“Nice place to hang out for a day”
Review of Brookside

This area has everything. You can have all three meals there drinks go to a bar and watch a live band or sports. Several good spots to have a drink. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is laid back. If you enjoy the KC River Market you would probably like it out here also, but you may spend a bit more money.

This is a wonderful component of Kansas City, just a delight to visit and browse in the stores. Wonderful restaurants.

Can't beat Brookside. It has a strong business association that keeps the district clean and up to date. Good choices of restaurants. Great area.

Underwhelming. This may be a great neighborhood to live in but is hardly a significant destination for an outsider. The 'highlight' picture in TA sums it up: a normal house with some character. To give this place 5 stars is total ignorance of what else is out there (outside of Kansas City) First, there is nothing notable about the location (i.e. river, lake, ocean, mountains), cars cars cars everywhere making it not feel pedestrian and an eyesore, no notable park or gardens I saw, inconsistent and meager sidewalk landscaping. Might be a nice destination if you're in need of normal.
I know comparable-size cities like Minneapolis and St. Louis have far more interesting neighborhoods than Brookside, but it sounds like the best KC has.
