Otherwise show us Dallas' OTR or other neighborhoods that can touch Cincy.

Dallas has nothing at all like OTR. But a neighborhood doesn't have to be as urban as OTR to be a great one.

Agreed, but my comment was to make a point to an immature comment. I don't like when these threads get comments like the one I responded to. It's silly, especially when the city on the receiving end of such a juvenile, petty comment is bless with neighborhoods and architecture like Cincy is.

Dallas is way more prestigious than Cincinnati. However. They are similar in the manner than they're both largely suburban outside of the city limits. But even with that, the Dallas city limits are more urban than the Cincinnati city limits.

Dallas looks and feels like a large city. Cincinnati feels like a large collection of towns strung together.

Not really. Cincinnati is more old school classic urban than Dallas.

That can actually be a good thing; it can evoke a more intimate feel. I've even heard NYC described in similar terms (outside of Midtown and Downtown Manhattan).

Just because a city is more "urban" and "historic" doesn't mean it's good. Also just because a city is sprawled out/"suburban" with a million peeps doesn't mean it's good either.

Cincy by a hair. I'm more familiar with Dallas and overall I wasn't impressed. While there is an income tax in Cincy the affordability makes up for it. Also not too many crazy winter storms with lack of preparation, not much severe weather in the spring and summer. No Cowboys being shoved down my throat all year long. And unless I'm mistaken the job market isn't as competitive as Dallas am I right?

Now if you were to ask me Irving, TX or even Houston vs Cincy that'd be a different story even with the problems Irving and Houston have.

Dallas can feel like a collection of towns strung together in some ways, especially the disparate urban areas south of the Trinity River. Oak Cliff feels very separate from Pleasant Grove.

Cincinnati has more of an old-school charm to it, but I have no desire to live in the Ohio River Valley region, or put up with the local quirks of the people in Cincinnati. Dallas isn't my favorite city by any means, but I'd live there way before I'd even consider Cincy. It's a larger city, better economy, and seems to be more open to different people and different ideas (despite the fact that it's in Texas) way more than Cincy does.
