A Fall Classic

Fall has almost completely set in and as the end of October approaches, St. Louis has earned the opportunity, once again, to host baseball’s Fall Classic. Baseball fans from around the country will soon arrive in downtown St. Louis with the anticipation of seeing some exciting baseball and experience a little bit of St. Louis culture.  In addition to the stage its set for the players, the World Series allows a city to promote itself to the rest of the country. Fans will likely take time to visit some of St. Louis’ architecture including the Arch, City Garden, Union Station or the Wainwright Building. As one of the world’s first skyscrapers, the Wainwright Building stands as a sort of embryo of a building type. It represents a part of the life and vibrancy that St. Louis experienced at the turn of the last century and for 122 years has stood on Chestnut Street as an icon to the city of St. Louis and the architectural community. As the city constantly changes, our Cardinals have been one constant over those 122 years. Cardinal Nation will gather and the Gateway Mall will be sea of brilliant red.
