Re: River Market to Cliff Drive Bike Connection

The connector is awesome! It is a little hard to find as It starts in a weird spot, deep in the projects. The trail is really well landscaped and there are artifacts from the city's past everywhere. The ground it littered with pulverized bricks. There were salvaged architectural elements near the tr...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Are they creating a path up the bluffs here too?

Looks like a ramped walkway. Could also just be for construction.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

This is potentially terrible news. For me, that block really embodies everything I value about the Crossroads. Plus, I love all those businesses and artists. Peggy Noland is living/working in LA now so I kind of doubt she will continue to have a presence here...that's sad. KC is really starting to c...

Loving the influx of local stores. So chains I would like to see move in:

-Zara
-Scotch and Soda
-Gant
-Lacoste
-Ralph Lauren (I know they are struggling a bit but it's a classic, quality brand)

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Looks like the old stone wall is remaining in place, but that could change. Hope it stays or is re-built in after.

Re: P&L District 10 years later

'SOLO' area area in 2004 I think, before P&L. Parking lot desert. I wish they would have kept that art deco facade (Soakie's building) https://scontent.fmkc1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/10848922_10100139529229313_8754424350699926061_o.jpg?oh=385d16ec4d8ffa0d049e10ab8e1712a0&oe=5A67C7F8

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Looks really good. I love how they broke the mass up into three smaller bays. The size makes sense for the area. I think NSPJ does some really great work.
