oe Holleman recently did a piece in the St. Louis Post Dispatch about correct and local pronunciation of various streets and places in the city.  He mentioned Kosciuszko (notice the "z" that doesn't exist in the city spelling).  Anyhow, it's a Polish word and the formal pronunciation is kuh-SHOO-sco whereas the locals say kozz-ee-OSS-co.

Lyon Park has a couple baseball/softball fields in the shadow of the brewery and sits right next to the NGIA facility.
