Houston's art scene is more established than Dallas'.

No sir Dallas looks up too Houston not Fort Worth...Please don't disrespect our world class Cultural district...

I like the arts offered in FW, but Houston has it beat. I would hope FW would admire what Houston has going on.

Fort Worth has the second best art scene in the state, even though it is a distant second. The Cultural and West 7th districts are nice and have tons of potential.

Houston 2010 Downtown population according to the Census- 14342
Areas Around DT Population (Midtown, near Town etc- tracts in a 2 mile radius)- 89922

DTH Plus these areas total-104,262 people

can someone do the same for Dallas? the blocks are too small. too many to count.

Here is Austin
DT- 7851
Nearby (2 miles around)- 68204
Total- 75875

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv...n/census/2010/

For SA being generous the DT has 2000 people. near by has another 35K. Check the map

However, DT Houston have more venues. I think people forget that we have the Toyata Center and Minute Maid Park that can bring tens of thousands of people into downtown for a game or concert. Or the fact that we have the Verizon Center that can bring in thousands for concerts and events.
I agree. Ive been to Bayou Place and the Theater District a few time and they were filled with people.

just agree, everything in Houston is far more superior than anything Fort Worth or Dallas has ever delivered or will ever deliver. Just smile and nod your head.
