Looking Over Kansas City Northland Suburbia



Take a nice look at suburban life expanding into the Kansas City northern frontier as this town moves across the river and away from so much urban core violence.

Now, there's a theory that higher gas prices will soon turn these suburban enclaves into wastelands but we're wondering if that takes into account Internets communication and telecommuting.

Take a look and some nice shots from above a booming subdivision . . .

In the distance we're pretty sure that's downtown that doesn't exactly look bustling but more like a faraway reminder of how/where people once did business.

More in a bit . . .

Is there electricity and running water north of the river?

It's spotty in the urban core so why should north be any different?

The only bright spot in KC, the Northland. Know the Negro will try and fuck that up too. Just a matter of time. There is a enclave now building on Greenhills, north of 152. They are much like a dark colored termite. Wherever they show up, blight and destruction follow.

Enjoy the future today a Park Hill, Northlanders beware, where one comes, the troupe will follow. Ask those folks down in Olathe.

Looks a lot like Johnson County, Liberty, or Lee's Summit.
I thought KCMO was all about density, urban futurists, the creative class, hipsters, and mass transit.
Isn't the money spent north of the river on new roads, water and sewer services, and cul de sacs sucking the life out of the downtown renaissance?
Or are residents north of the river the ones actually paying for all that crap?

The Northland is a "hipster" free area. We hunt them like deer. Beware Lorde lickers.

No. The northland sucks. Living south of the river is so much better. The northland is a bad place to move, bad place to raise a family. Readers of this blog, don't move to the north of the city. Its awful.

I agree 7:35 Northland is terrible. The area around the new Cerner complex is the place to be.

The suburbs are dying. They can not be sustained.

I am a retired KCMO city employee and after retiring I moved into Gladstone Mo. After 15 years in Gladstone I moved back into Kansas City, Mo. Biggest mistake I ever made. Too old now to move out.

Somehow hipsters miss the point that people will not have to commute long distances when almost every business moves out of south KC and into the Northland. That is, the ones who haven't already moved to JoCo.
When I was a little girl growing up in the backwoods of JoCo, everybody's Daddy worked in KCMO. Some worked at Westinghouse at the Bannister complex. Some worked at Sheffield Steel (it was Armco later). Nobody's daddy worked in JoCo. It was just a little bedroom community that was totally dependent on KCMO for its survival. GUESS WHAT YOU IDIOTS! Now most residents actually work where they live. There are as many people community from KCMO to JoCo to work as the other way around. Nothing remains the same, and people who think that somehow downtown KCMO is going to be a viable place to commute are just fooling themselves. Just make sure that they don't fool you.
