Random Pics of urban Fort Worth, TX

17 posts in this topic

Just a random assortment of pics from a walk my girlfriend and I took through our home of downtown Fort Worth one nice afternoon. This isn't comprehensive - we didn't go everywhere, and didn't get pics of everything, but still thought I'd share with the group.

Fort Worth is an absolutely beautiful city! I love the architecture and the streets and buildings are so pedestrian-friendly!

Thanks for posting these, Kevin! :)

Second that on the architecture. Lot of great history and urban character in those buildings.

I'll take the art deco tower, the beaux arts tower with the cleft, the building with the trumpet-blowing angel, and the mini flatiron building, please.

Those buildings are:

Deco tower - the Sinclair Building (probably, unless you mean the Texas & Pacific building). Built in 1930. Today, fully restored, offices with ground floor retail. Current retail tenants are Subway, Picchi Pacchi (Italian restaurant), a cigar store, and Shelton's Barber Shop (my favorite barber).

The Beaux Arts building is the W. T. Waggoner Building from 1919. Today, it's fully restored, and the headquarters of XTO Energy, who also owns and has/is restoring several more historic buildings in downtown.

The building with the angels is the Nancy Lee & Perry R. Bass Performance Hall, built in - seriously - 1998. A grand performance hall with great acoustics and lovely French Deco-y architecture.

The flatiron is, well, the Flatiron Building, built in 1907 as an office building. Today, it's fully restored and is now a condo building.

Ahh, Fort Worthy.

My families live there. I might move there, or not. The best place is old classic western village just north of downtown, I forgot what it called. Do you know what name of this place?

In all seriousness, I'm very impressed -- moreso than I am of the shots of downtown Dallas. Nothing against Dallas of course, but downtown Ft. Worth looks like the sort of place I would love.

From what I've seen, Fort Worth does seem to have more of a sense of place than Dallas.

Very impressive pics from Fort Worth! Thanks for posting! All the comments above are well said and totally agreed! Unique water features. Great variety! The Barnes & Noble and Cinema blend well into the urban fabric.

It's been years since I've been to Fort Worth, but there is a certain mystique that Dallas lacks. Maybe I felt like on was on the edge of the "Wild West"...esp. Western Hills

^To answer the above question?Is the area north of downtown called The Stockyards??
