Waldo, about four km south of Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, is the Brookside neighborhood's grittier cousin. Waldo's population consists mainly of first time homebuyers, single professional homeowners, and older long-time residents. The commercial district isn't pretty, but it does include a few gems like the 75th Street Brewery.

Note the abandoned streetcar track. The Country Club streetcar line, which ran in a dedicated right-of-way through south Kansas City, was abandoned in 1957.

A neighborhood festical that was taking place when I was surveying the neighborhood.
