Both exist. The state border is the Missouri River, and Kansas City(Kansas) is a suburb of Kansas City (Missouri) just across theriver.
ZERO miles. There is only one street between the two cities, and it is named "State Line Road."
Joe Reardon is the current mayor of Kansas City, KS.
Kansas City straddles the Kansas & Missouri state border (defined by the Missouri river) hence there is Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.
There are cities with the same name in both Missouri and Kansas, and are just across the Missouri River from each other. Kansas City's metropolitan area has the distinction of… being one of only three American cities (the others are St. Louis and New York) that have area in two states. However, the Kansas city is governed as part of Wyandotte County, Kansas, not as part of the larger city. The Missouri state border is along the meandering Missouri River that flows through Kansas City, and the river separates the less-populated Kansas side from the Missouri side.
Both Kansas and Kansas City are named for Kansas River, which is in turn named for the local Kanza Indian tribe. The city was established before Kansas itself was even made a …territory.
In the United States, a city is a legal entity of a state (or territory or commonwealth, etc.). As such, it is impossible for the legal limits of a city to extend across state… borders. This has led to cities which appear to cross borders, because they have the same name in both states, but which are actually separate cities, such as Kansas City (Missouri and Kansas) and Texarkana (Arkansas and Texas). The pairs share things like media outlets and civil organizations, but have separate governmental systems. "Kansas City" in Missouri was originally settled by the French in the early 1800s, but soon was over run by a large population of Southerners and they called it "Possum Trot." The actually settlement became associated with the "Westport Landing," but in 1850 it was incorporated as the "Town of Kansas." The name was changed in the 1880s and the town was renamed "Kansas City." The name "Kansas" comes from its location at the edge the "Kansa," or Kaw, Indian territory, but mostly for its location at the confluence at the Kansas (Kaw) and Missouri Rivers.
Kansas City is in both states indeed (I live in Kansas). The majority and most of the attractions of Kansas city are on the Missouri side including the home of the nfl's chief…s, and mlb's royals. also home to the downtrown kansas city area. the kansas side is the smaller city with less attractions but still some including the home of the mls's wizards and a greatwolf lodge, schlitterbahn waterpark resort and the kansas speedway. KCK population=142,500 KCMO population=480,000. That should say it all right there. They kansas side is no more than a suburb of the kansas city MISSOURI metro. I live here on the kansas side.
Not as big as Kansas City, MO. But the population is of KCK is 146866. Kansas City, MO is 475830.
Kansas City is in Kansas and Missouri because Kansas City is a rather large city; it is in Kansas but it crosses over the border and the larger part sits in Missouri, so it is… considered a city in both Kansas and Missouri.
I noticed someone answered Douglas County. Douglas County Kansas is where Lawrence Kansas is. Kansas City Kansas is in Wyandotte County Kansas.
The borders of both cities touch
It makes no sense, but there is both! Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO. There is also a place called Kansas, OK (but not Kansas city, just Kansas). Just like Portland. Ther…e is a Portland in Oregon and Maine. Trust me, sometimes cities double, maybe even triple!
