Park Your Memories Here

Last weekend’s Westport Art Fair offered little that wasn’t available at similar events in Brookside and Prairie Village earlier this year.

Yet I did witness one thing for the first time. The small parking lot between McCoy’s and the Hurricane was completely vacant. I’d never seen it when it wasn’t packed with cars. It was oddly shocking to discover that it’s just a another grimy little lot.

It’s been the site of countless life-altering moments for generations of Kansas Citians. Romances have begun, ended and even been consummated here. More than a few illegal transactions have transpired on these grounds. And how many people have made the tragic decision not to hail a cab while teetering in this lot?

I think I'll continue to park down the street.
