Cool neighborhoods in KC area?

by suzer Online Now May 22, 2004 at 4:45 PM

My sister is moving to the Kansas City area for a job. Can someone suggest cool neighborhoods for a young single professional (KS or MO)? She wants to buy a small house, preferrably something older (20's to 40's build). Zip codes would be helpful, as she's been looking online. Thanks!

    I would suggest checking what are known as the Valentine and Brookside areas in mid-town Kansas City, MO; or the close-in suburb of Westwood, Kansas. These places really have a lot of charming older homes and neighborhoods with a lot of character. If the house option doesn't work out, she might want to consider a loft (or the occasional town house) in the Quality Hill, Garment District, River Market, or Crown Center & Union Hill areas. Lots of young professionals living in these parts of town. I know she will find great places to live, work, and play in KC. It's a great town.
