While not technically the largest city in Missouri (that honor belongs to Kansas City, due to some creative annexing and stupidity on St. Louis' part), the entire area's a lot bigger and more influential. Home to Budweiser, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Gateway Arch, this city of roughly 2.8 million people also has some good music, good food and weird customs. It's pretty much Boston-on-the-Mississippi: mostly Catholic, very insular, loves baseball a little too much, has an inferiority complex (here it's with Chicago) that we take out through baseball. It's got a lot of bad points, too: we live too much in the past, we've deluded ourselves into thinking we're either still really important or just a "big small town", and we can't support a football team worth a damn. Overall, it's a very Midwestern city: misunderstood and a little weird.
"Where did you go to high school?"--If you can't answer this question with something an average person born in St. Louis can understand, you're fucked. Seriously.

1. A tragically underappreciated urban environment, tragically situated in an ass backwards state, which features beautiful parks, breathtaking architecture, and world class cultural amenities.

2. A city made up of urbanites, gays, and young professionals. A great city to live offering a low cost of living, up and coming public transit, lively night life, and some of the best educational institutions of the midwest.

3. Some Catholic saint, who cares?

1.The 2nd most dangerous city in the US. This is because the crime rates in the counties weren't averaged in,and that's because the city and the county are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
2.The location of the best tap water in the US. WHAT NOW! We also have toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, Ted Drews, and the cardinals.
St louis has good food and nice people and Forest park, therefore it totally OWNS all the other cities.
