Old North St. Louis

My father-in-law grew up in North St. Louis City in a Polish neighborhood which is now known as Old North St. Louis. As with many industrial cities, St. Louis and its neighborhoods have met with years of abandonment. Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and their revitalization efforts are gaining momentum. I look forward to attending the Old North House and Community Tour on Saturday, May 9.

October's Bright Blue Weather

O sun and skies and clouds of June
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather...
