Carondelet Coke’s Coal Loader.
And Finally a similar view to one that I used in my post on the Cass Avenue Bridge a week or so ago.
