Kansas City pushes out longtime residents in favor of hipsters. Here's the latest complaint worth a look:

39th Street changes concern residents

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The growing popularity of the 39th Street strip has some longtime neighbors complaining about being priced out of the area. A laundromat that served the neighborhood for years is closing later this month. New restaurants and trendy shops are attracting bigger crowds to 39th Street.

No worries. It will become reasonably priced once again as soon as the urban youth start traveling west to prey on the unsuspecting.

It's a very dangerous area. These skinny jean hipsters aren't prepared for the violence that awaits them.

Brilliant insight @1:48PM. No-doubt gleamed from years of seeing that aforementioned violence firsthand by working in at-risk communities when you're not busy publishing this valuable insight on a blog in the middle of the afternoon. Thank you for your warning to the "skinny jean hipsters" who are in no way prepared. This generous sharing of your hard earned wisdom stands as a testament to your character. A lot of other blog commentators would go for mindless dead-end, cloying, petulant comments. Often trying to be funny or clever, but always falling short. Not you though. I commend you for doing your civic duty.

Trendy shops or not, 39th Street is a shithole because of the criminal dark element and becasue our police department is fucking worthless. Since our police department is a bunch of fucking cunts, 39th Street will always be a shithole.

39th street has its problems but it's nowhere near as bad as you guys are saying. Such a shame that some of the people on this blog are so scared. Get out more and you might enjoy life.

How much time have you spent there? How many people have you seen raped or murdered in the 39th Street corridor. Oh, none right? You've probably never been there.
