GOOD Ideas for Cities: How CityPulse Plans to Put St. Louis On the Map

For now, Brain Drain continues to research and cultivate relationships. They've recently decided to incorporate, a step that shows their commitment not just to CityPulse, but to the creative growth of St. Louis. In the meantime, the Brain Drain collective will march forward, even when faced with criticism. "No matter what you do, someone will always be opposed to it, for one reason or another. It may not be many people, but it is often the loudest person," says Brown. "St. Louis is a bit parochial—the same families have been in the government since I've been alive. It can be tough to convince people to do something new, but it's growing pains and it's part of the process." 

"The potential of City Pulse is unlimited," says Pham. "We have no idea what the best use will be, and that's what's truly exciting. Brain Drain would love to see a project like CityPulse become the standard for urban environments, a goal that could very likely be reached, due to the project's scalability. "I had a meeting with some folks connected to New York City's public space recently," says Pellegrino. "Prior to the meeting they had looked at my website and the first thing they asked me about was the CityPulse project."
