An organization dedicated to saving treasured places has put the Gateway Arch on their endangered world monuments list.  The “World Monument Fund” added the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial to their list of current watch sites over concerns it may be in danger of neglect.  The organization’s website says the Arch could become a victim to current economic trends, an unusual shape and decreased government funding for stewardship.  

Other monuments on the funds list are the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas and the Cloisters and Palisades in New York and New Jersey.
