Face it. DFW is fake and wannabe compared to Greater Houston. It's ok and nothing personal.
At least visitors will SEE our fake bridge....Where is Hartmann bridge again?!?.......Is it that industrial bridge that does not look better than the Hunt bridge??....thought so....what magzine cover has it graced???.....none!

Because each city in the metro and the metro itself always sems to be positioning itself for this ideal of being accepted as world class but the results just seem contrived. I lived in DFW for 15 percent of my life and know the area that apparently is the target of the waterless bridge. Good luck. You'll need more than a starchitect bridge. But in true fasion at least it's well lit and shiny. Fake.

Well it's been discussed in the media for several years. It's still better looking than the knock off over the flood plain!

yes hun. You say dumb things (especially when it comes to Houston). But I know you are really bright and just ignorant in this one area. You will learn eventually.


Like I said, I see you working here in Houston in ten years


Kdogg is wrong for that one. You are just green around the edges. You need more world experience, but you are a quite advanced otherwise for your age

I really do. That's why I'm on City Data. I need to know more, I don't want to be ignorant to certain things.

If I had to move, I would move to Houston.

I'm with you. How can an entire metro area be "fake and wannabe"?

Sounds bitter to me.

Moving along... Because Houston doesn't mandate planning or zoning, it's not surprising that some pro-Houston posters don't understand the concept of development focussed on the area as a whole. The MHH Bridge is just one cog within an entire masterplan.

Trinity Groves in West Dallas is being inspired by the new bridge.

Quote:
Trinity Groves, the first major West Dallas development tied to the opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, is expected to bring at least 15 new restaurant concepts and retailers to an area bereft of major attractions, the project’s backers said Tuesday.

In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, restaurateur Phil Romano and his business partner Stuart Fitts outlined plans for a “restaurant incubator,” where seasoned chefs and newbies can try out an idea. The area along Singleton Boulevard between Amonette and Herbert Street also will be home to a cooking school, art galleries, artisan cheese makers, a butcher shop and other attractions.

Dallas could probably even build a cruise terminal to nowhere and make it work.

I new you were genius material

lol, anyway, you need to get world experience first hand.
You can't get it off the internet. It is 95% opinion 5% semi facts.

A great deal of people visit Italy and Love it, I thought it bla.
Many people visit island and think its bla, I thought it was totally awesome.

Make sure you involve yourself with a good research college and get involved in activities that involve travel. Say what you want about UH but I got to visit over 50 cities on their dime.

The first time I went to Dallas was on a school conference. They paid for trips to Phoenix, Santa Fe, Taos, Seattle, DC, NY, ATL, Chicago, SF, Juneau, NOLA, Miami, among other places. Some of these I had been to before or went back since, but it is a good opportunity to see places. My trips to Europe have been school related too. Although, I visited other countries on my stay with my own money, the school paid for my trip to London, my Trip to Paris, and for my research presentation in Sweden.

I need to explore Eastern Europe more. Want to spend a good deal of time in Russia, Poland, Austria and Hungary.

I still remember my first trip to Dallas. We had driven and got there at night. The lights at night were quite nicet.

... even I think that's a little too much.

I mean, I barely ever go to Dallas. Hell, I only go to Dallas for The Fair and maybe to visit relatives once or twice a year. No biggie...

well with cities that big, unless you work on the other side, there is little reason to cross over.

What has made the are so unified is the employment in-between the two cities. I think in 2000 the commuting rates were past 40% solidly putting it in the metro category, but I doubt it is that high from core to core. Lots of county crossings rather than just city crossings
