Potential move to Ft. Worth. Mid-40's, kids are grown, and we would like a community that offers more than Wal-Mart and Applebees for diversion (I patronize both, just need a little more: bookstores, coffee shops, etc. --)

Given where we are at in our lives, we just are not into the suburban thing anymore. Our viewpoint/values are also more centrist/liberal than what I've heard Ft. Worth tends to be.

Any input on where in Ft. Worth would be a good area for us? Where do academics tend to live? BY TCU -- ?? Where else?

I know this is asking a lot, but thanks for any information!

Default Liberal Areas

Hi There-

I would say the "Fairmont" Historical Southside District. It is a neighborhood that is experiencing a revitalization. There are new townhomes, old converted buildings with lofts and charming little bungalow/craftsman style homes that have been redone or can be. There are great little shops and restaurants, and it's close to the medical district. You can find more information at:

www.historicfairmount.com

Good Luck!
Suzanne

just because a person is an academic does not mean in this state at least that s/he is more liberal than conservative...
TCU is fairly conservative school from what I understand
check out the precinct voting map for Bush-Gore
http://fairplan.u31.infinology.net/T...20precinct.pdf
it is not that great but the only one I could find--you can see that the areas that went "liberal" in the last elections are the minority-low income areas of FTW

also know that some of the houses in that area are party houses--rented/owned by TCU students
game days around TCU bring tremendous amount of car/foot traffic...

A lack of coffee shops probably says more about 6 months with 90+ degree days than it does the intellectual vigor of the residents.

You seem to be a down to earth sister that like diversity. I would recomend the eastchase- John T. White area of Fort Worth.

John T White area--definitely not into intellectual curiosity--low income, minority, section 8, some good people but gangs as well...

My mother live off John T. White and recently got a 3000 square foot house built over there and your claims are first off racist in tone. All minorties are not low income and all East Fort Worth residents are not black. Most of the residents that do live off John T. White and Eastchase Parkaway are either black or white. A large segment of the meadowbrook, Eastchase, and John T. White area are middle class and also there are million dollar Mansion in that area. The subdivision that my mother living in off John T White contains all ethnics groups regardless of race, creed, or color. People like yourself are entilted to there opinion but we a all know what you meant by your insulting distasteful comments. I LOVE EAST FORT WORTH!!!!!!
