"The nation’s tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors for more than 40 years with its iconic, awe-inspiring shape. The vision of renowned architect Eero Saarinen, the Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and St. Louis’ role in the westward expansion of the United States. A visit to St. Louis isn’t complete without standing at its base and playing professional photographer, and the view from the outside is only half of the experience.


The attraction within the Arch is the Journey to the Top, Yes I did go to the top. The arch is the Gateway to the West.

In front of the arch is the old Capitol Building.dome. the building is undergoing restoration

Awesome Capture of the Arch in St. Louis. I see the picture you have a little of the city.
I have stayed at the Adam Park Hotel across the street form the Arch.

I used to live within sight of it; photographed it but never went to the top. I was across the river and downstream.
