Architecture Students and Cyclists Gather in Old North

While we’ve been recovering from the house tour and working on grant proposals for the Old North Grocery Co-op (watch for more news about that soon), a lot of other things have been going on throughout the neighborhood.

On May 14th we played host to an exhibition of graduate thesis projects by students from the Washington University School of Architecture.  Coordinated by Andrew Faulkner, the event was held at the North Market Apartments community space and provided an opportunity for the students to share their projects and get feedback from the community.

On May 19, Old North welcomed cyclists from throughout the region for the first of the summer series of “Tuesdays with a Twist” bike rides.   Co-sponsored by Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, the Confluence Greenway, Trailnet, Grace Hill, and the St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation, the monthly seven-mile rides start and end in Old North and offer riders a chance to enjoy the views from the McKinley Bridge and Branch Street Trestle.
