Kansas City, Missouri from Kansas City, Kansas

Super short thread of downtown KCMO from Strawberry Hill in KCK.

Great vantage point, and an angle I'm not sure I've seen before.

Thanks. I don't believe KCMO is seen from this particular angle often.

It's not often you get a glimpse of downtown from that angle!! I did it several years ago when I did a thread of KCK. I need to go back out there sometime and do an update!!

It's truly a unique view.

I'll have to get out there sometime again. It's a city with a lot of history, but very much overshadowed by KCMO and later the Johnson County area in Kansas.
