SUV Blocked Pedestrian Path At The Boulevard

January 21, 2016 Featured, Retail, St. Louis County 5 Comments

Last Saturday morning we drove out to The Boulevard to get a gift at Crate & Barrel.  When we arrived and left a large SUV was parked blocking the crosswalk.

The owner was sitting in his SUV blocking the crosswalk when we arrived and when we left

A person was inside, but I didn’t confront him other than giving him a dirty look as I slowly walked around with my cane.

This person was either:

  1. Waiting to pick up someone who was shopping, or
  2. Security

I emailed the property manager at Pace Properties, asking if this person was security. I’ve not heard back.

      In all fairness, SUV type vehicles are the most popular these days, so one would figure that to be the case.

    I’d be surprised if security was driving an SUV which would have cost $70k when new.

    More likely somebody waiting to pick someone up. Yes they had their head up their ass but I doubt it was malicious. Most people in this vehicle centric age just don’t give pedestrian consideration one second of thought (we hate ourselves so much that we build brand new neighborhoods without sidewalks). Just take a look up and down your street to see who shoveled their section of sidewalk the day after it snowed….those who didn’t clearly don’t care much for the pedestrian but their ignorance isn’t likely intentional.

Most are aware of the former horse trough in the Ivory Triangle, where Ivory, Schirmer, & Virginia Avenue meet. Although it's no longer used for that purpose, it's the last remaining horse trough in the city. In the time before automobiles, there were dozens of large watering troughs provided by the city, and hundreds of smaller ones, usually supplied & maintained by tavern owners. In a survey conducted by the city in September 1890, over 130,000 animals were seen to be drinking from the 38 city troughs in a single day. In 1916, there were still 344 troughs in use. By 1932, there were 71 smaller troughs, but only 8 large troughs, located at 3rd & Washington; 4th & Chouteau; Broadway & Cass; Leffingwell & Wash; 20th & East Grand; Ivory & Schirmer; and two that were removed that year when Market Street was widened, at Market & Compton, and Market & Jefferson. As late as 1937, the trough at Leffingwell & Wash was still serving 60 horses a day. Remaining in operation until 1958, it was removed in 1963, when the street was repaved. If you're wondering where this was, the name of Wash Street was changed to Cole in 1941. The second to last horse trough was the one at 4th, Chouteau, & Broadway, where water was disconnected in 1950. Turned into a flower planter, it was removed in 1960, and donated to the Museum of Transportation. Photo: Horse trough - Jefferson & Market, 1932
