Kansas City's West Bottoms Neighborhood

I was off on Friday, so I hoofed on down to the West Bottoms to get some pictures of this very promising, but undenyably derelict area. My first impression was that it is not a walkable place at all. For how empty it is, there is a very high amount of auto traffic through the area, largely by semi trucks and delivery vans. I got the distinct impression, after I had wandered around for a while, that the west Bottoms, when the sun goes down, are probably the roughest area in the city. Anyway, on with the photographs.

On the way back, Carl caught this girl jumping the turnstyle at the train station. I think she forgot about it within about five minutes.
