Monthly Event Hosted by West 39th Street District
August 26, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
West 39th Street District is from State Line Rd. to Southwest Trafficway. This corridor is home to 92 businesses where 97% of them are small local establishments. Historically, West 39th Street has been called Restaurant Row by legendary broadcaster Walt Bodine, which includes many restaurants, boutiques, record and book stores, niche shops, coffee shops, bakeries, and historic buildings including the Loretto. Most of its development was originally created in 1901-1920’s and was a frequented location of Ernest Hemingway amongst many other historical icons. There are nearby architectural landmarks such as Thomas Hart Benton’s home, houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, and 5 neighborhoods adjacent to the District.
“Since 1963, Country Club Bank has supported thousands of worthy not for profits and their causes, and is pleased to sponsor this August Urban Core Group event in partnership with the West 39th Street Community Improvement District, lead by Executive Director, Amanda McGee. During my many trips to KU Med during my cancer journey last year, I visited a new restaurant on 39th Street every week, and can attest that this emerging mid-town business district has some of the best restaurants and retail establishments in Kansas City. The Urban Core Group event Wednesday evening August 26th is a great reason to return! Please join us!”
Charley Vogt – Past President of the Urban Core Group
