Photo Flood 36: Clifton Heights

A charming and quiet residential community just south of the former bustle of industrial Ellendale and just west of The Hill, Clifton Heights possesses a rare insularity for a city neighborhood (partially due to its past as a private subdivision). Today, many of the older Victorian homes surrounding Clifton Heights Park provide a beautiful contrast to the serene park, and demonstrate the ambitions of early residents.

It has been almost three years since we last Flooded the venerable Saint Louis Art Museum. In that short time, they have added an entire new wing, a parking garage, and an outdoor sculpture garden. Also, on this Friday evening, the Museum will be screening JAWS for its Art Hill Film Series, hosting a bevy of delicious food truck fare, and more. slam009

Mini-Flood 35: STL-Style

Clever design duo, Jeff and Randy Vines set up shop on a corner storefront along Cherokee Street five years ago (in 2010), and built a t-shirt empire. That said, STL-Style is not merely a St. Louis-themed apparel boutique; it is the ethos for an entire movement to revitalize the city, fueled by two vocal brothers whose love for STL is without limits.

As STL-Style turned five, the Vines and 400 or so of their closest friends celebrated with the Half-Decade Escapade, an afternoon filled with food, booze, live music, and all of the color and character that makes this business truly special.  Photo Flood Saint Louis wouldn’t have missed this event for the world; hopefully you didn’t either!

Site of the only Civil War “battle” in St. Louis, Midtown has a storied presence in the city. Today, much of this section of Midtown is owned by Saint Louis University, which has been a controversial agent of change for the neighborhood.

Calvary Cemetery, at over 160 years old, is the final resting place for many of St. Louis’ most important residents. Dred Scott, Auguste Chouteau, and Tennessee Williams are among those buried there. This Roman Catholic Cemetery and its natural setting are an exciting visit for anyone with the history of our city in mind.
