However, Dallas is definitely more "urban" than Fort Worth. It also feels more "east coast," at least to me. Since you said you'll work downtown, the TRE gives you an option to live in either city. Why not take a few days to visit both cities and decide which you like better?

I'm thinking the same. Its all great in theory but I wont really know until I try it out. I figured I would stay at an extended stay hotel for a week or two to work this out. Thanks

From what I've read, no one's blaming Dallas for anything. We're just annoyed that some people in and outside the Metroplex thinks that everything within a 50 mile radius belongs to Dallas. To truly understand that, you have to grow up here, you know?

BTW, if you agree or not, I believe that if Fort Worth was in a state no other major cities like Denver in Colorado or Atlanta in Georgia, we wouldn't be talking about this...... But I couldn't imagine Ft. Worth outside of Texas.
Dallas is nothing LIKE LA good one I needed a laugh

You brought back this thread just to respond to one small detail in something I posted 6 years ago...?

Apparently, yes. What's even more amusing is that Dallas does have many similarities to LA - very car culture and freeways/tollways, a greater degree than average of shallow "showiness" (the 30K millionaires and such), very spread out urban area with a limited city center for a metro of its size. And now, drought issues as well.

There are differences, of course, but saying that the two places are NOTHING alike is silly, and bringing back an ancient thread to say that is sillier.

Denver itself is smaller in population than some of its "suburbs" like Aurora. That's because the Colorado legislature prevented Denver from annexing as the area grew. Boulder is 30 miles away and Colorado Springs and Fort Collins are 60 miles away. Those cities each have their own identities.

For the record, I think JJG was talking about the Dallas side analogous to L.A. County and Fort Worth analogous to Orange County. Arlington would be on the border of the "Iron Curtain."

I agree with others who say there's nothing we can do about it. It may change in 40 or so years. DFW is expected to have more people than Chicago one day. It will end an eight decade era of Ny,LA, and Chi being the three most populated metros. Also around that time, FW will have about 1.4M and dallas 1.5M.

I expect that by then, there will be more marketing on the FW side. Chi, LA Have two baseball teams. LA has two bball teams. FW will have more name recognition by then nationwide.

Another sad thing is Arlington is looked at as a suburb. It's a city in the middle of two large cities. It has more people than tampa, cincinatti, stl, buffalo but its looked at as a burb.

Yeah, I know this.

I just don't get why people like to bring back old threads for no real reason...
