We’re finding lots of cool things on and east of Troost Avenue in Kansas City. And we know you are, too.

As KCUR continues its look at Troost as a dividing line in Kansas City — part of our Beyond Our Borders project  — we’re posting photos of our cool finds on a new Tumblr site called Awesome Things East of Troost.

We want to highlight the amazing things and places we encounter in this project on the site. But we’re also curious about what awesome things you’re finding on and east of Troost.

Share your photos and videos with us here.  

Or email your photos to social@kcur.org.

For example, we loved how this mural at a bus stop near 31st Street and Troost shows off the area’s heritage. Troost Mural

We marveled at the real estate in this neighborhood east of Troost. Squier Park

And we get really hungry every time we look at this photo of breakfast at this culinary staple on Troost. Niecies Restaurant

For more awesome things on and east of Troost — and to share your own — check out our Tumblr at awesomethingseastoftroost.tumblr.com. Or search for “awesome Troost” on Tumblr.

This look at the Troost corridor is part of KCUR's months-long examination of how geographic borders affect our daily lives in Kansas City. KCUR will go Beyond Our Borders and spark a community conversation through social outreach and innovative journalism.

We will share the history of these lines, how the borders affect the current Kansas City experience and what’s being done to bridge or dissolve them. Be a source for Beyond Our Borders: Share your perspectives and experiences east of Troost with KCUR
