Kiener plaza, December

So while you’re probably sick of holiday music (which is why we didn’t bother reposting the “Xmas in July” mixtape), we still have a little backlog of material to carry us into the new year photographically. So now that you’re done sorting through holiday gifts and candle holders, we thought we’d share our favorite views of the city this time of year. You know besides that window display on Macy’s, there are other view of St. Louis around the holidays that remind you that this is an actual city.

Kiener Plaza usually feels detached from the rest of the city when it isn’t being used as a rallying point, and soon enough there should be another debate about the space when Gateway Mall plans pop up again. But on one foggy night in early December, you could almost use this open space to realize downtown in it’s holiday glory, when the joining of lighted trees begins to blur with landmarks and the lights of buildings, creating a skyline of festive light speckles. In other words, this photo memorialzes downtown’s livelihood and embrace of the holiday spirit this year.
