KCUR Wants Your Photos Of Kansas City’s Northland

Julie Denesha
The Christopher Bond Bridge has become an icon of life north of the Missouri River, the subject of KCUR's Tumblr site called Northland Exposure.

We’re learning a lot about the Northland in Kansas City.

But we know you know more.

As KCUR continues its look at the Missouri River as a dividing line in Kansas City — part of our Beyond Our Borders project — we’re posting photos of life north of the river on a new Tumblr site called Northland Exposure.

We want to showcase cool things to do and places to go in the Northland, but we also want to highlight important issues facing the northern half of Kansas City.

That’s where you come in. Whether you’re a lifelong resident of the Northland, a transplant or just cross the river occasionally — we want to get your northbound perspective.

Share your photos and videos with us here. Or email your photos to social@kcur.org. Don’t forget to include your name and why you think we should include the photo in your message.

We’re already receiving a lot of suggestions from listeners and folks on social media on some Northland must-sees. The advice comes as we've been asking, "What's your favorite thing to do north of the Missouri River?"

Tom Bodine on Facebook recommended a stop at English Landing Park in Parkville.


Here’s a menu of Northland dining options we received from callers and KCUR’s food critics.

And KCUR reporter Elle Moxley warns Northland drivers of potential traffic delays this week, as the Broadway Bridge is up for inspection.


For more Northland Exposure — and to share your own perspective — check out our Tumblr at northlandexposure.tumblr.com. Or search for “Northland” and “Kansas City” on Tumblr.

This look at the Missouri River is part of KCUR's months-long examination of how geographic borders affect our daily lives in Kansas City. KCUR will go Beyond Our Borders and spark a community conversation through social outreach and innovative journalism.

We will share the history of these lines, how the borders affect the current Kansas City experience and what’s being done to bridge or dissolve them.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and powerful storytelling.
