It's ususually the East side of town.

Pollution makes it the least the least desirable area.

I went to college in North Carolina, and I still remember that from Sociology 101.

When my professor learned I was from KC, he through out the fact that the crime rate tripled when you crossed Troost. I told him my dad worked on Troost . . .

The west side of town is by the Mississippi River. The farther away you get the better things are.

All I know is the last time we went there I pulled over to go inside a grocery store to pick up a couple things. Everyone was staring at us when I noticed we were the only non-black people in there. Kinda funny actually. Is KC that ethnically divided?

South Los Angeles is the worst part of town. It has everything you look for in a slum poverty, drugs, gangs, corruption, and pollution. If it wasn't for USC nobody would ever go there. Home sweet Home

I always find it funny when people look at you like your nuts for walking into an area like that. Then again I have never had something really bad happen. I think a lot of it revolves around the way you carry yourself, confident without being arrogant. I lived in an almost all black neighborhood when I was 18 for a couple years. Me and two freinds rented a big ass 4 bedroom house there. One of them used to always get messed with while me and the other guy never had problems. I remember he came home one time and asked why they threw rocks at his car when he drove down the street. ROFL

I don't think I would have any trouble. I am nice outside of the internet ;) and generally never have problems with people.

I remember a friend of mine and I were riding our motorcycles once going through KCK, and everyone was looking at us. I guess we stuck out as outsiders. Nobody messed with us though... just staring.

Same deal, once on a Saturday afternoon in the summer we rode through Swope park and there were tons of people there, in the hundreds in any particular area, with some house parties going on nearby. We were the only two white guys for miles it felt like. Everybody noticed us, but I've never had rocks thrown at me or anything.

He got rocks thrown at him because he went through life with a gigantic V for victim on his chest. He asked me what to do about it I said "you're in the car, run over them" He looked at me like I was nuts. He just wouldn't stick up for himself, they were all over that shit. They knew me and the other roomate would so they we got along with everyone. They tested us, we passed, end of story. they tested him, he failed miserably and he moved out early because he couldn't deal with the stress they were putting him through. The one time he tried to stick up for himself he used the N word (being PC for the planet) and we almost had a riot on our hands. I got tired of cleaning up his shit, I was glad when he moved out.

Liquor Stores are open in JoCo on Sundays. There are a handful of counties that thumbed their noses at Topeka saying they had no jurisdiction according to the laws.

Oak Cliff in Dallas. Well south Dallas in general is pretty much a shithole. KCK is pretty much the armpit of Kansas City. I grew up in Overland Park the first 20 years of my life and I can only recall needing to go up to KCK about 5 to 7 times. It's pretty much filled with white trash and other assorted dirtbags.

We had an open house and sales meeting up in KC one time.
I decided to get a haircut and just drove 'til I found a barbershop. Turned out, the woman had never cut a white mans hair before.
What do you do when she is just getting started and you realize this?
Get up and make a scene, cause trouble?
I walked out of there butchered, the laughing stock.

I knew there were a few counties that weren't dry on Sunday. I haven't lived on the East side of the state since all the changes have been made.

If the midwest is the bible belt then the buckle falls on McPherson county. I will be 100 years old before I see a liquor store open here on Sunday. :mad:

Milwaukee is considered to be the most segregated city in the country (so I've heard). You don't want to be in the northern part of the city after dark. Heck, for that matter, you don't want to be there at any time during the day.

Here in Reno County, I believe most of the liquor stores refused to be open on Sunday. I know one person who owns a liquor store and he essentially said he would close down before being open on Sunday's.

Not that it happens very often, but man it sucks being in the middle of the state on a Sunday with no beer.

A owner in Crawford county said the same thing when they tried to get Sunday sales. My thought was if you don't want to open your store then don't. There are many places of business that aren't open on Sunday. Just because the law says it's okay to be open doesn't force a store owner to open it.

I could go for a beer right now. :)

My neighborhood in Independence was just designated as a "blighted area" by the city. They passed a "Plan 353" ordinance which will allow for tax abatement on any property improvement. So if I put in a new AC/Heating, new driveway, siding, landscaping, etc. it's 100% tax abatement for the first 10 years, and 50% for the following 15 years. Sweeeet.

Sometimes its good to live in a "slum."

My particular part of the "blighted area" is actually in decent condition.

It seems to me like everything south of the river east of 435 has really gone downhill.

I'm only in my 20s and I can really tell the difference from even 5 or 10 years ago when I first started driving. A lot of times on the backroad way to Arrowhead you drive through neighborhoods that look like every single house should be meeting the wrecking ball.

The seedy parts are in the rural areas where all the farms crops are.

i live 7miles from a small town on 40acres surrounded by woods.

what does make it seedy are the a$$holes that toss their beer cans out the windows of their trucks in the ditches.
