I dont find them that different. They certainly have their differences, but overall, they are pretty comparable. Maybe if you grow up in Texas they seem very different?

Politically (on a statistical level), there is not much of a difference between DFW and Greater Houston. I personally met tree-huggers and virtual nazis from both.
I agree, I didn't get that from Danny's post either, and both metros are similar

Oh come on. The crime rates and gang activities are almost identical between Houston and Dallas. In fact, Dallas crime rate is slightly higher.

Either way, the difference between in saftey in both cities is very little.

Please!! That's the most obtuse comment I've read on CD in a while. That's almost as stupid as some one saying "Well, Houston at least cares enough to open its doors to those in need while uppity Dallas shrugs and goes shopping." See, pretty stupid generalizations (although the one about Dallas is true).

So...generalizations are only true when it comes to Dallas???

Hypocrisy is a horrible thing.

And it floods in Dallas too. I've been living in Houston for about 6 years and I've seen bad floods on average about twice a year. But i understand Houston is so big that it probably floods more in certain areas. It's still not as bad as people make it.



And no, Dallas is not bigger, technically. Dallas/Ft. Worth/ Arlington is bigger than Greater Houston. Houston still has that bigger city feel and bigger urban core.


Both areas have their advantages and disadvantages. They both seem like great places to live. I don't think i can choose one.
Technically speaking DFW urban core includes Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving and Dallas.

yes, and everyone knows that Butthole is code for the best. It is nice that you finally admit that Houston is the best in Texas, even though you don't know it much
