St. Petersburg, Florida – the city of sun and oranges
Sunny beaches all year round, palm trees, yachts, a sea of flowers, yellow excursion trams – this is how the city of St. Petersburg looks like a popular holiday destination for people with affluence.
Only it is located on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico, not the Gulf of Finland, in the US state of Florida. And although there are dozens of St. Petersburg, as well as Rome and Paris, in America, this “Saint-Pete“, as the locals call it, is special. At least because there is simply no such number of coincidences with the namesake city.
The city should be!
And coincidences are amazing. The American St. Petersburg was founded in August 1888, by Peter, too, and also by Alekseevich – Peter Alekseevich Dementiev, a Russian nobleman, entrepreneur, and later a writer who emigrated to America in 1881. According to legend, Peter Dementiev, who became Peter Demens in America, and his companion John Williams tossed a coin for the right to name a new city.
The more fortunate Demens then named a small village in honor of the capital of the Russian Empire, where he had lived before. This legend, which, according to Dementiev’s biographer Albert Perry, is nothing more than a “red word” (the agreement was concluded in a purely business way), is loved by its residents and is passed from mouth to mouth.
“Of course, we know why the city is called that. Take our menu, it says on the back that a Russian emigrant named it after he won a dispute with an American, and he named this hotel after his hometown,” says Natasha, a waitress at The Garden restaurant, located in the former Detroit Hotel, the very first hotel in the city.
Jason, the bartender at the Starbucks cafe, says he learned about Dementia at school. “I’ve been living here since I was born, and I think we were told at school about a Russian aristocrat who laid a railway and named our city after a city in Russia.”
His employee Amanda, laughing, admits that she knows about Russian St. Petersburg and just guessed where the name of the city came from: “I do not know this story, I went to school in Tampa.”
Another coincidence is geographical. “Saint-Pete”, like its Russian twin (by the way, quite official) appeared on a wasteland with a population of 30 people. And, like St. Petersburg, it is on the shore of the bay, thanks to which it quickly became a port center and a mecca of water tourism. It’s as if this Peter Alekseevich, a man, according to Albert Perry, of incredible energy and intelligence, who visited Russia as an officer of the imperial army and the leader of the nobility, was looking for the perfect place to build the city of his dreams. He has just chosen somewhat more humane ways to realize this dream.
The Road to Life
According to the archival records and articles of Demens himself, which he published in the journal “Bulletin of Europe” under the pseudonym V.A. Tverskaya, the city arose from almost nothing. First, Dementiev laid the first railroad in Florida and named it “Orange Ridge”. Then he built a depot, a pier, and the aforementioned Detroit Hotel, and also set a plan for the entire settlement.
“It’s amazing how well the original layout of the city has been preserved – streets, parks and reservoirs are now where they were from the very beginning, I can easily tell what all these streets are called now,” says Amelia Preston, an employee of the city hall, looking through a magnifying glass at the first map of the city from 1888. In addition to a couple of inscriptions in small italics on the map, there are only squares and lines…
But Howard Isaac, a local entrepreneur, believes that the look of Saint-Pete has changed, but not for the better. “I’ve been here since 1951 and I see the difference – the city used to be simpler and more beautiful, and there were fewer people.”
The Detroit Hotel, similar to the cottages of Russian aristocrats of the late XIX century, has been completely preserved from the Demens heritage. Today it is one of the most fashionable establishments in St. Petersburg, with its bakery, restaurant, bar, DJs, and lives music in the evenings.
Russian Russian musicians I don’t remember playing here, but there was a Bulgarian DJ, he played something in the style of hip-hop with obvious Russian motifs.” Russ, an employee of the restaurant, recalls: “I don’t remember that Russian musicians played here, but there was one Bulgarian DJ, he played something in the style of hip-hop with obvious Russian motives.”..
Most of the “Orange Ridge” is cemented under bicycle paths. There is an office building with restaurants on the site of the depot. But the pier has become a real asset of the city – it houses a yacht club, a respectable Renaissance Park Voit hotel, a lot of restaurants and recreation areas. In addition, a park called Demens Landing is divided into parts of the pier. Under one of the trees of the park near the water, the Congress of Russian Americans installed in 1979 a memorial pedestal in memory of Dementiev-Demens, the founder of the city of St. Petersburg.
