    Pittsburgh and nBaltimore have architecture very much like St. Louis. I will bet there are clones of my house in both cities. For that reason, I have wanted to visit Pittsburgh.

    Pittsburgh had some beautiful churches- even in the suburbs- when I was growing up. Lots of stained glass and superb stonework. Pgh.Plate Glass "cathedral" is new and beautiful. The inclines, too! The aviary, Phipps conservatory and all the libraries. I haven't been back since 1990...lots of changes for the good I think.

    IL, I never thought of St. Louis having similar architecture to Pgh. and Baltimore. Pgh. and Baltimore even have similar speech patterns. I assumed it was that they had the same immigrant groups settling-lots of Italians, Czech, Hungarian craftspeople.

    Our architecture here is the most Eastern of the Midwest.

    One reason I loved The
    Wire (tv series) is because it all look like it was shot in St. Louis. It actually was shot in Baltimore.

    St. Louis is often said to be a confused city because we are Eastern in our architecture, Midwestern in our climate, a little bit Southern in our culture.

    My sister and I spent 4 days in St. Louis about 30 years ago and it was a nice city.

    DD got into the very selective chamber choir she had her heart set on. Her voice is an amazing instrument; I'm so happy she's getting back into singing and appreciating and sharing this wonderful gift!
