St. Louis sits just south of the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, which helped it grow into a huge city and made it a big deal back when riverboats were considered a speedy form of transportation, but the city has been gradually declining in importance (and population) for quite a while now. It's lost population in every census since 1950 and is no longer even the largest city in Missouri, though some of those people just moved to the suburbs and the metropolitan area still has a larger population than UsefulNotes/KansasCity's. The suburbs across the river in Illinois go by the description "Metro East" for obvious reasons.
