~Kansas City Missouri~

Kansas City Skyline at Night

Kansas City is a city covering parts of Jackson, Clay, Cass, and Platte counties in Missouri, USA
Although it is the largest city in Jackson County, the suburb of Independence is the County Seat
Situated at the junction of the Missouri and Kansas rivers
It lies along the boundary between Missouri and Kansas and directly opposite is Kansas City, Kansas

Often abbreviated KCMO, Kansas City is the largest city in Missouri and 27th in the United States
The entire metropolitan area (in both states) is approximately 2 million

Although my town, Parkville is a separate city with it's own government and police
It is actually contained in the geographical area of the 318 square miles of Greater Metro Kansas City
And located just Northwest of Downtown Kansas City, Missouri

Bartle Exibition Hall at night...

The weird things on top of the struts caused quite a Civic comment, called them a toaster and hair curlers and space ships

Interstate 70 goes underneath the building

City Hall, in downtown Kansas City, was completed in 1937
When it was first built, it was the tallest building in the state. It remains one of the tallest city halls in the country, housing about 1,500 city government employees.

Of the hundreds of Statues in Kansas City, the most Photographed might be "The Scout"

Also in Penn Valley Park, the "Pioneer Mother", another Popular Landmark
