gateway to the west

thin slicing

Come to find out there's a reason the St. Louis Arch is so famous -- and here all along I just figured it had a good publicist.

No: it's more than that. It's freakin' cool. Proto-Gehryesque, soaring stainless and pitch perfect into the sky.

Many thanks to B1-67er who suggested (in true b1- style -- which is to say, more firm direction than suggestion) that I NOT miss it while I was town.

And so I didn't.

depth depends on your p.o.v.

I saw the greatest documentary on the building of the arch, and it is an amazing piece of construction. glad you got to take it in!

I loved the arch so much that I thought I could become obsessed by it, like Stella and Delaunay became obsessed with the Brooklyn Bridge and the Eiffel Tower, respectively.
