That's a nice building including some gothic elements in its architecture which makes the upper part of the building
have a cathedral-like look.
Oh, I can feel that the warm colour of the brick work could especially be very eye pleasing when illuminated either by the morning sun or the evening sun. And you've framed the picture with branches, which also adds at least a slight sense of privacy inclined to sanctity, such a building would require. See also the almost pentagon star out of these branches on the left top corner..
Btw, I think the YMCA stands for Young Men's Christian Association. Maybe you have been there, did you?
I applied a simple cropping to eliminate some extra stuff, hope you don't mind.:-)

Yes, it's "Young Men's Christian Association", although the religious aspect of it is notovertly obvious in theor programs. They usually provide athletic facilities, a place to stay at a reasonable price,youth sports and cultural programs.

It was on a rather narrow residential street; the branches were nice, but unavoidable. And yes, I like your crop better than mine.

That is an interesting building. Was it a church or Masonic Hall (or something like that) before the YMCA took over, or has it always been the YMCA?

Apparently, it's always been a YMCA. Kansas Citians seem to have really admired romanesque architecture. Even old warehouses have lots of molded decoration and architectural details.
