Preservation, or actually the lack of it, is in the news again with the threatened demolition of Westminster Congregational Church. All of these historic structures have been lost in Northeast in just the last decade. Often aided and abetted by the city government.

Kinda surprising - a couple of those houses look really cool.

Historians need to stop this. If you want to beat the city then put your property on the historic register and it becomes illegal to tear down. Don't let KC become another Atlanta which they call the new south because they tore down all of their history. Just take a look at the KC star building. Do you want that ugliness all over your city? North east is the best part of KC don't let them tear it down. Citations on property owners will stop this from happening and stop them from bleeding historic buildings to death. If you see this happening call 311 report the owners and make them fix it.

12:57 you’re an idiot.

Kc doesn’t tear down anything until it becomes a threat to public safety. Historical morons cry like little babies but until they fork over their own millions of dollars to fix something then they need to shut the hell up.

Been a while since Radish routed thru there. Was surprised (very) to find woodland stops and is vacated around indep ave. I guess this was part of the project that tore down those apartment buildings on brownell street?

I’m betting most of those properties had huge holes in the roofs and floors. I think those apartments were torn down to expand the medical college on the avenue.

Not to worry, new houses are being built on vacant lots and older houses are being restored and remodeled in that neighborhood. It's heading up, not down.

Destroy and attempt to replace history is black dim0crat way. Like termites they destroy the home they live in.
