Dallas: Street level pictures by thelakelander

Recommended Posts

Last week I got the chance to visit Dallas for the first time. I must say I was pretty impressed by what's going on in that city. The light rail gets good ridership numbers and downtown had a nice stream of pedestrian traffic the entire time I was there. Here are some of the several pictures I took, while on foot.

Dallas is going to be a great one in the next few decades. So much is changing each year. It will look completly different come 2010 with multiple urban projects going on. Great pics Lakelander. Did you ride the lightrail?

Very nice photos. I did not realize they had a historic trolley as well. Unfortunately DT looks about as dead as it did in 1996 when I was last there. Was this just the photos or did you notice this too?

Yes, I used DART to get around town, instead of renting a car.

Its mostly the photos because I tend not too snap pics with people in them, because I don't have the type of camera that can zoom into a crowd a block away.

The downtown scene wasn't a Manhattan or a Philly, but it wasn't an Atlanta scene either. There was a steady stream of people on the streets and the activity picked up around the rail lines. They've also got a ton of renovation and new projects going up in the core as well, so it should only get better.

Did you have a good trip?  I hope you got to check out some of the other parts of town like Knox-Henderson, Lakewood, Highland Park, etc.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I didn't rent a car (relied on DART instead) and my schedule was pretty tight, so I didn't get around as much as I wanted to. I only saw Fort Worth, downtown, Uptown and the West End for the most part. I'll try to check out some of the other areas when I return next year.

Btw, great pics Raider Dude.
