Totally Agree, don't know many Cities more Original than Boston.. The City and the Burbs are historic.

As a former east coast resident. Dallas location is the reason it feels a bit unoriginal.. I can within the 5 miles from around my office in any point see southwestern, Midwestern and east coast architecture and a random Palm Tree for good measure. Dallas is the intersection of at least 3 if not 4 georgraphic areas so it would only make since that all of them would show up here. The climate also works for most styles. that's the big reason houses look differently. from the high slopes of the north east and plains to the tile roofs of the southwest.

Ironically, being located at a crossroads does make it somewhat unique.
