Positive side to St. Louis: Great attractions and historic landmarks

St. Louis has gotten a bad rap due to violent crime.  That is because of teenagers don't want to go to school but they prefer doing stupid things.  But the city has a positive side.  The City Museum is mainly a children's museum, but it has many cool things in there that has some samples of what the city used to have. One of them is the 3/18 Wurlitzer theatre organ which is hooked up to a timer which allows it's computer to play a song on the hour.  I put several Christmas carols into the onboard computer.  MetroLink has sadly ended up in the news because of some teenages acting like little children on the train.  During the AM rush, on the Blue line, you very seldom see any trouble due to that 90% of the people during the early morning hours are going to work.  Metro does operate a para-transit service called-Call-a-Ride and the application for visitors can be emailing adaservices@metrostlouis.org.  Kirkwood has it's own attraction.  The Magic House for kids, the historic Amtrak Station, and the Kirkwood Medical building located at 325 N. Kirkwood Road.  That building has a vintage elevator that stil contains a gate rather than an inner door.  It is a piston pump elevator.  Taking a trip to that building is like visiting an era when healthcare wasn't expensive as it is today.  The building opened in 1958.  West of Kirkwood is the National Museum of Transportation which has artifacts of different types of transportation that once ran when we seniors were young.  Such as the streetcars.

Seniors are just antique people rich with history.
