    "On the other hand, many of the surrounding cities in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area reflect the opposite in crime statistics.
    Much of the city's murders and violent crimes occur in the city's inner core. The violent crime rates in the core consistently have driven the city and metropolitan area down on "livability" indices, hindering initiatives in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s to revive downtown Kansas City. In the 2000s, however, attempts at revitalizing the downtown area have been more successful. The downtown neighborhood currently has one of the lowest crime rates in the urban core, prompting revitalization of the area, including new lofts, a new entertainment district and a new arena. According to an analysis by The Kansas City Star and the University of Missouri at Kansas City , downtown has experienced the largest drop in crime of any neighborhood in the city during the current decade"

    March 2007, Money Magazine rated Overland Park, Kansas, 6th best city to live in the United States .
