    I am surprised that there are members here that know KC this well. When I joined I think Mainy and I were the only ones who lived here.

    Be careful of online resources though.

    move to the crossroads (basically downtown), lots of new lofts, and art and such... You sound too young for brookside or the plaza, Maybe westport too, but it getting kinda beat up these days. And if you want a huge loft for almost nothing, in a really cool part of town that won't have much in it for the next 5 years or so, try the west bottoms. River market isn't bad either.

    De Lofts look pretty cool. Maybe Quality Hill (looks kinda sketch but i like the area) or Nine Ten Penn.

    Havent been able to fiind too much about West Bottoms lofts and apt online. HAs a good website for the area but not specifically housing in that area.

    Nvm Nine Ten Penn looks pretty shitty

    It could be done.

    That place is nice. But it's two blocks away from P&L. I hate P&L

    Nice photos. But I think they make Kansas City look a lot nicer than what it really is.

    Yes. There's alot of familiar names connected to the art school. Walt Disney, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Morris, Jim Dine, Elaine de Kooning, Thomas Hart Benton, etc. The two museums next door are great.

    Nice photos. But I think they make Kansas City look a lot nicer than what it really is.

    It's still a fairly quiet city, but it's up and coming and it has one really major advantage for long term success: Because the downtown area was practically abandoned and neglected for development from 1960-2000, the city has very few pieces of concrete corporate brutalist architecture, which makes it much more attractive for renovation, street beautification, and urban renewal. It will take 20 more years, but it will happen if the KCMO local government can find some degree of competency.

    I chatted with Mark Funkhouser a few times since he and I frequent the same local coffee house. I think the city management has the right idea, but there is too much in fighting to get things moving at a fast pace. The downtown has really changed ever since I moved here, which really impresses me. I think if this city had a few more major corporations besides hallmark, garmin, and sprint, more people would be attracted here.

    I hate this city, but at the same time I am getting too used to it to move anywhere else. [​IMG]. Also not enough Azns.
