KCUR's Laura Ziegler and photographer Claus Wawrzinek hit the streets recently to check out the overnight activity.
They stopped a few places along Independence Avenue ; a 7-11 , an overnight taqueria, and a quiet corner where a lone guitar player was soliciting donations.
They hit Westport and the Crossroads, and found late night street life in K.C. looks different across town.
Audio includes an extra track from conversations with homeless men who congregate at the 7-11 at Prospect and Independence Avenue every night, all night.
