Weekend View From The Eads Bridge

Over the weekend we walked down to see the progress at Luther Ely Smith Square, and the Arch. before heading back to our loft we went out on the pedestrian walkway of the Eads Bridge.

Note sure what this was about on the Eads

Next nice day we have I’d encourage you to go for a walk on the Eads.  Over the next year the view below will change dramatically.

    Lenor K. Sullivan’s improvements will be great for the riverfront, but I still can’t understand why in the world Washington Avenue needs to be removed. The old garage was an eyesore, but it certainly served a purpose — I believe it was SOM (?) who had a really transformational plan for the north archgrounds that included buried parking and a sexy, sexy bus terminus and drop-off point. This explorer’s garden — unless consistently activated (which NPS doesn’t seem to keen on) — is a head-scratcher.

      Oh, and the Eads bridge is a great walk/experience. Used to get off the Metrolink a stop early when heading into work so I could take a morning stroll across the Eads and into the city.
