1321 Union - Worldwide Photo Walk

Kansas City had two events for Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk. I chose to go to the early morning event. The location was in West Bottoms area. The original townsite for Kansas City sets on a bluff above a number of streams, including the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. The original city was surrounded with floodplain valleys to the west, north and east. They are all known as the Bottoms.

The West Bottoms is an old industrial district. It was the home of the former KC Stockyards. It is bordered by the Missouri and Kansas, and Turkey Creek. It is an area of old brick factories and warehouses. There is plenty of dirt, graffiti, and general grunge. This image is one that shows one of many examples of deferred maintenance.
