I lived in Kansas City, Missouri north of the river for about ten years. It's a great place but there are issues with both increasing crime, and police misconduct. Somebody broke into my car as soon as my wife and I moved here. This was at a nice apartment complex. In addition, two police officers showed up at my apartment in 2007 screaming and yelling in the middle of the afternoon. I was working in my home office. When I opened the door they just marched on in without a warrant, assaulted me and pushed me around. Based on what they said, an estranged relative of mine paid them to go to my apartment to harass and/or harm me. Of course they could have lied. No I'm not some big bad criminal who needs to be harassed. Fortunately I wasn't seriously injured, although the incident did occur just weeks after I had major surgery. It could have turned out much worse. I did report it to (other) authorities. As far as I know, the officers were never held accountable in any way. Every lawyer I contacted refused to help me; some even suggested the incident was my fault. Don't count on being able to get a lawyer in the US for anything. Many will simply refuse to work for you. They won't care if you've got money or not. Some are just lazy. My father was a lawyer/judge, and a really bad person. He was violent, abusive, and abandoned me when I was a kid. A judge.Kansas City is more affordable than most large cities in the US. There's plenty of entertainment: all kinds of great restaurants, music, and pro sports. And first-class healthcare. Most people in this part of the country are pleasant, non-confrontational, and they mind their own business. Too cold in the winter though. Better have a vehicle good in ice and snow during the winter months.

Up and coming neighborhoods I know of established/revitalized neighborhoods like Brookside, Westport, Waldo, Union Hill, and 39th St., but where do you see the next Kansas City neighborhood revitalization happening?

Who has the best BBQ in Kansas City, MO? I'm looking for the absolute best BBQ in Kansas City, MO. I know it's not an easy question to answer, and is subjective but let me see if I can help.
