The very un-PC fact is that there are a LOT of people in the DFW metroplex who have money...and they are ensconced all over the place, including Uptown, HP, Plano, Southlake...EVERYWHERE.

Not everyone you see is a 40,000 millionaire...there are a lot of people around here with a lot of money.

You have a ton of people with no debt paying a total of $3k per month: $2k for their apt. and a $1,000 car payment. The truly wealthy people in HP don't necessarily show it in parking lots.

By the turn of the century Uptown had become old and rundown. Dallas being the #1 boring city that been acclaimed, investors decided to rebuild the area with a culture to satisfy mid to better income professionals.

It worked.

At some point many will find mates, build families and move on to the 'burbs, carrying with them the social experiences of living in the urbana, thus making the 'burbs somewhat cool as well.

It's convenient. If you can swing it, there's not much reason to live anywhere else.

When I was 30 and moved to Dallas from OKC, the area to live in and socialize for the singles was Greenville Avenue (boundaried generally from Walnut Hill on Greenville Avenue going south). I happened to be in town and was around that area a few months ago and I noticed that it doesn't look so "spiffy" as it did back in 1980. What's "the" area nowadays for single heteros to meet and greet?

Yes that's right before "Upper Greenville" and "Lower Greenville" changed places...

Yes. Right around there. In the same bldg/strip - there's Neighborhood Services and J Blacks. Across the street is Horne and Dekker. Then across Henderson is Hacienda. Sushi Axion (also across the street) always seems to have a crowd, but we went once and didn't like the vibe or the food.
