George and Anna Vetter moved into 645 Brighton in 1914. The home was built in 1910. They were my great grandparents. Below, Lawrence and Flora Remley on the from porch ca 1916. My Father was raised in this home from 1918 on... along with his brother and sister.

I grew up in northeast as soon as they bussed the negroes in that was the defining moment of destruction. Look at the shithole now , it’s a real testimony to what niggers can do to a area with the watchful eye of leftist democrat masters a real shame

Unfortunately, under the restrictions that exist now, these "Shirtwaists" were built too close together, and the lots can't be built on any more.

Shame that Kansas City shits on History in the name of Progress, but that's what the Developers want, so...

Sorry, but the "Historic" Northeast has been a shithole since at least WWII.
