Recent Media Reports about Old North St. Louis

During our break from blogging after 45 consecutive days, we never got around to posting some of the links for recent media reports about ONSL:

KWMU (90.7 FM) report on Mullanphy and Missouri Preservation’s Most Endangered Historic Places in Missouri (May 16);

An in-depth, 12+ minutes video interview on PubDef (May 10) about Mullanphy, as posted on YouTube;

KMOV-TV (Channel 4) report on Mullanphy & Missouri Preservation’s Most Endangered List (May 15);

Click HERE for a commentary posted by a visitor to the house tour on The people behind describe it as “a public photoblog where people with a love for the urban form, modern world, or a general appreciation of their environment gather to post stories, narratives, and photos of their favourite cities, hometowns, travels, or current locations.”

The post about ONSL includes a lot of good photos from the house tour and starts off with the following testimonial:

“Old North St. Louis is one of my favorite neighborhoods in St. Louis (or
anywhere) mainly because of the commitment that its community has to constantly making it a better place. ONSL suffered greatly to abandonment and decay. In the last few decades, people have been coming back to restore its buildings and its community. I went on the Old North St. Louis House and Community Tour on Saturday and got several pictures of the neighborhood.”
