An introduction to the caves of St. Louis
thanks, i really liked the cave info. Great job.
I didn't realize urban caves were another thing StL and KC had in common. Including actual caves and mined-out spaces, a crazy 10 percent of the KC metro's industrial space is underground. One facility, Subtropolis, is supposedly big enough to hold 42 Arrowhead stadiums. But I prefer the St. Louis concept of building breweries over the caves better than what KC has done—almost all the underground spaces here are just warehouses and offices. 🍻
I love underground history! There's so much of it in London, but I never imagined that St. Louis was built on "swiss cheese" (and it's going to be hard to forget that phrase....) Also, what's this about Brits impersonating a local company and buying up all the beer??
There's the basis for a Lovecraft pastiche in here somewhere....
