The Gateway Arch in St. Louis

The Gateway Arch was completed in 1965 and opened to the public in 1967. I saw it in the summer of 1967. The arch was designed by architect Eero Saarinen and intended to be a monument to westward expansion. It’s really beautiful and would be a lot more well known if you could see someplace more famous such as New York instead of St. Louis.
