Vibrant Streetscapes at Grand and Gravois

The intersection of Grand and Gravois can be a bit intimidating, but looking closer, it's a teaming, vibrant mass of humanity of people from all over the world. What do the people from other countries, now making their home in the neighborhoods around South Grand, think of their built environment?
The Afghan market is a great example of an entrepreneur rebuilding after his other shop burned last year. He's back, and still in the neighborhood.
I love this terracotta element shop on Gravois; centuries after brick was first made in St. Louis, the red clay is still influencing the appearance of this city.
