The Western Auto building is an iconic Kansas City landmark, much in the same way the Flatiron building is in New York City. Originally built for the Coca-Cola Company, it is on the National Register of Historical Places. Click on the image for a larger view.

First Friday, Kansas City

Kansas City celebrates the first Friday of every month by holding an art festival in its Crossroads district. Galleries are open to the public. Performers and musicians are on the streets. And three blocks are closed for rows of food trucks. Kansas City barbecue, the local delicacy, is represented heavily on the menu. Click on the image for a larger view.
