We moved to the Westport area (if you’re not familiar with KC, don’t worry about it), and it’s a lot nicer than I ever imagined. Just five blocks due North of the Nelson, our neighborhood is quiet and apparently fairly safe (three weeks now without being victim to a single violent crime!). I can and do walk to work on the Plaza and school at UMKC. I purchased a bike which should be here by the beginning of June. I’ve essentially stopped using my car, a good thing, I think.
