Tour the one and only Hyde Park!

Nope, not London....or Chicago.....or LA.....

Welcome to the Hyde Park neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri

The Hyde Park neighborhood is in Midtown Kansas City about 3 miles south of Downtown. It consists mostly of turn of the century structures.

Map of Hyde Park - with Central Hyde Park in grey:


This thread includes the traditional Hyde Park and not the nearby "Old Hyde Park" area, which is generally not considered part of "The Hyde Park" (I believe Old Hyde Park was traditionally known as Hanover Place - but was renamed during WWII due to the German affiliation)

Hyde Park is split into three sections: Central, North, and South.

We'll start with Central, which is most affluent section of Hyde Park, consisting of large single family homes on well manicured streets.

It's Kansas City, so you need to have a fountain:

South Hyde Park

South Hyde Park has a blend of apartment buildings, bungalows, and Kansas City Shirtwaist homes, which are more densely packed than the stately lawns of Central.

Our first glimpse of the ubiquitous Kansas City Colonnade Six-Plex:

Armour Boulevard

Armour is one the main thoroughfares through Hyde Park and divides Central from North HP. It is mostly larger, 1920s era hotel/apartments
