I recently found a thread with an awesome group of photos a member took of a helicopter ride around downtown KC and the Westin Crown Center and Country Club Plaza areas on June 19th. If you've never seen a pic of KC and come from somewhere like California, you'll love all the towers and such. Just try to remember that it sure isn't NYC...
If I get the time and the bug to go through it I might link some of them and point out some of the awesome buildings around here, like the P&L, Fidelity Bank Tower, Union Station, One KC Place, Town Center, Bartle Hall, City Hall, the Court House (semi-circular!), the new H&R Block building (looks like a Bic lighter), the new (almost done) Sprint Center right by it (round like a shiny ashtray), the very funky KC Star building across the highway from that... I know ax0n works in a downtown tower, but I don't know which. And as a note to my self and others, there is a Wikipedia page for KC architecture.
I actually live just a ways east, across the Blue River in Independence, but the Greater KCMO area is "home."
