Abandoned Kansas City: Vacant Beauty
By Regina Daniel
Kansas City is an ever-growing metropolis. Every day the city's expansion reaches out just a little bit farther. Along with this expansion comes more infrastructure and the need for space. Sometimes the structures that sit upon the coveted land can be utilized in the plans, while other buildings stand in the way.
In this next installment of Abandoned Kansas City, even more forgotten and vacant places tell their stories of the past, their decline into abandonment, and their present-day outcomes. Each of these places have historical significance, whether they are documented in the city's foundation or survive in the memories of those who remember them. Now they all share the same emptiness and neglect after their purpose has been served.
