Re: New Broadway Bridge

Ask tourists how they feel. I'll give you a hint: NOBODY wants to move to a boring, chlorine clean city with no character. Architecture exists to attract. The failure to use attractive architecture has GENERATIONAL effects. And yet Levittown attracted tons of people... Literally never heard of it.

Re: OFFICIAL: Zona Rosa (tenants & phase II)

I don't think they ever had full occupancy on the northern half of the center. Went through it in maybe May and it was like downtown in 2000, tons of empty space. That's what happens when you build an isolated, suburban shopping district in a field bounded by highway. Zona Rosa was set up for failu...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I like a pretty bridge as much as the next person, but what has the aesthetically pleasing Bond Bridge done to enhance downtown, the riverfront, or North Kansas City that a boring girder bridge wouldn't have also accomplished? To me, landmark bridges are like tall buildings in the skyline. They loo...

Wasn’t she the one who made incredibly callous comments when a bicyclist was killed last year?

Re: Politics

It’s ok to talk about how black men are 3 times more likely to be shot by a cop but don’t mention the fact they commit a disproportionate amount of the crime. The US is about 73% white, 13% black This is FBI data on arrests by race from 2017 https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u....

Re: Black Lives Matter Street Murals

IMO there's a huge difference between driving over a single narrow colorful crosswalk and driving down an entire street with random painted zigzagging colors. The latter sounds like it could actually be a truly hazardous situation.

Re: Black Lives Matter Street Murals

Are these streets being opened back up after the paint dries? 10th & Baltimore is back open to traffic now. Is the painting confusing or otherwise a hindrance to traffic? I haven't seen them in person yet but I feel like that's actually a legit concern to have on an active street. Doesn't all stree...

Re: Cosentino's Grocery downtown

Just curious what ya'lls stance on slavery in Africa is. It's still very commonly practiced in Niger and the rest of the Sahara desert region. People literally walking around in chains and being sold as servants. I'm guessing nobody even realizes that slavery (Actual, legitimate slavery.. not just h...

Re: Cosentino's Grocery downtown

It sucks that as a private business you can’t do anything when a large group of protestors take over. It’s also ironic they’re protesting federal agents being in town to help solve murders but won’t protest against black on black crime. Agreed. The hypocrisy is real. People are also terrified becau...

Genuinely surprised how fast the Parks Department started switching out the JC Nichols Blvd signs, especially given the fact that there are still MLK Blvd signs up on some places on the Paseo. Why does that surprise you? Politics are politics. Clearly they want to remove the JC Nichols Blvd signs, ...
