Far North Riverfront

While the Near North Riverfront gets more attention because it's easier to see from downtown, the Far North Riverfront holds some interesting surprises as well.Above, this very cool building anchors the Bissell Point Waterworks, or Waste Treatment Center, not sure which one. I like its curving lines.Unbeknownst to a lot of people, the City of St. Louis burns much of its trash in two incinerators, such as this one. Talk about a huge, hulking building.Finally, the massive approaches to the Merchants' Bridge rise north of the McKinley Bridge. Perhaps the most difficult bridge to photograph due to its isolation, the Merchants' looks very similar to the McKinley, its southern neighbor.

  1. As far as I know, the incinerators are inactive and only serve as transfer stations.
