I have been to Arlington because that is where the baseball and football team is(Dallas'). Fort Worth claims to have DFW Airport and now the Cowboys. Despite the fact that neither is in Fort Worth and Tarrant County represents part of the DFW metroplex.

you have been to Arlington, b/c that is where the baseball and football team is(Dallas')?

so, you're saying that the Texas Rangers are exclusive to Dallas? not sure how you reached that conclusion...but, last time I checked, the Rangers have played ball in Arlington, TX for the past few decades bro!

and the Dallas Cowboys...sure, it's the Dallas Cowboys...but, isn't it funny how it's much closer to Fort Worth than Dallas now?? wonder why? maybe b/c Dallas had some issues with allowing a state of the art Stadium being built in Dallas? Score 1 for Arlington and Fort Worth!

i've read a few of your posts in this thread...and...wait..what's that?? lemme check the old radar!! yep, just as i suspected...troll detected!!

It was not moved there for Fort Worth though. Arlington is still a suburb of Dallas too. Its funny, Dallas had no problem building American Airlines Center. Dallas is the main part of the plex, it is the big one, and most people I have heard say Dallas when they say they are going down for a Rangers or Cowboys game. Fort Worth just has minor league teams in the city itself, Dallas has an NBA and NHL team in town. HA!

and it doesn't show cities, but it does give you an idea for counties.

Fort Worth, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fort Worth is also estimated to be at 826,665 in population by 2030 turns out. No way can it beat Dallas which has already surpassed 1.3 million.

According to the projections at Research & Information Services - NCTCOG.org Fort Worth is only about 100,000 over the projections for 2010 which was estimated to be around 620,000. Which would put it at around 926,000 in 2030 if it continues its same growth rate. Dallas has already surpassed 1.3 million and still growing. It beat its estimate for 2010 too and by 2030 it is expected to be at 1,404,847. Fort Worth cannot beat that. Sorry.

Fort Worth may not surpass Dallas in population, but it is surely going to grow buy leeps and bounds. The areas that I think will really grow will be the Alliance Area. Ross Perot has got his act together up there. They are currently expanding the runway at his airport, which will allow non stop flights to take off from there and go straight to China. This is big because this is going to open the doors to some huge industry to move in the alliance area. Fort Worth is so spread out and will always be that way.

Here is the real question. Will Fort Worth's run down areas, ex. East side (Rosdale,Martin Street, E loop 820) Ever go through a rebuild of all the run down houses? Will new neighborhoods grow from the shambles?

HA?

i never said the stadium was moved to Arlington because of Fort Worth...i just stated the fact that it IS in Arlington...which borders Fort Worth, NOT Dallas...

and I've NEVER heard anyone say they're going to Dallas to watch a Rangers game...ever.

but really, it's much ado about nothing...you see, it's dallas folks like you who seem to yearn for the supremecy of the Metroplex! you seldom find folks from Ft. Worth yearning for anything but maybe NOT wanting to be a "Dallas-ish"city...carry on, nothing to debate here Moderator cut: rude
