the neighborhood | Crossroads

Also known as The City of Fountains, Kansas City is the most centrally located major metropolitan area, and the home of barbecue, jazz, and inspiring entertainment. First Fridays are a signature downtown event, attracting over 10,000 residents and tourists to enjoy local art, music, and food.
Built in 1929, UNION was formerly a film processing center. Filmmakers came to Kansas City to develop their film as an alternative to the lofty prices in New York and California.
Kansas City lies on the Missouri-Kansas border, which often causes confusion for travelers. State Line Road serves as the dividing line, and is a simple landmark to determine which state you are in. If you are west, you are in Kansas. If you are east, you are in Missouri.
