Seems like I've seen this mapped somewhere. Maybe on UrbanAngle?

Nice to see KC's courthouse mentioned, but calling it an icon of the city is hyperbole, icon is an overused and incorrectly used word.

It drives me crazy how overused the word "icon" is. The same goes for "legend."

I would be hard-pressed to think of any building in Kansas City that is iconic in the true sense -- other than maybe to the local people.
